Welcome to Personalized HealthCare

David A. Chappell, MD | Concierge Physician | Petaluma, CA

As a patient in my practice, you’ll receive truly patient-focused and personalized healthcare. My smaller practice size provides my patients and me more quality time together…not only to treat complex issues but to focus on prevention and wellness.

I realize for any patient, choosing a physician to entrust your care to is a big decision. Therefore I’d like to share some information about me and my approach to patient care.

What Is Concierge Medicine?

Concierge medicine, also known as membership medicine, is a relationship between a patient and a primary care physician in which the patient pays an annual fee or retainer.

In exchange for the retainer, doctors provide enhanced care, including principally a commitment to limit patient loads to ensure adequate time and availability for each patient.

  • Timely office visits
  • Extended office hours
  • House Calls
  • Discovering what is right for each patient
  • Direct communications to me during office hours (and after!)
  • Collaborative Care
  • A strong focus on preventive medicine and long term health and wellness
  • Adult dependent children of members are welcome
  • Care for visiting family and friends
  • Personal care and commitment
