Dr. William A. Lowndes is a CHI Health Clinic physician specializing in Family Medicine. Dr. Lowndes is a CHI Health Direct Primary Care provider. DPC is designed to serve patients without the barriers that can come between you, your physician and the healthcare decisions you make together. What makes Direct Primary Care different is that it is a membership fee-based style of care that enhances your access to your provider. With DPC, there is no need for insurance, co-pays or deductibles for your primary care needs. These costs are covered in the monthly membership fee, which we believe builds predictability into your monthly budget. Direct Primary Care takes some of the stress out of healthcare, while managing your risk for major emergencies. Addressing minor problems at your convenience takes in-office time with the doctor when it’s needed most.
Family Medicine Information
Family practice is the medical specialty which provides continuing and comprehensive health care for the individual and family. Family physicians possess unique attitudes, skills, and knowledge which qualify them to provide continuing and comprehensive medical care, health maintenance and preventive services to each member of the family regardless of sex, age or type of problem, be it biological, behavioral, or social. These specialists, because of their background and interactions with the family, are best qualified to serve as each patient's advocate in all health-related matters, including the appropriate use of consultants, health services, and community resources.
