Just gimme the facts

Since launching in early 2018, the DPC Alliance has quickly grown to over 300 members. In this process, we have gathered some valuable information about DPC physicians (or soon to be) and practices nationwide. While this does not represent all DPC practices (estimated at over 900), we believe this is the single largest, broad survey of DPC physicians & practices to date. (Data as of Sep, 11, 2018)
