Medical Pods

 What is a Panel?

A panel is a group of clients cared for by one provider.  Each client selects a “preferred provider” to become a member of that panel. 
 

What are Pods?

A pod is 2-3 providers and their supporting staff working closely together to form a team/”pod”. The member of this team/”pod” include: providers, medical assistants, a nurse and a front office receptionist.  If you need care on a day your provider is not in the office, we will try to schedule you with a member of your provider’s team/”pod”. 
 

Why is it important

Our goal is that you are seen by your preferred provider whenever you need care.  Seeing one provider most of the time builds trust and improves care.
