Ambica Soni, MD,BC and with 4 years of experience is new to the community, having moved from Boston in the summer of 2013. However, she has rapidly grown her patient base due to her quality, personality, and availability. Her reputation as a quality provider is growing outside the community and she is starting to have patients from outlying areas come to Davenport to see her. This is prompting her consideration to expand into our outlying areas.
Jader Harlow,M.D.-BC-joined practice in February of 2017.
This is a non-OB setting. No FPs in area do OB.
Local FPs are not very procedurally oriented. There are no requirements for procedure capabilities, so incoming FP can do this if desired. ER is fully staffed. ER call rotates for providers who want to be on the call rotation, hospitalists will be available for provider's patients if desired.Most solo practice doctors cover call for their own patients. They make arrangements for coverage with other PCPs when they are out of town. ED call for unassigned patients is covered automatically if the provider notifies the medical staff coordinator.There are some FPs who support hospital's recruitment of FPs, but this is limited to those who would like partners. Others have made efforts to limit new practitioners. The standard of care is about 50/50 FP /IM. The area is predominately served by solo practices. The main "groups" of providers are largely made up of affiliations around managed care products (i.e. PUP, Simply, etc.). New FP will build patient base from new patients not able to see existing FP quickly enough, satellite area underutilized, succession planning (retirement), departing physician. The recruited FPs patients will come from an existing patient population who have long wait times, are unsatisfied with the existing options, and from underserved locations. They will also come from a large "snow bird" population. Hospital is building a hospitalist program, so the FP can have as much IP work as they can generate or just work in their clinic.
