Q. What motivated Dr. Scelfo to open this practice?
A. I felt unsettled with the care that I was able to provide in a traditional practice setting. I knew that I could adequately and appropriately treat my patient’s medical concerns within the traditional setting however, I also knew that I was not able to counsel and educate my patients on those issues and involve them or address all other aspects of their healthcare needs.
Q. Why the Celebration area?
A. Celebration was chosen due to the world class hospital with which Dr. Scelfo already had an excellent working relationship and the priority that the town residents place on their health.
Q. Do you accept insurance?
A. Yes, we are participating providers for some insurance plans. This information can change so please contact our office at (407) 566-2454 or email at Admin@MyPPCdoc.com for your insurance plan information. Please note - The membership fee is not covered through most insurance companies. This fee is an out of pocket expense to the patient.
Q. Do I still have to pay my copays, deductibles and/or coinsurance in addition to the membership fee?
A. Your initial 90-minute visit and one subsequent visit specifically focused on fitness are included in your membership fee. Any other visits throughout the year are billed to your insurance company and you are responsible for any copays, deductibles and/or coinsurance.
Q. Is my membership covered by my insurance?
A. Generally, the membership is not covered by insurance. Some executive programs will pay for the membership fee. Please check with your Employee Benefits Program to see if they cover this type of membership.
Q. Is this practice appropriate for healthy people who do not visit the doctor often?
A. The common element of all our patients is their priority on health. Our patients want to be involved in their health care decisions and understand their goals and the steps it takes to get to those goals, regardless of the frequency of visits.
Q. Are there any other practices like PPC and where are they located?
A. We are the first membership practice in the Central Florida area; however, there are several similar practices throughout the country, specifically in South Florida and on the west coast of the United States.
Q. Can I meet with a physician before joining the practice?
A. Yes, you can schedule a free 15-minute consultation and personally meet with our physicians prior to joining the practice.
Q. Why the Windermere Area?
A. The Windermere/Dr. Phillips area is a family oriented and close knit community that focuses on traditional values. Personalized Primary Care takes the same approach in the overall care of our patients.
