Services Catered to the Success of Private Physicians

The ACPP works hard to serve its members by fostering beneficial collaborations and holding our vendors to the highest standards.

Our Mission

The ACPP wants to support established private physicians in their journey in providing concierge medicine and direct primary care to patients. We want to grow awareness of and encourage the private physician practice model to new physicians as well as seasoned physicians who may want to learn more about this style of practice. The ACPP promotes the collaboration of our member body, knowing that we are stronger together. Through our service network of vendor relationships, we can provide our members with paramount service lines to implement best practices into their workflows.

The ACPP is set on achieving our long-term goals: we want to become the formally-recognized physician society and database for concierge and direct primary care physicians, and we intend on developing board certification and fellowship programs in the fields of concierge medicine and direct primary care.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a private physician?

A private physician is a concierge or direct primary care physician who practices with a model that puts the patient before payors. In using this practice model, private physicians coordinate directly with patients regarding their care. Generally, private physicians choose to cater to a smaller patient base in order to provide tailored, custom care to each individual patient to better meet their unique needs.
