Piedmont DPC offers high-quality, patient-centered primary care for adolescents and adults of all races, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities, and belief systems.
What is direct primary care?
Direct primary care, or DPC, is a modernized approach to healthcare. Patients pay a fixed monthly membership fee for unlimited access to the services provided at Piedmont DPC. Because we do not bill insurance, we are free from insurance-related restrictions around care, such as costly copayments and limits on what can be covered during a visit. The membership model also enables practice size to stay small, allowing for same-day or next-day appointments and more face time with your doctor.
Can you write letters of support?Yes. Dr. Diamond can provide verification for name and gender marker changes as well as medical letters of support for gender-affirming surgery.
Do you offer telemedicine for remote appointments?Yes. In order to meet the needs of patients across Virginia, Dr. Diamond offers virtual appointments via video conferencing. For medical concerns that cannot be addressed remotely, you will be asked to come to the office for an in-person appointment.
Do you provide referrals to specialists?Yes. If you need to see a specialist, we can refer you to specialty care and coordinate with your other providers for a streamlined, comprehensive healthcare experience. If you're interested in mental or behavioral healthcare, we can connect you with a gender-affirming psychologist or licensed clinical social worker in your area.
How old do I have to be to receive these services?You must be 18 years or older in order to receive gender care services at Piedmont DPC. Fundamental to our mission as a practice is to maintain a safe, inclusive, and affirming healthcare environment for our patients across the gender spectrum. We look forward to welcoming you to Piedmont Direct Primary Care.
