"The hectic pace of modern life forces compromises in many areas. One area we feel should not be compromised is your healthcare. As a result, we decided to take a step back and reassess our delivery of healthcare. Traditionally, Internists are trained as specialists in adult medicine. In the 1980’s the medical community attempted to redefine Internal Medicine as primary care. With the changing primary care medical environment, the emphasis has increasingly been to see a greater number of patients in a shorter time. Internists, who approached issues in a comprehensive manner and deal with multiple and complex medical issues, are ill-suited to these increasingly severe time constraints. In 2002, after over 15 years of struggling to balance our training against these shifting expectations, we decided to reinvent ourselves and return to a time when physicians took better and more comprehensive care of their patients. Bellevue Medical Partners PLLC was one of the first clinics in the Seattle area to pursue a new model of healthcare delivery that emphasizes individualized medical care in a service-oriented professional atmosphere: We practice in a relaxed environment with generous time allowances. A practice that allows you and your physician to build a relationship – a partnership – to personalize your medical care. State-of-the-art medical care delivered by specialists in adult medicine. We have a limited number of patients to ensure quality of care and access to your physician."
