Cooper University Health Care is thrilled to announce the launch of a new membership-based primary care practice that provides patients with a more personalized level of care. The Direct Primary Care model offers unlimited primary care visits without insurance billing, access to the healthcare provider’s cellphone, guaranteed same-day or next-day appointments, extended appointment times, and a range of diagnostic services, preventative screenings, medically necessary referrals to specialists and more.

Leading this innovative offering at Cooper are family practitioners Drs. James Runfola and Leonard Ridilla, who have been working in a DPC-model office for the past five years. According to Runfola, this model is particularly beneficial for patients with chronic medical conditions as well as those who desire immediate access to their physician. Ridilla added that while this model may not be suitable for everyone, patients who wish to be more engaged with their primary care physician will have the opportunity to do so at Cooper. This level of access allows for same-day and next-day appointments as well as the option to speak with the provider over the phone after hours.

Dr. Greg Taylor, medical director at Cooper Care Alliance commented on this unique model’s ability to provide patients with a personalized level of care by offering more time and attention from their doctor. The launch of this program coincided with another exciting addition to the Cooper Health team: former U.S. District Judge John Vazquez who will be serving as the health care provider’s first chief legal officer. The Direct Primary Care office is located at 89 N. Haddon Ave in Haddonfield.
