Continuing a Tradition of Medical Excellence
in Greater Portland since 1959
Greetings to current and prospective patients, and welcome to our new website.
We are pleased to announce changes in our practice which took effect as of April 1, 2013. As of that date, we became a "direct pay" practice. This means that your physician, Michael A. Ciampi, M.D. and his dedicated staff are working for you directly, not for your insurance company nor the government. Practicing this way gives us the freedom to collaborate with patients to create treatment plans that work best for them, not plans which will save their insurance company the most money. Because we eliminate the insurance companies as the middleman in your healthcare, we reduce our costs so that we can charge lower and more reasonable rates than we had to when dealing with insurance. This savings is passed on to you.
Because we no longer contract with insurance companies, Medicare or Medicaid, we can be more flexible and innovative. We use technology when it helps us take better care of patients, but we refuse to use it for technology's sake. We will not spend our visit staring at a computer screen instead of looking at you. We can also spend more time with patients than the typical provider in a "big box" medical practice. We provide personalized, high quality medical care. Every appointment is with your personal physician who is board certified in Family Medicine. We do not have physician assistants or nurse practitioners.
We value long term relationships with patients. We look forward to seeing you!
Please note that we do not prescribe medicinal marijuana.
We do not prescribe suboxone or other narcotics for chronic pain.
