  • Dr. Lisa Zwerdlinger| RMFP Leadville

    A legacy of caring. Dr. Lisa Zwerdlinger “I have been practicing medicine for 27 years. I believe that health care is for the patient. It should be delivered where the patient needs it at the time that they need it, and at a price they can afford. In our current healthcare environment, insurance companies and health systems get in the way of the doctor-patient relationship. With Rocky Mountain Family Practice of Leadville, you will have access to the health care provider you have come to know and trust when you need me and not just when it is convenient for the system. It has been my pleasure and my privilege to care for you and your family for decades. I look forward to continuing that journey together.” ¡La mejor atención comienza aquí! La Dra. Zwerdlinger creció en Conifer, Colorado y asistió a la Universidad de Colorado para obtener su título universitario, escuela de medicina y residencia. Ahora, se desempeña como facultad académica y clínica como profesora titular en el Centro de Ciencias de la Salud de la Universidad de Colorado y en la Facultad de Medicina Osteopática de la Universidad Rocky Vista, enseñando a los estudiantes de medicina sobre medicina familiar en sus rotaciones rurales. Como generalista, la Dra. Lisa atiende a pacientes de todas las edades y géneros. “Mi práctica abarca todo el espectro, desde el nacimiento hasta la muerte y todo lo demás, desde la atención preventiva hasta las condiciones crónicas y urgentes”, dice. Su filosofía de atención al paciente es igualmente sólida y directa. “Tengo un sentido muy claro en mi alma de lo que está bien y lo que está mal. Si haces lo correcto, nunca te equivocas. Es algo que me guía todo el tiempo”. Su pasión por vivir y jugar en las montañas la trajo a Leadville. Es una ávida ciclista de montaña, escaladora, escaladora de hielo y esquiadora de travesía. La Dra. Lisa es coautora de muchos artículos y estudios sobre fisiología de altura. Ella es la asesora médica del grupo local de búsqueda y rescate y del High Mountain Institute, y ayuda a Outward Bound con consejos médicos fuera del país. El Dr. Zwerdlinger tiene una larga lista de premios y reconocimientos, incluido el haber recibido el premio Elección de los pacientes a través de los premios Elección de los pacientes de Vitals y el Doctor compasivo de Vitals durante los últimos años, que reconoce a los mejores médicos y a aquellos que brindan una atención ejemplar. Ha sido votada como la "Mejor proveedora" del Herald Democrat en numerosas ocasiones, y recientemente recibió el Premio Superhéroe de la Asociación de Hospitales de Colorado por ir más allá durante la pandemia de COVID, exhibiendo rasgos como coraje, un código moral sólido, espíritu de lucha y fortaleza mental. ¡La mejor atención comienza aquí!

A prime feature that attracted us is the accessibility and availability of the physician, with whom we can now meet as needed at almost any time. In our later years, knowing that she is willing to come to us in our homes, is also a big plus. In addition to the benefits of the program, we admire Dr. Lisa’s significant experience in and superior knowledge of her field, along with her honesty and care in working with patients. A personal example: A few months ago, I made an appointment to see her regarding nine personal health questions or concerns. She studied my list ahead of time followed by an appointment at her clinic that lasted a full hour. We had a very positive exchange. I found her to be a good listener and willing to work with me, jointly exploring options. We feel very fortunate to have her as our doctor and to be a part of her DPC healthcare program.

  • Frequently asked questions | RMFP Leadville

    Frequently asked questions and answers ​ What is Rocky Mountain Family Practice of Leadville? Rocky Mountain Family Practice of Leadville (RMFP) is a primary care practice that offers Direct Primary Care (DPC). This healthcare model was intentionally chosen by Dr. Lisa Zwerdlinger because it focuses on patient care, clinical excellence, accessibility, and service. By adopting the DPC model RMFP has put patient care first. ​ What is DPC? Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative alternative payment model for improving access to high-functioning healthcare with a simple, flat, affordable membership fee. No fee-for-service payments. No third-party (insurance) billing. Patients have extraordinary access to a physician of their choice and physicians are accountable first and foremost to their patients. (Direct Primary Care Coalition, 2021). ​ Additional benefits of DPC and RMFP include: • Direct contact with your doctor when you need them • More time with your doctor • Simple pricing schedule • No Co-pays or insurance billing issues • After-hours access to providers by phone, text, or email • Affordable healthcare options to assist business owners in offering healthcare options to employees. ​ How do appointments and scheduling work with RMFP? Rocky Mountain Family Practice of Leadville is membership-based. We ensure that patients can see Dr. Lisa when they need her care by limiting the number of members. Members just reach out via phone, email, or text to have access to Dr. Lisa Zwerdlinger. ​ RMFP is about delivering healthcare where the patient needs it when they need it. A member of RMFP will be seen when they request care and as often as they need/want to be seen. Appointment lengths are dictated by what the patient needs to address in that visit as opposed to how many patients can be squeezed into the day. Dr. Lisa Zwerdlinger will see patients in person at the office, on telehealth, or coming to where the patient is in Lake County. Can I receive urgent care at RMFP without a membership? Yes, we recognize sometimes you just need medical attention that is urgent but not emergency care. You can get this care for $150.00/visit at RMFP of Leadville. Just call to request an urgent visit. ​ Does Rocky Mountain Family Practice of Leadville take insurance? At RMFP, everything we do is with the patient in mind. We keep costs down and provide timely access to medical care by offering an inclusive fixed-monthly fee. By not billing insurance for the care we provide in the office, we minimize the medical practice’s administrative workload while increasing the time we spend with patients. You are still able to use your insurance if services are needed outside of our office like specialty consultations with other doctors, tests at outside facilities, and services provided in hospitals for example. ​ Most patients save money overall by not needing to pay copays, meet deductibles, or have unnecessary testing or specialist/urgent care visits. As your physician will be focused on you, your care is well coordinated and you always have access to your physician. ​ Do I need to keep insurance? Yes, though with an RMFP membership, you may desire to adjust your coverage plan to focus more on prescriptions, and major medical expenses such as emergency, imaging, labs, or hospitalization to decrease your overall costs. ​ If you have questions about your Medicare supplement insurance or Medigap and how choosing a less expensive option could help you save money, please visit Supplement Insurance (Medigap) plans in Colorado (medicare.gov) or State Health Insurance Assistance Program.

  • Is DPC For You? | RMFP Leadville

    Is DPC Right For You? Why Direct Patient Care? Have you ever wished that you had a personal physician who could help you coordinate your care and make sure things didn't slip through the cracks? Do you worry that you will not be able to stay in your home as you get older because you just don't have the medical support you need? Have you ever gone to the emergency room and gotten stuck with a big bill for a simple treatment that you know could have easily been done in the office or over the phone? Have you been turned away by your primary care provider because their schedule is full for the day? Are you frustrated that you can’t access your primary care provider when you need them? Then DPC is right for you! If you have health insurance: It is probable that with health insurance you pay several thousands of dollars out of your pocket every year for co-pays and deductibles. With RMFP of Leadville’s Direct Patient Care practice, you pay about $100 per month or $1,200 per year. If you get most of your care in a primary care provider's office, your potential savings is thousands of dollars per year. You may be able to reduce the cost of your current insurance plan once you have primary care available anytime and as often as you need it with Dr. Lisa Zwerdlinger. If you don’t have health insurance: Many people are in the healthcare gap where they make too much money to qualify for Medicaid and too little to afford health insurance. Direct Patient Care breaks down the barrier to primary care for the uninsured. If you can pay on average $100 per month or $1200 per year, you can have excellent primary care at an affordable price. RMFP of Leadville also offers family pricing. Testimonials Here's what patients across the United States have to say about DPC. “As a patient, I really appreciate how my Direct Care practice handles billing. I know exactly what I’m being charged for, and how much. Not only that, but if I have any questions on my bill I can email, text, or call my doc and get a near immediate response. That’s incredible when you consider all the hours, I’ve spent on hold with billing departments over the years!” “My doctor told me about the car insurance analogy – he said medical insurance should be treated like car insurance; pay directly for things like checkups, a broken arm, and the like, and save insurance for the big-ticket items. Just like you pay for gas and oil changes directly and save insurance for accidents and major repairs! Makes perfect sense.” “I knew I’d enjoy not having to deal with insurance, but I never imagined it would be this nice. Making payments directly to my Direct Care clinic is hassle-free. I pay only for what I need when I need it. I have more control over my family’s medical expenses, and I know my family’s in good hands. It doesn’t get much better than this.” ​ “If medical billing is this easy on me and my family, I hope it’s this easy on the docs, too! I get an email each month telling me what my invoice total is. Then I get another email to confirm my payment has gone through. I can care for my family without giving the hassle of making a payment a second thought.” ¡La mejor atención comienza aquí! Empezar
