Our Doctor

David J. Perez, M.D. FAAFP

Board Certified Family Physician
Fellow American Academy of Family Physicians
Fellowship Trained Geriatric Physician

Having been born, raised and meeting my wife in Puerto Rico, it was a natural transition to stay and train in our native island at a Loma Linda affiliated hospital called Bella Vista. After completing Family Medicine residency, we moved to Illinois to complete a post-graduate fellowship in Geriatric Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Soon after, I became Associate Medical Director of Hospice and Palliative Care with a national hospice organization and managed their Chicagoland inpatient hospice unit. I held this position until we moved to California. Before Premier Direct Care, I was employed by a Medicare HMO subcontractor in the Coachella Valley. 

In my experience, I have learned that the healing Patient-Doctor relationship needs to be center stage in Medical Care. I believe Premier Direct Care can accomplish this and I invite you to come see for yourself. Welcome to the first Direct Primary Care practice in the Coachella Valley.
