Our Doctor

David J. Perez, M.D. FAAFP

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

Being originally from Puerto Rico, I trained in Family Medicine at the Bella Vista Family Medicine Program. After completing this training, my wife, young daughter and I 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 for 5 years by an 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.
