It is with great pleasure that I write this supportive letter of recommendation for Frances Ducar and Healthcare Solutions Centers, LLC, a creative company impacting the healthcare marketplace and the health and wellness of our community. Serving as the current President of the Maricopa County Medical Society, and immediate past President of the Arizona Foundation for Medical Care, I am keenly aware of the critical need for innovative improvements in our current system to directly address costs and access to care. Healthcare Solutions Centers was created by Frances Ducar, a well-known and respected healthcare provider with vast clinical experience, to positively address these deficiencies in the marketplace. As a Board-certified Gastroenterologist, I have been in clinical practice for over 15 years, taking care of patients with gastrointestinal and liver concerns, as well as prevention of colon cancer. In an effort to meet the needs of patients and the market, we have a state-licensed, Medicare-certified, AAAHC-accredited ambulatory surgery center (ASC) on-site where we provide timely preventative and therapeutic procedures in a cost effective manner. We have joined together with others to form the third largest GI practice in the country, and are entirely paperless. Interfacing with hundreds of other providers in the Valley, I am not only impressed by the organizational infrastructure and business model with coordination of care at on-site clinics, taking care of problems in a timely fashion (often on the same day), but what truly stands out is the high quality of care documented in thorough electronic medical records that arrive before the patient’s appointment. My perception is uniformly validated by the patient’s confidence in their HCS provider, and the care that they are coordinating.
