Emergency Practice Associates is committed to high quality, efficient and cost-effective practice management services with an emphasis on the specialties of emergency and hospitalist medicine.
I am very impressed by the professionalism in which EPA runs their business. They are aware of how busy each facility is and are careful to prevent newly contracted physicians from overdoing a schedule in a busy facility. They do not pressure me to sign up to work and the staff is always courteous and friendly. I have enjoyed working with them and know that at whatever level you are working, as a resident, working solely in a locums status, or supplementing your practice with some outside work you will be happy with the decision to work with EPA.

It has been a pleasure working with EPA, primarily because they have distilled the process down to simply practicing medicine. By eliminating the hassle of paperwork and facilitating easy scheduling, I can focus on treating patients. The fact that the personnel are accessible and cordial is a bonus.

We were with ECS before changing to EPA. ECS was more of a distant management group that we saw once a year at best and they never held meetings for the drs. EPA staff are accessible and responsive to our requests and needs. EPA holds the quarterly meetings that give our administration, the ED Physicians, and the ED Nurse Manager the opportunity to openly discuss issues and work on improvement efforts.
St. Francis Hospital & Health Services
The number one thing I appreciate about EPA that I never got from our last provider is that you do not wait until the last minute to present new physicians to cover our ER. This presents real credentialing challenges. I also appreciate that you do not contact our local physicians for coverage, again something our last provider did to the point of harassment.

DCH has been working with EPA for over a year now and this is what we appreciate about EPA: Open communication between EPA and DCH. It is easy to relay changes to EPA and staff at EPA follows through. The ER staff appreciate the consistent doctors. The schedule is always complete and timely. EPA engages in open dialogue and problem solving. Give quality education in regards to physician documentation, physician and facility charges, and the spring symposium. EPA allows and facilitates networking amongst the facilities.
