David J. Badolato, M.D.

Dr-Badolato“Concierge Medical Services of FPUD has allowed my patients and me more quality time for needed quality care. This personal care program strengthens the physician-patient relationship, affording me the opportunity to provide the continuity of care and access to care that all patients deserve. Another benefit of this program is that more time is available for coordination of care with other health care professionals, caregivers and family members. Most importantly, CMS-FPUD allows me to sustain the core values and services that I believe are a fundamental part of fulfilling my role as a family doctor.”

Dr. Badolato has been practicing family medicine in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania since 1978. He has special interests and experience focused on healthcare models of quality patient care. Dr. Badolato has presented on models of quality healthcare in region, state and national venues. He has presented to all stakeholders, including patients, academia, insurers, members of government and healthcare providers. In April 2006 he founded “Life Laboratory” – a non-profit organization dedicated to studying healthcare quality and much needed healthcare reform. In addition to his patient care in CMS-FPUD, Dr. Badolato will continue to provide leadership to Life Laboratory and for Family Practice Associates of Upper Dublin Classic Practice.
