Welcome to Placer Private Physicians

Imagine a medical practice where you have direct communication with your physician when it is convenient for you. An office that is free of the rushed and impersonal environment typical of medical care today. A place where you can spend the time you need with your doctor to have your questions and concerns thoroughly addressed. A practice that utilizes advanced technology allowing you to save time and access your medical information easily.

Now stop imagining, and let Dr. Hedman, Dr. Lichti and Dr. Brown welcome you to Placer Private Physicians.



  • This medical model is one I had hoped for, and I am honored to be a part of this exciting change. Such a personal and relaxed setting for a patient, without all the stress and chaos of a typical doctor’s office.

  • My wife recently underwent an extensive surgical procedure.  Drs. Hedman and Lichti have been there for us during every step of her difficult recovery.  This mode of physician responsiveness and sensitivity rarely exists in our medical system today.  Placer Private Physicians offers competent, unique, and exceptional medical care.  We would highly recommend this medical practice to anyone seeking outstanding personalized healthcare.

    DK and EK
  • My wife and I love being able to spend all the time we need with Dr. Lichti instead of feeling rushed. Thank you for this new style of patient care.

    Eric L
  • Drs. Hedman and Lichti and their fantastic staff are relaxed and obviously quite happy in their comfortable new office. We seldom wait for our appointments, and we can see the doctor when ever the need arises. They address all sorts of problems often making it unnecessary for us to see other specialists.  We feel fortunate to have joined their practice.

    SW and LW
  • Dr. Hedman consults with other specialists as needed, ensuring they are all on the same page with treatment.  He has great diagnostic skills and is very considerate.  The office is wonderful, not the “Grand Central” that we have all encountered with physician’s offices. It is quiet, relaxing and an excellent environment. The staff are all considerate to follow up with phone calls, checking to see how we are doing and to make new appointments.  We are so fortunate to have Placer Private Physicians with Dr. Hedman and Dr. Lichti, and would recommend them highly.

    SG and FG
  • My wife followed Dr. Lichti from his old office because she appreciated his prior care.  I did not join because I did not see the benefit.  Recently, she experienced problems with a very rapid heart rate and was concerned so she called the office and was told to come in immediately. She was given such kind, immediate, professional and concerned help that I realized there are definitely benefits to this type of practice and I too joined the practice two days later.  I am sure we will both receive the health care we need and deserve in the future.

    CVD and LVD
  • I wanted to reach out and thank Dr. Hedman, Dr. Lichti, Dr. Brown and your entire team for all that you were doing in this unprecedented time. I truly appreciate the communication and the dedication that you all show to the health and well-being of your patients.

    You will continue to be at the front line of this pandemic for quite a while and I appreciate being part of your practice.

    I plan on doing everything that I can to avoid needing your help in the coming months! I know that if I need you, you’re practice is there.

    My best to all of your practice. I pray that you and your families will stay healthy during this time.

Unprecedented Connection

Reach your doctor when you need them most with 24/7 access by phone, text or email, then discover the added convenience of consultations by phone, video, or in-home care when needed. It is our goal to provide you with seamless care and that means staying on top of your health whether we are seeing you in the office, your home, or in the hospital.

Comprehensive Healthcare

From infants to the elderly, our physicians care for the entire family. Whether treating acute illness, managing chronic disease, or optimizing health and wellness, our team is here for you. We gladly accept Medicare patients and look forward to having you as a member of our direct primary care practice.

Time to Address Your Needs

Take the time you need with unhurried, longer appointments. Our doctors only accept around 300 patients each compared to 3,000 patients per physician in most traditional practices. Having fewer patients gives us the time to focus on the individual needs of you and your family.
