1.Direct Primary Care 

a. What is direct primary care (DPC)?

i. Direct primary care is an innovative healthcare model that puts patients first by getting rid of the red tape that constrains traditional practices.

b. How? It’s simple: we don’t accept insurance. Instead, patients pay a monthly retainer fee for unlimited visits whether you are sick or not. This model offers better patient outcomes, greater patient satisfaction, & actually saves you money in the long run.

i. You won’t have to pay a co-pay for office visits or routine physicals. You may be able to avoid many visits altogether by sending your questions directly to us via e-mail, which is something you won’t get from a traditional practice.

ii. More importantly, since you are getting all this amazing care from us, you can cut way back on your insurance premiums. Most DPC patients find a high-deductible, low-premium insurance or health-share plan so they are covered in the case of a major health issue.
