What We Do

Direct Primary Care is an emerging primary care model in which primary care services are offered for an affordable monthly membership.  It allows us to practice medicine in a way that truly puts that patient first. This means:
  • No co-pays or deductibles for visits
  • Visits are always with your physician
  • Wholesale prescription medications and lab tests
  • Easy access to your personal physician through secure messaging or telephone
  • Care delivered the way you need it - in person, remotely, or in some cases at home or your workplace
  • Transparent pricing - no surprises!
  • Plans of care and treatments are decided by you and your physician - not by an insurance company or an administrator.
