Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an easier way to get the health care you need for a price you can afford.
Its core emphasis is on an enduring and trusting relationship between a patient and his or her primary care provider.
An expanding number of patients, physicians, and employers nationwide are choosing Direct Primary Care.
Visits focused on the whole patient: long-term health and wellbeing, as well as urgent problems.
"Direct Primary Care makes sense to us. We do not have health insurance and do not fall within an income bracket to receive any aid. We are a family of six and pay out of pocket for all medical bills. We know what our costs will be for comprehensive direct primary care! We can budget for it and have our own doctor who knows us well!"
"Direct Primary Care has allowed my husband to get back on track with his health and well-being, and we have not had to worry about the high expense of going to a doctor’s office 3, 4, even 5 times. Visits are included in membership!"
“With Direct Primary care: we have peace of mind knowing that if we need to go to the doctor it isn’t going to cost us $100’s of dollars each time. We understand that it does not take the place of insurance, but this is great – to know we can call or see the doctor without breaking our budget.”
“Direct Primary Care has returned the power to me, as a health care consumer. I know my doctor and she knows me. I feel like I am in control of my health and she helps me negotiate the medical system. I do not need to go in to see her each time I have a question or problem. She answers her phone, or I simply message her.”
“Direct Primary Care is the way healthcare should be — affordable, accessible, and open to my schedule and my needs. Reaching and scheduling with my doctor is so much more convenient than the regular system.”
“The office is centered on my needs and concerns. I feel supported without burdened or inconvenienced by being fit into their office hours or their 15 minute visit slots. My doctor spends all the time I need with him.”
