In typical primary care practices, visits are in 15 minute rushed slots. Often, there are long wait times to get an appointment or hear back from your provider about a simple question causing you to feel disconnected from your provider and your concerns unheard. Direct Primary Care (DPC) is backed by the American Academy of Family Physicians, and is a rapidly growing model that focuses on taking care of patients by removing those obstacles, so that your provider can truly focus on what matters most - you and your health!
In the DPC model, insurance is removed from the equation and patients pay a low monthly membership fee, which provides direct access to their provider, unlimited visits and telehealth visits, access to significantly reduced labs, imaging and medications. Instead of having a traditional patient panel size of 2,000+ patients to care for, DPC providers have a fraction of that, allowing them a more personal experience with a long term relationship through longer, unrushed visit times. This lends value to easy access to your provider when you most need them and placing your health and wellness as the focus.
