Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative alternative payment model for primary care being embraced by patients, practitioners, employers, payers and policymakers across the United States. The defining element of DPC is an enduring and trusting relationship between a patient and their primary care provider.

Concierge medicine is traditionally defined as a relationship between a patient and primary care physician in which the patient pays an annual fee or retainer. This fee can range anywhere from $2,000 to $30,000 a year. Many concierge doctors also bill insurance or Medicare for actual medical visits.

DPC is an insurance-free model which offers significant savings in addition to concierge-level care.

Having a personal relationship with a primary care provider will help prevent adverse medical issues.

We recommend that our patients continue to carry a major medical plan. This will ensure financial assistance should hospitalization or referral to a specialist be necessary.

In providing superb care with unprecedented types of access, we seek to prevent or reduce hospitalizations and specialty referrals. In instances where these types of care are required, we will work closely with other specialists during your stay in the hospital.

Yes of course! Because illness and injury do not respect regular office hours, you may call, text, or email your practitioner any day and at any hour.

We are here to help to provide you care where you are – yet another freedom we enjoy together as a result of our independence from the restrictions of insurance companies. Because we’re familiar with your medical history, we can streamline your care when you’re sick away from home. In the age of telemedicine, many illnesses can be diagnosed and treated with a simple conversation by phone or webcam. We’ll locate the nearest pharmacy and order the medications most appropriate for your present circumstances.

Please schedule a free consultation to discuss your needs for health care.
