Lowcountry Wellness Center is a Charleston primary care practice that uses the Direct Primary Care (DPC) model, which removes the middleman (aka – insurance) from the provider-patient relationship. This allows our West Ashley clinic to provide better, personalized care for the patient by allowing us to focus on the patient and not on charts and insurance codes. The health care service we provide is not dictated or made inefficient by interference of insurances. Just like how it was in the old days.
Partnering with a DPC provider has proven to have better health outcomes for patients. This is due to the 24/7 of the primary care provider and the lack of co-pays and/or co-insurance that might otherwise interfere with patient care. With DPC, Penni Vachon, DNP, APRN & her team work together with their patients as an active member of the health care team to bring better health and wellness outcomes.
The DPC monthly membership fee covers an annual wellness exam including women’s wellness (lab fee additional). DPC also covers acute and chronic disease management, wellness and nutrition education. Members can expect to have same-day or next-day appointments when they need to be seen. Members also benefit from extended visit times that start at a minimum of 30 minute appointments. Other benefits include greatly discounted medicines, in-office procedures, and added savings of discounted labs and imaging.
