Direct primary care puts the personal touch back into your doctor/ client relationship!
The direct primary care model offers a lot of benefits clients find preferable to traditional primary care doctor offices.
At a glance, these benefits can be summarized as follows:
|Direct Primary Care||A “traditional” doctor’s office|
|A direct relationship with your healthcare provider.
Less total patients per provider =’s more time with your healthcare provider.
Call us, email us, text us, and we will do telemedicine as well! We are very easy to get a hold of!
Labs, imaging, and prescription medications are sold at cost or with minimal markup.
|Appointments feel “rushed” and “hurried.”
Healthcare providers have literally several thousand patients per provider!!
Availability is typically limited to standard business hours.
2-10x mark up on labs and services.
Services are billed at the highest possible rate to maximize insurance payments to the practice.
The advantages of direct primary care practice over a traditional doctor’s office are clear.
