What is DPC?

Direct primary care (DPC) allows for direct contracting for services between physicians (or other healthcare providers) and individual patients. Insurance is not accepted in the DPC model. This allows for many features and benefits that are not available in an insurance-based, fee-for-service practice.

Direct Primary Care allows physicians to maintain small patient panels, which allow for more time and attention to be dedicated to each patient. This promotes the doctor-patient relationship and facilitates the delivery of personalized care.

 

Our Direct Primary Care (DPC) membership includes the following
features:

Same and next-day appointments guaranteed. 

  • Unpressured appointments, which begin on time and last the time necessary to allow for thorough evaluation and care. 

  • Telephone, email, text access to the physician. Many issues can be resolved without a visit and instead can be handled via electronic communications. 

  • After-hours and weekend access to the physician via phone or text. 

  • Home visits (available within a 20-mile radius; only available for acutely ill or homebound patients, deemed appropriate for a home visit by the physician).  

  • All routine office procedures (joint injections, EKG, point-of-care ultrasound, sutures, splints, wart/ skin lesion removal or destruction, breathing tests (spirometry), abscess drainage, strep tests, urinalysis etc....) are included in our Direct Primary Care Subscription and visit fees, which are simple, transparent, and easy to understand. 

  • Mental health and addiction medication management like Suboxone, Sublocade, Vivitrol treatment are included. 

  • Significant discounts on labs and imaging services. 

  • Medications dispensed onsite at near wholesale prices (no controlled substances).  Often the prices are less than can be found at most pharmacies, using a discount card.
