The cost of healthcare should be transparent.
Primary care is most cost-effective when the patient and physician are directly responsible to each other.
We value professional fulfillment and life balance for physicians.

What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative, membership-based model of primary care. DPC clinics deliver high-quality care at affordable prices without insurance billing complexities. By removing the middleman, DPC benefits patients and employers by providing enhanced connectivity to physicians and transparency in pricing for routine care.
By definition, a Direct Primary Care practice charges a periodic fee, does not bill third party payors on a fee for service basis and any per-visit charge must be less than the monthly equivalent of the periodic fee.
