What is Direct Primary Care?

Our direct primary care model is based on an old-fashioned idea – building a long-term relationship between patient and care team. Instead of working through insurance companies, you work directly with a doctor and care team who know you and your needs. Visits don’t involve long waits or rushed appointments – we take time to focus on every patient and offer customized comprehensive care.
