What is it like to be a patient in my Direct Primary Care Practice?

Updated: Mar 18

Being a patient in my direct primary care (DPC) practice is a markedly different experience compared to traditional healthcare settings. In my practice, patients enjoy personalized care. In My practice, you are always seen by myself, a Board Certified Family Medicine Physician, not a nurse practitioner or PA. I have far fewer patients than the typical corporate based practice, allowing me to spend more time with each of my patients. This means appointments are longer, allowing for in-depth discussions about your health concerns.

This allows me to offer greater access to care. This includes same-day or next business day appointments, as well as the ability to reach me via phone, text, or email for urgent concerns. I offer virtual visits, allowing you to consult with me remotely. We operate on a membership model. This simplifies the administrative process and eliminates the need to navigate extensive paperwork or copayments for basic care. My patients know exactly how much they're paying each month for membership, and what optional services are available, there are no surprises when it comes to additional costs for visits or procedures within the practice.


As a Lifestyle Medicine Physician, I prioritize preventive care and wellness. With more time to spend with me, I emphasize lifestyle changes, health education, and proactive screenings to prevent health issues before they arise.

With my sub-specialty in Neuropathy and Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine, I offer a wide range of services beyond just primary care. These optional services may include Manual Therapy, extensive Nutrition testing and counseling, Softwave Therapy, Laser Therapy, Spinal Decompression, Ultrasound, Neuropathy Treatments.

Because of the personalized nature of my practice, patients tell me that FINALLY they feel like they are really being listened to. This develops stronger relationship between my patients and myself. This leads to better communication, greater trust, and improved health outcomes. If you'd like to read more about what patients are saying about our practice you can HERE
