As both a Board Certified Family and Sports Medicine physician for over 12 years, I hear a lot of complaints with the healthcare system, especially when it comes to receiving quality, affordable primary care services. A Primary Care Physician should be the point person for a health tune-up, with a focus on wellness and prevention, but I often hear people say that most primary care physicians, treat their patients more like cattle than people. I hear complaints about costly acute care clinic and ER visits, and all that time off work just to wait for hours to be referred to back to a primary care physician for follow-ups. I even hear complaints about primary care physicians using prescriptions to treat symptoms versus taking the time to actually help people get better. Oh, and the hidden fees. I could go on, but thankfully, my practice offers an affordable solution that addresses each of those complaints and it’s called, Direct Primary Care. Direct Primary Care is an innovative healthcare approach that just might be the answer to your family’s health and well-being.
