1. Memebership
    Patients join by paying a flat monthly fee that covers nearly all of the primary care we can do in the office. We do not bill insurance, including Medicare. This keeps our costs low. We pass the savings on to our patients. The membership fee is age based, paid monthly, quarterly or yearly. The membership automatically renews monthly.
  2. Transparent Pricing
    Most everything we can do in the office is included- EKGs, sutures, joint injections (except medication), urinalysis tests to name a few. Examples of things that may cost extra include: send out labs, medication, pathology specimen, splints or ace wraps, some bandages, etc. When these costs are needed, you will know at the time of service or in advance. We work hard to find the lowest cost for our members.
  3. Personal Physician-patient relationship
    I limit the number of patients who may join the practice to 600 or less. This ensures that I have time to take care of your individual needs. I want to know my patients so that I may give better care. Office visits are longer- 30 minutes to an hour is the norm. For patients who need home visits or visits to an assisted living/nursing home facility, these are arranged when appropriate. I am also available by phone, text, email or video after hours.
  4. Coordination of Care
    Many of our patients may need specialists or tests/procedures that we are not able to provide. We have the time to help arrange these referrals and search for the most-cost effective solution to your needs. This may help to reduce your out of pocket health care costs as well.
  5. Wholesale Medications
    While we support our local pharmacies, we do have the opportunity to provide some wholesale medications to our members. This is another way we save members money- many times enough to offset the cost of the membership. Bring in your list and let us see if we can help.
