Donny from Massachusetts, 52Read more
A few years ago, I was kicking and screaming in pain. I had a herniated disk and was sure I was headed for surgery. Most doctors probably would have just signed off on it, but my doctor really took the time.... I ended up not needing surgery and feel so much better - all because he took the time to figure out the right holistic solution for me.

Kelley from Virginia, 41Read more
I was expecting a receptionist to pick up the phone to schedule me weeks or months out. I couldn't believe it was actually the doctor herself speaking to me. She spent 20 minutes of her time to explain the DPC model of care and then offered me a next day appointment for my new patient exam.

I'm so glad we signed up for DPC. Our very first visit with our doc, we needed to take care of a very small cosmetic procedure. She [our DPC doctor] handled it right then and there, during the visit. We were anticipating being referred out and going through this whole long process.

Kate from Massachusetts, 39Read more
Back in 2014, I got really sick and nobody could figure out why. Every doctor I saw would just refer me away or tell me I have anxiety. Nobody had the time. I needed help, and so I found my own wellness journey and began looking for doctors and practitioners who actually listened and thought more holistically.
