Quality Time

Hundreds of thousands of patients across the country are joining direct primary care practices. They’ve found the perfect match: care when you need it at an affordable price. Read their stories.

Everybody has been told their whole lives that they must rely on health insurance, and that’s the only way to get a doctor. There are more choices out there. Direct primary care changed the way I think about my health and the healthcare system.

A good wake up call

There’s something about having a child that makes you step back and really take inventory of how responsible you are with your health. I've always been a healthy guy - I didn’t have a check up for 12 years - and all of sudden I find myself searching for a primary care doctor. Except nobody ever really teaches you how to do that.

This is why people avoid the doctor

So after waiting weeks to schedule my first doctor’s appointment in years, I show up at a health system. It’s straight up assembly-line medicine: Packed waiting room, nobody makes eye contact, the front desk just asks for your insurance card without even a hello. When I finally see the doctor, they ask “what’s wrong” like they’re ready to walk me out. All I wanted was to establish a relationship with a doctor.

Making it to shore

People seem brainwashed about their health care. It’s like everybody is out in the ocean treading water, and I miraculously made it to shore when I found my direct primary care doctor. Everybody has been told their whole lives that they must rely on health insurance, and that’s the only way to get a doctor. There are more choices out there. Direct primary care changed the way I think about my health and the healthcare system. I’m happy I found my DPC doctor - somebody who gets me, takes care of me, is there for me, and I would even call a friend now.
