About Us

As a direct primary care provider, we focus on you and your health without the influence of unnecessary third party restrictions. We see far fewer patients than a traditional insurance-based practice so we can provide you the best care possible.

Our patient benefits include full access to care without barriers. You’ll have more time with your doctor, easy access, no co-pays, and no limit on visits. This includes physicals, pediatric care, wellness education, chronic disease management, simple procedures, and more. Check out our full description of benefits here.
