What is Direct Primary Care?

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an alternative payment and practice model for primary care services. The focus of a DPC practice is putting the personal relationship back into patient care which includes access to your actual physician. DPC physicians offer services for a flat monthly rate instead of a traditional fee for service arrangement. DPC physicians do not file insurance claims. Instead, DPC physicians work directly with the patient instead of the insurance corporations to offer increased access to care, faster scheduling, more time with your physician, and better and more cost effective options for medications, labs, imaging studies, and more.

Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS)

Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) refers to the use of portable ultrasound by a medical professional for diagnostic or procedural purposes and is considered by some to be the largest advancement in bedside diagnosis since the advent of the stethoscope. POCUS is a quick, abbreviated study performed and interpreted immediately by the evaluating and treating physician to help answer clinically impactful questions. In the primary care setting, POCUS has shown to aid in the completion of procedures, lower costs, decrease emergency department visits, and reduce the need for further imaging.
