Dr. Morris has experience providing preventative care in addition to treating a vast array of both chronic and acute medical problems, and she values a holistic approach to medical treatment."
"Direct primary care is a return to the fundamental principles of a doctor/patient relationship that saves money and improves care. It is based on a direct professional and financial relationship between patient and physician, eliminating many of the burdens and complexity of traditional care that made it more expensive and less patient-centric. By eliminating the process of claim submission, a physician can routinely spend 45 minutes with a patient and truly understand their illness, frequently making expensive testing and referrals unnecessary."
