"We focus on getting you well, and keeping you that way. "Less medication, more meditation," that's our motto. Ever wonder why you can't get an appointment with your doctor? Ever wonder why, when you finally can see your doctor they have no time to listen? HMO doctors usually have between 5000 and 9000 patients. That means they are seeing 50-60 patients per day! In between those patients they have to write notes, answer e-mails, make phone calls and argue with insurance companies about the care their patients need. The insurance company is a third-party to your relationship, getting in the way, demanding more from your doctor so they have less for you. Direct Primary Care means that you have a direct relationship with your doctor, with no third party involved. It also means that your doctor has a much smaller number of patients, usually less than 900. That means your doctor can see you right now, today, tomorrow. Your doctor can spend 30 minutes or an hour, or whatever it takes. Your doctor can answer your phone calls, return your e-mails, write your refills. Your doctor can spend time on your needs, not on some third-party's rules and paperwork, and not on thousands of other patients."
