Practice Details:

"I started my medical training as a child at the offices of the doctors in my family. I saw professionalism in practice and learned how to be attentive and courteous, to uphold ethical standards, to take charge and solve problems, and to find help when it was needed. I attended medical school in California at Loma Linda University, graduating in 2010, and went to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for my Internal Medicine residency, which I completed in 2013. I stayed at Dartmouth for an additional residency in Leadership Preventive Medicine, which included a Masters of Public Health from The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. Since then, I’ve practiced full-time clinical medicine at a critical access hospital in rural New Hampshire, a community medical center in Everett, Washington, and a large academic institution as a Clinical Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC). I have served on numerous committees and projects, often in roles of design and data analysis, to improve quality and safety for patients. Through those varied experiences, I discovered a direct primary care model best allows me to incorporate my values into a professional practice that meets the needs of patients. I find time to be the key aspect to much of medicine. My patients do better when I have the time to conduct thorough reviews and examinations, educate and explain how diseases and treatments work, supervise lifestyle changes on an ongoing basis, and provide timely access for answering questions. This model allows me to holistically address the medical needs of patients: giving them my full attention, building relationships, and advancing my skills in the arts and sciences of medicine. I volunteer a half day every week at the Samaritan House free clinic, and I like to spend my free time in nature with my wife and dog, or in the kitchen baking bread."

Clinic Details:

"Exceptional quality and direct access at a fair price. Medicine is complex; talking to your doctor can be easy. I’m Dr. John Wuchenich and I believe that primary care should be robust. It should be timely and effective and efficient. It should be affordable, and it should be transparent about the other costs it generates (like medications and tests). It should plan for the future, and help prevent problems. And it should value relationships. These are the pillars on which I’ve built my practice. In my office, I provide all the same services as a traditional general internal medicine office, including routine health checkups, visits for urgent problems, and chronic disease management. But I offer same and next day appointments for my patients (weekends included). I spend longer with each patient so I can know them more, and that helps me give better advice and make better medical plans. My patients can call, text, email, or video chat with me because there are many problems that can be solved outside the office. Additionally, I give patients access to wholesale pricing for medications and laboratory testing so that there are no hidden costs to their care. All these services are included in a flat monthly rate so my patients can pay a reasonable and predictable price for their healthcare needs. This cost-conscious concierge model is called Direct Primary Care. I love it, my patients love it, and I think you will too."
