Practice Details:

"Dr. Paula Frantz is a Kansas native, with a bachelor's degree in elementary education, who used to milk cows on a dairy in central Kansas. She completed her pre-med requirements at Kansas State University, then set off for The Ohio State University, College of Medicine in Columbus, Ohio where she completed her MD. Her residency in Family Practice was completed at the University of Missouri, Kansas City, serving as Chief Resident her final year. She fulfilled a 2 year public health stint in Norwood and Naturita, CO, then moved to Sterling, CO. Since being in Sterling, she worked almost 8 years in the emergency department for Sterling Regional Med Center. She then spent almost 9 years with the Colorado Department of Corrections, five of which were as Chief Medical Officer, followed by three years at the Colorado Plains Physicians Practices clinic. She started Inspire Health Direct Primary Care, LLC in 2015 after she became frustrated with the hurry up approach of traditional medical clinics and the short sighted health care controlled by insurance companies. As Dr. Frantz progressed through her medical career, she began to question the increasing burden of meeting the demands of insurance companies and the government when these demands contributed nothing to the health of her patients. Yet these demands consumed precious time that could not be spent with patients. Dr. Frantz believes that teaching a patient about his or her health, discussing options for diagnosis and treatment, and coaching each patient as they make the health care decisions that are correct for them are the keys to maximizing health."

Clinic Details:

"Inspire Health Direct Primary Care offers comprehensive primary health care that is free of the hassles and hurried impersonal service that dominates in health care today. Enhanced access to your physician via same day or next day appointments, text, email, and cell phone is the foundation for Inspire Health. Appointments are unhurried and range in length from 30 minutes to one hour or longer if needed. Inspire Health Direct Primary Care does not accept any form of insurance, including Medicare. Services are provided to members who pay a monthly subscription fee. There are many benefits to joining Inspire Health Direct Primary Care, including comprehensive primary care, access to laboratory studies at cost, and access to many generic medications at 10% over cost. Each physician is limited to a small number of patients, usually one third to one fourth of the patients they might have in a traditional medical practice. Limiting the number of patients allows for personalized service, designed to meet your needs. Inspire Health Direct Primary Care is not insurance, but if you decide to join, you should talk with your insurance agent to see if membership in a direct primary care clinic will allow you to use a higher deductible insurance plan that is designed more for major medical or catastrophic health issues. This is especially true for employers who elect to purchase Inspire Health subscriptions for their employees."
