"At Elsayed Primary Care, we believe healthcare should be affordable, personal, and available to patients when they need it. Our goal is to provide excellent care to patients. We chose the Direct Primary Care model of practice because we believe it's the best way to achieve that goal. With the DPC model, you have a direct relationship with your doctor—no one in between. Insurance companies have no role in or authority over your care. The affordable monthly membership fee comes directly from you to your physician. We take no insurance company money, so our only duty is to our patients. Eliminating the costly overhead and time consuming administrative duties imposed by insurance companies allows us to take fewer patients than the typical primary care practice. This means our patients can see us when they need to, and we can spend the necessary time to know them and partner with them in developing personalized treatment plans. We believe this direct and accessible relationship leads to excellent care and the best outcomes for our patients."
