We are Stillwater's first Direct Primary Care clinic.
But what exactly is Direct Primary Care?
According to the Direct Primary Care Coalition ( https://www.dpcare.org/about1-ccz5 ):
"Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an
innovative alternative payment model for primary care being embraced by
patients, physicians, employers, payers and policymakers across the
United States.The defining element of DPC is an enduring and trusting
relationship between a patient and his or her primary care provider".
The way we achieve this trusting relationship is by affording adequate appointment times in an unhurried environment, in order to have the freedom to truly listen to our patient's concerns. In fact, we limit our enrollment numbers in order to assure patients are seen in a timely manner and receive the time and attention necessary for sound healthcare decisions.
