Access to primary care is essential for all of us, as health is truly one of our best wealth. We can achieve & maintain good health by adopting a proactive approach. For example, having a check-up every year, regular maintenance visits, practice prevention, and taking care promptly of health problems before they become severe and costly.
Health insurance coverage should facilitate access to this type of care. However, in today's health system, we see that having insurance doesn't necessarily mean that obtaining medical care will be smooth and convenient. Also, many times because of the skyrocketing increase in monthly premiums, it is hard to find a feasible, affordable insurance option; therefore, many patients opt not to have insurance. Then something so simple as taking care promptly of our basic primary care needs becomes complicated, inconvenient, and stressful.
Because I understand the frustration & struggles that come with this situation, I chose to keep my services out of all insurance networks. I decided to create a different kind of doctor's office that serves patients who have insurance and also patients who don't have insurance. A place that will offer an honest, uncomplicated approach to primary care where patients could obtain direct care from the same doctor and have an idea of how much their care will cost upfront. I made one of my goals to make it easy and straightforward to schedule a visit, pay for the service, see the doctor, and not be worried about getting a surprise bill in the mail.
Your Family MD is a family-owned small business. I am continuously revising my services, improving them, and shaping them to serve my patients' needs better. I strive to provide my patients, to the best of my human abilities, with a down to earth: Convenient Care, No Long Waits, Continuity of Care, Price Transparency, Direct Attention, and a Stress-Free Experience. I firmly believe that Patients & their doctors can help make a difference in our healthcare.
A ccess to quality medical care by either virtual visits or in-office visits.
Our visits are by appointment only. My patient's time is valuable and I understand that they don't have time available to sit for hours in a crowded waiting room.
Getting to know each other takes time. Therefore it is important that patients keep their doctor even if their insurance changes.
I have heard many patients tell me that they didn't seek medical attention because they were afraid of the cost. For this reason, I provide prices that are transparent for patients to know ahead of time how much the service will cost.
Whether they need 20 mts or 1-hour consultation, their health is my Focus.
I want to ensure that they get enough direct attention and focus on addressing their medical needs.
I understand how stressful obtaining care could be within our insurance-based, traditional health system. For that reason, I don't accept any insurance for my professional services. Patients don't need to worry if their service will be cover or if I am within their insurance network. They simply schedule their visit, pay for their service, and see their doctor. I am continuously working on improving both the scheduling and consult's experience.
We do not work with any insurance.
We take care of patients of all ages; however, currently, we are unable to contract with patients on Medicare for the moment (this will change in the future).
Also, we are not health insurance, and we recommend all our patients to have
at least a high deductible insurance or health sharing.
If you need help finding insurance, we can direct you to a trusted insurance broker.
