Access to primary care is essential for everyone's lives, as health is truly one of our best wealth. If we are healthy, then we are more productive, happier, and live a longer life. We can achieve & maintain good health by adopting both a proactive and reactive approach to our health, for example, having a check-up every year, regular maintenance visits, practice prevention, and promptly taking care of health problems before they become severe and costly.
Health insurance coverage should facilitate access to this type of care to help people remain healthy. 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 option. Then something so simple, yet essential, as taking care promptly of our basic primary care needs have become complicated, inconvenient, and stressful.
I understand the frustration that comes with this, from a doctor and a patient's point of view. That is why I chose not to accept insurance and decided to create a different kind of doctor's office that offered an honest, uncomplicated, professional approach to primary care that would serve patients who have and who don't have insurance.
I want to help people fit in primary care into their lives because the truth is that we all have busy lives and don't have spare time to spend hours in a doctor's waiting room. 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. As the name emphasizes, I want patients to have and keep their personal family doctor. I am continuously revising my services, trying to improve them, and shaping them to better serve my patient's needs. I strive to provide my patients, to the best of my human abilities with a down to earth:
If you are looking for a different experience in primary care, and this resonates with your life, I invite you to allow me the opportunity to be your primary doctor. I firmly believe that Patients & their Doctors, together, can help make a difference in primary care.
I offer access 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.
To give them the best possible care, I limited the total number of patients I see daily. 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 (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.
