Why direct primary care (DPC) is a great option - even for insured patients

Are you tired of long wait times to see a doctor? Are you frustrated with the high cost of healthcare? Are you looking for a more personalized and holistic approach to your healthcare needs? If so, then Thurston Internal Medicine may be the perfect solution for you.

We believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality, affordable healthcare. That's why we offer DPC, a healthcare model that is gaining popularity among patients and providers alike. As an insured patient, you may be wondering why you should consider joining a DPC practice. Here are a few reasons why DPC may be the right choice for you:

  1. Quality of Care: We believe that every patient deserves individualized attention and care. Our DPC practice is designed to provide you with the time and attention you need from your doctor. With a smaller patient panel, your doctor can spend more time with you during each visit, leading to better health outcomes and a more satisfying patient experience.

  2. Cost Savings: While you have to pay a monthly fee to participate in our DPC practice, this fee is often much lower than the cost of traditional insurance premiums. Additionally, our DPC practice offers more cost-effective options for common healthcare needs, such as heavily discounted lab tests and prescription medications, which can help you save money in the long run.

  3. Convenience: With DPC, you will have direct access to your doctor, without the need for a referral. This can make it easier for you to get the care you need, when you need it. You'll also have the ability to schedule same or next day appointments for sick visits, and have extended visit times with your doctor if needed.

  4. Holistic Approach: Our DPC practice focuses on preventative care and wellness, which can help you maintain good health and avoid unnecessary medical interventions. Your doctor will work with you to develop a personalized care plan that addresses your unique needs and goals.

We believe that DPC is the future of healthcare. We are committed to providing our patients with high-quality, affordable care that is tailored to their individual needs. If you're an insured patient who is looking for a better healthcare experience, we invite you to join our DPC practice today.
