Direct Primary Care or DPC, is a new model of healthcare that puts the focus back on the Patient-Doctor Relationship by removing the middlemen aka insurance companies. DPC providers spend more time dealing directly with their patients than doing anything else – as it should be!
DPC allows physicians to reduce overhead costs and insurance burdens. This allows your doctor to be able to return your texts or have a video chat with you, less wait time, longer relaxed appointments, same day appointments, wholesale pricing passed on to you for labs and imaging. DPC has been shown to have improved clinical outcomes and save patients money.
In addition to our centralized focus on your entire well-being, our providers have a combined 44 + years of experience in family and emergency medicine. Living and practicing medicine in the Boerne area for 14+ years has fostered our long-standing relationships with the most knowledgeable and skilled specialists in the in the Hill Country and San Antonio areas. When you walk through the doors of our remodeled 19th Century farmhouse, you will see and feel the DIFFERENCE!
