Our practice is a new way of providing primary care that's based on a monthly membership subscription. It is for everybody who values quality time with their doctor (in person, or virtually) More times than not, these visits cost a lot less than most monthly bills. The value is a doctor who gets to know you, your child and entire family because of the slower pace, and deeper connections made during the visit. You can see your doctor as many times as you want during the month, for up to 60 minutes if need be, and if you don't need to, you still pay your monthly membership because there will be those months when you will.
IT'S LIKE NETFLIX OR A GYM MEMBERSHIP FOR YOUR DOCTOR!
