Direct Primary Care (DPC) is the practice of delivering high-quality, physician-led care that is independent of traditional fee-for-service based insurance visits. The DPC practice framework includes any practice model structured around direct contracting with patients for monthly or annual fees which serve to replace the traditional system of third party insurance coverage for primary care services.
DPC practices typically charge patients a flat monthly or annual fee, under terms of a contract, in exchange for access to a broad range of primary care and medical administrative services. Participants would pay a monthly subscription fee covering most of the medical services that they will ever need, including preventative care and office visits for illnesses and minor injuries. This simplifies healthcare. Compared to traditional FFS Primary Care, patients find that DPC offers them a personalized doctor-patient relationship, comprehensive preventive care, and lower costs.
Transparent prices and no more unexpected bills. You know exactly what you are paying for every time you come in to see your doctor. No co-pays. No deductible. Just a flat monthly fee.
With visits that can last up to 60 mins, we can ensure that you will be able to address your needs with Dr. Conner. This allows you to get comfortable with your physician and establish the patient-doctor relationship you deserve.
Have a quick question in between visits? You will have access to our patient portal that allows you to ask questions and voice concerns over our secure messaging system.
Unlike traditional primary care, you can ensure that we prioritize your health if you deem it to be urgent. If you need a sick-visit, know that our office can schedule you to be seen within 24 hours.
Our in-office pharmacy allows patients to leave the office with their medication in hand. You can ensure that you are receiving your medicine for the best price.

It has been increasingly difficult to remain in network with insurance carriers and continue to provide the level of care that is important to you and us. We do not believe that insurance companies should dictate the quality of your medical care. Medical care should be affordable and accessibly. We have grown tired of third party decisions that drive patients away from getting the care they need. Dr. Conner wants to work with you, the patient, and you only.
You will still be able to see your primary care physician, however you will not be able to use your insurance. Instead you will be expected to pay for your visit in full ($118 in person/ $90 virtual) or you can enroll into our Wellness Program to receive exemplary primary care, for a monthly cost.
The Wellness Program is not an insurance plan and it its not meant to replace your current insurance plan. That said, you may be able to save money on your insurance. Since all routine care is covered by your membership, you can switch to a "high-deductible" health plan that costs less per month.
Traditional insurance plans show patients that the best time to get medical care is when you are sick. With the Wellness Program, we are trying to change that mindset of our patients. Going to see your doctor regularly is a great way to prevent illness down the road because you will be treating them before. The Wellness Program is both proactive and preventative.
