What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a new type of membership practice in which the patient has a close relationship with their physician. That is why our initial get-acquainted visits are up to an hour long, and follow-up visits are up to 30-60 minutes.
You will enjoy exceptional access not only through office visits, but also via texts, phone, email, or even video. The focus is on having a strong relationship between physician and patient. We carefully limit the number of patients assigned to each physician to make sure that we can be available when you need us and spend the time necessary to provide you with personal care. In traditional practices, each physician may be assigned as many as 2500-3000 patients. At Main Street Family Medicine, we prefer to limit our practice to about a third of that number. This means your physician will know you personally and be able to work with you to tailor your care to what you need as a unique individual.
