Direct Primary Care Q & A

What is direct primary care?

Direct primary care (DPC) is a model of health care that provides patients with timely, convenient, and unlimited access to high-quality primary care services. DPC is an alternative to the traditional fee-for-service model of health care. With DPC, patients gain access to high-quality health care through a simple, affordable membership. 

Direct primary care is based on a strong doctor-patient relationship that allows for personalized care for each patient. At Seacrest Medical Group the multilingual team provides comprehensive patient care and same-day appointments to help you fit your health care needs into your schedule.
