Direct Primary Care
DPC is an innovative healthcare model where physicians partner with their patients to provide primary care services under a flat, periodic membership fee. By moving outside of the administrative burdens of the traditional insurance-based billing system, DPC practices are able to provide a wide spectrum of care in a transparent, affordable manner.
Being truly well isn’t just feeling better. It’s functioning at your best. Holistic health means much more than simple symptom relief. That’s why when it comes to general medicine, we believe in medical care for the person as a whole and work to get to the root of the problem.
A Person-Centered Approach To Wellness
We take the time to listen to you and understand your needs carefully. We keep the whole person in focus in every aspect of our general medicine practice—from treating high blood pressure and diabetes to removing moles and bumps. We get to the bottom of “just not feeling right.”
Our hour-long wellness evaluation and half-hour follow-up visits (extendable when warranted), allow the time and space we need to fully utilize the expertise of our Board-Certified Family Medicine physicians instead of immediately referring new patients to outside specialists. When we do need to refer, we work with a comprehensive network of specialists including gastroenterologists, cardiologists, and neurologists.
MorningStar: Holistic Health For The Whole Family
At MorningStar, we serve patients age 8* and up, and work to meet your general medicine needs. Of course, we treat all illnesses as they present themselves, but we also focus on prevention. We work with you to help you not just avoid disease, but also to reach and maintain a state of wellness.
By looking at your labs with you, explaining what they mean, and discussing your nutrition, exercise, and health and body goals, we help you move from just getting by to being the best you can be. We also offer Foundations For Optimal Health, an in-depth 3-6 months intensive curriculum and coaching program for those ready to take the next steps to Optimal Health.
