What is Direct Primary Care?

Direct Primary Care is a model in which the patient pays their provider/the practice directly on a recurring basis, under terms of a contract, for a defined set of primary care services.

As a direct primary care provider, we focus on you and your health without third party restrictions. We see far fewer patients than a traditional insurance-based practice so we can provide you the best care possible.

Our patient benefits include full access to care without barriers. You will have more time with your doctor, 24/7 access, no co-pays, and no limit on visits. This includes physicals, pediatric care, wellness education, chronic disease management, simple procedures, and more. Check out our full description of benefits below.

Benefits of Membership

Unlimited office visits

Wake up sick? Have a sick child? Typically same day or next day sick appointments are available.

24/7 communication

Contact us many ways - email, text, by phone, and in-person. You are part of the family.

Save big on labs and medication

We have negotiated wholesale rates on medication and lab tests, and we pass all those savings straight to you.

Comprehensive care

We offer high-quality care to kids, adults, and geriatric patients. This includes chronic disease management (diabetes, high blood pressure, etc), well child visits, urgent care, sports medicine, healthy lifestyle changes, well woman exams and annual physicals. We also offer functional medicine visits at an additional fee with a referral from your Mulberry Primary Care Clinician.

Office visits when you want them. With no fees.

Need a visit? Have a sick child? We can usually get you a next-day or same-day appointment, for no extra charge.

Extended time with the doctor

Appointments range from 20 minutes up to 90 minutes. Good healthcare takes time.

Minor labs and procedures

For example, EKGs, hearing and vision screenings, and spirometry tests are all included in your membership fee. If there is an extra charge for a service, you will know before proceeding. There are special labs and procedures that may require an additional fee. Our members receive a discounted price for these special labs and procedures.

Coordination with specialists

If you require a consultant for specialty medical care, we will work closely with that specialist.

Greatly discounted medications

We dispense medications in-house, so we are offering medications to you at discount prices. For nearly all medications, the price we offer is cheaper than your co-pay at a pharmacy. If you take chronic medications, the savings on medication might be greater than your entire membership fee.

Greatly discounted labwork

We have negotiated great deals with national labs to get your tests done on the cheap. An annual $70 lab allowance for adults is included in your membership fee. You will receive a discounted price on any additional yearly labs your provider requests.
