Our local newspapers were reporting the impending loss of safety net supports that sustained many people in the Portland area through the early stages of the pandemic.
Many people were furloughed from their jobs or lost health insurance coverage for other reasons. For those without insurance, health care may soon become inaccessible. Direct primary care is a way to maintain access to all the essential elements of your health care.
For those who live in the greater Portland area, I am available to visit you in your homes, at work, or in my office on Spring Street in Scarborough. Working together to build on a foundation of listening, trust, and understanding, we can manage nearly 100% of your acute and chronic care needs together.
What’s more, a membership in my direct primary care practice gains you access to medications and refills at wholesale prices, as well as deep discounts on lab and radiology services. Your monthly membership fee covers unlimited office visits for many services like wellness exams and minor surgeries.
What a relief to know that your doctor is but a phone call or text message away, ready and eager to support your physical and mental health, on your time and when it is convenient for you.
