The healthcare system is a simple and easy system to navigate—said no one ever. Trying to understand the ever changing in-network versus out-of-network coverage, co-pays, and deductibles can be reasons enough to stay away from the doctor. Unfortunately, for many people, that means falling through the cracks, missing important preventative screenings, and kicking the can down the road when it comes to your health and wellness. More than 25% of people do not have a primary care provider and research shows that you are significantly more likely to die prematurely if you don’t see your primary care doctor regularly.
One big challenge is that traditional primary care often makes seeing your doctor a less than pleasant experience. Long wait times, rushed face-to-face time, poor access, and confusing invoices are just a few reasons that people usually put off their preventative and even sick care.
There is a better option. Direct primary care with AspireMD elevates your primary care experience, providing far more comprehensive and personalized healthcare with direct access to your doctor. All my patients enjoy 24/7 via texting or phone calls and all the time they need during their appointment. We offer thorough physicals that include advanced labs and imaging to help pave your road toward optimal health and longevity.
Feeling sick and not sure if you need to come in or take the day off from work? We are just a quick text away from getting you an answer and helping you continue on with your day. AspireMD uses a whole-person approach to identifying problems that arise, and we put tremendous emphasis on early intervention and lifestyle modification to prevent chronic disease and increase your longevity.
How does a primary care experience compare with the traditional hospital-owned and insurance-based care? Direct primary care eliminates barriers to quality patient care by putting decisions back into the doctor’s hands and using an affordable monthly subscription model instead of billing your insurance. Your healthspan is not something that should feel rushed, minimized or standardized, so make sure you find the right doctor to help you on your journey!
