Comparing Advanced Primary Care to a traditional medical practice

About Us

Having health insurance is not the same as having health care. 


At Advanced Primary Care, we are committed to providing outstanding patient care, without billing insurance.  Most of our patients have health insurance, but it is not required at our office.  Our practice is a membership model.  Your monthly membership includes a wide range of medical services, without any copays or additional fees. We also work incredibly hard to obtain affordable pricing for services that need to be handled outside our office. We share these wholesale prices with our patients, so that they can stop worrying about medical bills and focus on keeping themselves and their families healthy.  Direct Primary Care is for everyone.
