In the U.S., people demand transparency of most industries when it comes to buying goods or services and understanding how much it’s going to cost. With healthcare, however, the system is really hard for consumers to understand and they struggle with it.

Did you know a traditional doctor’s office spends more than 70 percent of its funding on handling administrative matters? Filing paperwork and trying to collect payment from insurance companies continues to carve away at a doctor’s time, which should be spent caring for patients.
As a direct primary care physician who runs my own practice at Fishers Direct Family Care, I believe I’ve found the best way to deliver high-quality patient care.

A physician who follows the direct primary care model operates differently than a traditional family doctor, and educating patients about those differences becomes paramount to building a successful DPC practice.
