Access to the doctor via cell phone, e-mail, and digital messaging
On-site lab draws at no cost.
On-site dispensing of a 7-day supply of medications for acute conditions at no additional cost to you
On-site immunizations at no cost.
This care is all provided at NO COST with no co-pay or deductible and works with your current health plan. No need for you to change plans— just your doctor.
Direct Primary Care services are provided by R-Health and Paladina Health.
