Modern Medicine with Old-Fashioned Care
Personalized, accessible, affordable
Direct Primary Care provides healthcare you deserve, at a price you can afford.
Dr. Cynthia Villacis believes that people should have access to healthcare that is accessible and affordable; where they can work on their health with a trusted parter who knows and cares about them, get more than a brief 10 minute visit, and not feel lost in an impersonal system. At Health Connections Direct Primary Care, we offer 30 minute same/next day appointments in a monthly membership model so you are able to get your primary care needs met, predict your expenses, and have a physician advocate who will help you navigate the complex healthcare system.
Direct Primary Care is…
Work with a doctor who knows and cares about you as an individual. By limiting patient panels to <600 people (instead of having around 3000), we can focus on meeting your needs.
Just $30-75/month without additional per visit charges covers your primary care office visits, in-office tests and procedures, texting and telemedicine visits. We have negotiated lab prices to save you money – most are around $5 each – and you know the price ahead of time.
After hours support is available for urgent problems that can’t wait until the next business day. If you have a true emergency go to the ER 1st, and call us from there so we can help coordinate your follow-up care.
Same or next business day appointments mean that you can get help when you need it. Texting and Telemedicine mean you can get it where you want it.
We schedule 1 hour for new patient visits and 30 minutes for follow-up visits. This gives us time to actually listen to what your concerns are and answer your questions and not just prescribe another pill or order a referral.
Scheduling this way also makes for minimal wait – you spend your time with the doctor – not in the waiting room!
As an independent practice, we refer to testing facilities and specialists where we think your needs will be best met – not where a hospital system tells us to send you. We consistently look for how to increase value for our patients, while saving them money.
