Cynthia Villacis, MD
I opened Health Connections to provide personalized, accessible, affordable primary care outside of insurance so that I can spend more time to work with you towards your health goals. By having you pay us directly and not being dependent on insurance companies, we are able to focus on what you need and want – instead of what the insurance companies think you should have. The person who pays the bill is the primary customer – and in our office this means you!
At Health Connections Direct Primary Care, we believe that you should be able to work with a doctor you know and trust, and be able to have access to that doctor when you need them. We also believe that this level of care should be available regardless of insurance or immigration status.
I believe in the mind-body connection and feel that it is important to talk with patients about their mental and spiritual health as well as their physical health. I take a collaborative approach with other medical professionals and am comfortable working with patients who include other treatment modalities such as chiropractic care and acupuncture. I encourage many of my patients to work with a counselor to learn
behavioral therapy to improve their mental health.

I live in Northern Kentucky with my husband and daughter and have a son in college. I enjoy kayaking, swimming, listening to music and spending time with my family and dogs. I love trying different things and have gone backpacking in the Smokies, canoe camping in the Boundary Waters, and scuba diving in Florida. I encourage people to stay physically active and explore the world around them – no matter what their size is while they work towards improving their health.
