About Health Connections Direct Primary Care
Dr. Villacis opened Health Connections Direct Primary Care in August 2017 in Crestview Hills, KY. As a family practice office, we treat patients from birth to 64 years old and provide outpatient family medicine care. She started Health Connections 15 years after residency – after having spent most of her career delivering primary care in Community Health Centers, as well as practicing addiction medicine, urgent care, and teaching medical students and residents.
At Health Connections we believe that people should be able to get primary care where they can work with a trusted parter on their health, and not be cut off after 10 minutes and 1 problem, or get lost in an impersonal system. We also believe that this level of care should be available regardless of insurance or immigration status.
By developing a direct pay model with patients and not being dependent on insurance companies, we are able to focus on providing quality, personalized care that 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!
Dr. Villacis has spoken Spanish as a second language since 1988 and is able to provide medical care to patients in either Spanish or English. If patients need to see a specialist and prefer a physician who speaks Spanish, she makes every attempt to make this happen. However, as a Family Physician she is able to address more than 80% of patient problems at Health Connections without the need to send people elsewhere for care.
