I appreciate the new patients coming into the practice. Welcome and thank you to both the Wedge for Health Freedom and Samaritan Ministries and other faith-based medi-share programs for redirecting patients here. I look forward to working with you for cost effective better medical care and better health.
I even hesitate to do this as the information and recommendations are changing almost hourly on this pandemic. During this heightened period of time, I felt it was important to reassure my patients that I am committed to delivering the best and most effective care for them during this time.
First I would like all to realize while this appears to be a highly contagious infection, it is not very virulent, in other words not very lethal. Of all the current deaths worldwide, not one has occurred in a patient under the age of 20 and in general, most patients under 10 years of age are virtually asymptomatic if they do contract the disease.
Symptoms are very general with fever, aches, fatigue and cough. Similar to many other viral illnesses.

We are looking into additional resources and testing. For now if questions either email or call.
Direct Primary Care is an innovative primary care model being embraced by patients, physicians, employers, payers and policymakers across the United States.The defining element of DPC is an enduring and trusting relationship between a patient and his or her primary care physician. In DPC unwanted fee-for-service incentives are replaced with a simple direct bill for that day's service. This empowers the doctor-patient relationship and is the key to achieving superior health outcomes, lower costs and an enhanced patient experience.
