Direct Primary Care

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is just what the name says—a direct relationship between patient and physician without an insurance company in the middle.

Imagine: calling your doctor for an appointment at your convenience, not waiting hours at the office; not feeling anxious—because your doctor knows you; having enough time to bring up all of your concerns and later, being able to text your doctor directly to ask a follow-up question; plus, avoiding the frustrations of complicated insurance billing. This is what Abundant Life Concierge Medicine is all about.

In order to be a Member in my practice, you pay a monthly membership fee that covers all office visits, minor surgeries, limited vaccines, in-office testing and physicals with direct access me. Patients can also pay a fee for service option if you do not want to become a Member, but will not have direct access to me. There are no copays, deductibles or extra charges, and I do not bill your insurance company. (We can provide you with a statement that you can submit to your insurance company if they reimburse for out-of network care.)

Freedom from insurance companies means that I can care for you via email, Skype or phone if a face-to-face visit is not necessary. Regular office hours will be available, so we can accommodate all your primary care needs.

To be clear, you still need insurance for the large ticket items (hospitalizations, surgeries, MRI/CT, laboratory tests, etc.), but you don’t use it to see me.

Follow these Steps

STEP 1

Schedule your FREE 10-minute Phone Consultation to determine if you are eligible for concierge services.

STEP 2

Once you are approved, we will register you as a patient with our office.

STEP 3

We will email you a link to complete the patient intake paperwork through our Patient Portal.

STEP 4

Schedule your initial medical appointment with the doctor. This includes a physical, a lab draw, and discussion of your medical history.

The minimum is required to best learn about you and your healthcare needs. Both the joining fee and 6 months of membership are non-refundable but, after that, if a patient wants to leave the practice one month notification is all that is required. A convenient, automated online system is available for direct withdrawal from either your bank or a credit card.

Prior to joining you can request a free introductory visit with Dr. Nicole to discuss the Direct Primary Care model and see if this practice is a fit for you.

Testimonials

Dr. Edwards was thorough, kind, and a great listener. I am excited to be in her care. Especially since she emphasizes the natural, holistic route to overall health. Including mental health.

I am incredibly grateful for Dr. Nicole. She was able to see my daughter within a few hours of calling her on a Sunday! She maintains excellent communication and professionalism. I highly recommend Dr. Nicole!

J. Lynn

Dr. Edwards is one of the most down to earth Doctors that I’ve encountered in a very long time. She is so passionate in delivering me great patient care every time I come in to be seen. She takes pride in her skills and shows compassion every time I am seen by her. She shows excellent interpersonal skills and she ultimately makes me feel that I can literally trust her with my life. I would most definitely without a second doubt recommend her to everyone.
