What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care works a bit like a membership. Patients pay an annual flat fee that covers most of the procedures in the office. There are no additional fees or co-pays. This means patients are allowed an unlimited number of office visits, your time with Dr. Condon will not be rushed, and there are no wait times. With Direct Primary Care, you can see the doctor to improve and maintain your overall health, instead of only coming in when you're sick. Dr. Condon's goal is to give the best patient care he can provide. By eliminating insurance, decisions are back in the hands of the patient and the physician.
Direct Primary Care covers roughly 90% of your healthcare needs, and should be partnered with catastrophic insurance for major medical coverage.
If you are a small business owner, Direct Primary Care is an affordable way to provide healthcare to your employees.

Medicare will still cover all needs outside the office, including medications, imaging, specialists, emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and the like.
