What’s Wrong With Healthcare Today?

Spiraling healthcare costs have been a grave concern for many for the last 10-20 years.  More than half of Americans have some type of chronic disease which consumes 86% of the exorbitant $3.2 trillion spent each year on care.  As a population, far too many are getting sicker – not healthier. 

Even though nearly every dollar individuals and families spend on health care goes through some type of insurance disguised as premiums, deductibles, coinsurance, and co-pays, our healthcare system isn’t working to lower the cost of care.  Doctors are required to bill your insurance in order to get reimbursed for the services they perform. Procedures, treatments, and office visits are often billed at outrageously high, hyper-inflated, “network” rates all prearranged by the insurance companies. When you use your insurance, there’s no way to control out of pocket costs or know the cost of care in advance. 

Limited appointment times, strict office visits policies, no access to care outside the office, brief face-to-face interactions, and astronomically high costs have eroded the value of a close, personal, doctor – patient relationship.  First Primary Care fixes what’s wrong with healthcare by giving individuals and employers a way to engage directly – without the hassle of a broken, insurance-based, system.

Why Healthcare Works Better With Direct Primary Care?

Direct primary care is often a better alternative to insurance-based, fee-for-service, primary care, specialty care, and urgent care.  

Direct primary care physicians charge a monthly or annual fee, and in return, patients receive all or most primary care and urgent services for free or deeply discounted wholesale rates.  This includes most in-office procedures, labs, imaging, specialty care coordination, and individual case management.  If labs cost $300 when using insurance, they are typically slashed to $35 when you go through a direct primary care provider.

Direct primary care patients enjoy communicating with their doctor unhampered by short prescribed time limits and ridged office visit requirements.  They can reach their physician during and outside of normal business hours by phone, text, secure app, e-mail, or video chat.  Simple, convenient, engaged healthcare delivered without the hassles of insurance.

Testimonials

As a nurse of 25 years, I am very picky about my Doctor. I will not see just anyone, and until I moved from Ohio, I had always known my Doctor personally or was able to get a recommendation from a colleague when I needed to see a specialist.

Coming from the traditional insurance model, the concept of direct primary care was very foreign to me – I had nothing to compare it to.

But after being a member of First Primary Care, I will never go back to traditional medicine. First Primary Care has a very personal approach, and I feel like you have taken the time to get to know me and my specific needs and issues.  I like that you do the research when I need specialized care and get me not only the best price but also quality care.   

Even with my background, I have never had a Doctor’s office give the time and care that you have.  I feel cared for and that I am not just a file.  When my blood and iron levels were low, you called to check on me frequently, and it is so refreshing to know that you care how I’m doing.   When I needed more protein, you went out and bought three vegan protein shakes and taste tested them so you could recommend the best one.

You’re always willing to research things that only pertain to me and my case (like when I want to try an herbal remedy!).  And I love that I don’t have to make a trip to the office for every little thing. I’ve never seen anything like it. Thank you for such awesome care of me and my family.

I love Peter Del Buono’s bedside/phone manner. He is the BEST!!  I have recommended and will continue to recommend First Primary Care, because of all the above reasons.

I am so happy to be a patient of Dr. Goyal and his team. They make me feel valued and welcome and it’s a completely different experience from standard insurance based medical care. I love that they are so accessible to me. I’m just having to adjust my thinking since so many of the things I used to pay for out of pocket are included in my plan with them – what a welcome change!

Kim Balducci

First Primary Care has provided consistent and high quality care from day one. The doctors listen to your concerns, ask questions, and make sure the underlying reasons for your concerns or symptoms are diagnosed and treated. They really care about the health and well-being of their patients – even after the appointment is over. They are readily available and make getting well and staying healthy more convenient than ever. Would highly recommend!

Sarah Weller

No BS, this is the real deal. These people know and love what they do. They treat me like family. I can always reach them. They are always responsive and take care of me, no matter if I’m at home or away on business. Their clinic is quaint and comfy. I trust them with my life and my health, you should too.

While camping in Fredericksburg, Texas, over Valentines weekend, Dr. Goyal and First Primary Care was a lifesaver. By having First Primary Care on speed dial, I was able to avoid a 15 minute commute into downtown Fredericksburg and any additional waiting time to have access to a physician. In less than 5 minutes, after speaking with Dr. Goyal, I was able to pick up my medication at the nearest pharmacy and by Sunday morning, I was feeling much better. I am glad I found a doctor’s office that is worth keeping. THANK YOU DR. GOYAL!!!
