What is Important to You?
At Boonsboro Direct Primary Care, we believe one of the most important things we can do is listen. We want to know what is important to you, what’s on your mind. We believe that we can’t really give you the physical care you need unless we first listen to you.

In the midst of the beginning of a career in pharmaceutical advertising and high-level management and living a very active lifestyle with her husband, her husband became injured. At the age of 27 it was suggested over and over again that he was in need of a knee replacement. Unwilling to accept the diagnosis, Dianne began a two-year in-depth study of alternative treatment. As she began working with her husband, she watched him regain full mobility and use never having gone through surgery. To date, her husband remains active and surgery free. The thought of so many others going through similar situations and not having options is what propelled her into her medical journey. Her desire continues to be to provide patients with options and work with her patients to find the right path for each individual patient.
