The Difference is Clear

What question would you have asked at your last appointment if you had more than 9 minutes with the doctor? Dr. Anderson spends an average of 37 minutes with his patients. That’s 28 minutes longer than the 9 minutes patients spend with a doctor in a typical practice.

Membership has Benefits
The concept of “members only” access may seem new to medicine, but it’s a tried and true system. People have been subscribing to the Y, gyms, diet systems, swim, tennis and golf memberships and more for generations. Access is limited to members so that those who belong to the organization are able to fully benefit from membership.

“Date of Birth, Insurance and ID, please”

That’s the greeting most patients receive when they arrive for their appointment at their doctor’s office. Oh, then there’s the payment of the co-pay before the patient is directed to the waiting room where they will sit until called into the inner sanctum of the office by a nurse or technician.

Does your doctor’s waiting room have a sign that instructs patients to tell the receptionist if they have been waiting for more than 30 minutes? That’s because they expect that you will wait about 30 minutes from when you check in until you are called for your appointment.

Boonsboro Direct Primary Care only schedules one patient at a time so there is no waiting and so that patients are not exposed to other patients who may be ill while at his office. 

We know our patients so there’s no need to look them up in a database by their date of birth or ID. And, because the practice is a subscription-based model, there’s no insurance and no co-pays.

Patients with Direct Access tend to Address Concerns Right Away

Have you ever put off contacting your doctor about something that was concerning you because of the “hassle factor” of dealing with their office? Do you often have to choose between waiting long periods of time to see your personal provider or settling for seeing a provider you don’t know?

When you can see your own doctor when you need care, you get better care because you are working with someone who knows you and your health history. When you have access to information or medical care for any concern you may have, you get better care because you can address concerns in real time and possibly avoid more serious conditions as time passes.
