Ok, this is a lot of words. Stay with us and you won’t be disappointed.
In the traditional, insurance-based primary care clinic, doctors are financially incentivized to keep you sick and have you physically in their office as much as possible. Seriously. Not even kidding. How is this ok? It’s the reason visits are mere minutes long while the doctor stares at the computer, not you. It’s not their fault, the system mandates it. That same healthcare system is pleading for a new, efficient way to keep patients happy and healthy.
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is the answer. A monthly membership fee covers all primary care services such as preventative care, acute and chronic issues, minor procedures, casting, osteopathic manipulation, etc. Bloodwork, medications, and imaging are literally a fraction of the cost (up to 95% less expensive). The convenience and savings are astonishing for individuals, families, and small businesses alike. Run the numbers, they never lie.
At Strive Direct Health, primary care is affordable and accessible to everyone. We work obsessively to be the change we want to see in “The System” and are proud to be the only primary care clinic in Erie specifically designed with one sole purpose in mind: your health. Exactly the way it should be, right?
