Our Approach


What is Direct Primary Care?

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative alternative payment model improving access to healthcare with a flat, affordable membership fee. No fee-for-service payments. No third party billing. 

The defining element of DPC is an enduring and trusting relationship between a patient and his or her primary care provider. This innovative model transforms the way we practice medicine by allowing us to prioritize our relationship with our patients -- the way healthcare is meant to be. 

We believe you and your doctor, not your insurance company, should make decisions on what is best for your health.


Direct Primary Care removes obstacles that prevent us from focusing on your overall well being.

Patients achieve superior health outcomes with Direct Primary Care's innovative service delivery. Because the direct care physician has a smaller patient panel, they are able to spend more time with each patient and problems are addressed sooner. DPCs provide better access to physicians, empower an authentic therapeutic relationship, and comprehensive patient care.  

This DPC model provides affordable, transparent costs based on a periodic overall flat rate (i.e. membership).  Patients pay for their care directly to the Torrey Pines Direct Primary Care.  No third parties or Fee for Service billing.

Patients receive old-school access to their healthcare provider, have little wait time for an appointment and we take the time to answer all your questions and concerns.  We want to get to know you and go over your history and provide a comprehensive look at your medical needs.
