Direct Primary Care (DPC) Chiropactor Syracuse

What is Direct Primary Care?

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative alternative payment model improving access to high functioning healthcare with a simple, flat, affordable membership fee.  This is a direct arrangement between your health care provider and you.  As a result, there are no fee-for-service payments or third party billing.  The defining element of DPC is an enduring and trusting relationship between a patient and his or her primary care provider.  Patients generally have extraordinary access to their physician, for less than the average cell phone bill, and physicians are accountable first and foremost their patients.  Therefore, DPC is embraced by health policymakers on the left and right and creates happy patients and happy doctors all over the country!

Why Direct Primary Care (DPC)?

With my first practice, I was In-Network with all the insurances and I would be paid for 30 minutes of treatments.  However, when I moved to New York, the insurances would no longer pay for the treatment I provided.  Furthermore, I began to realize how many hours a week I spent on the phone with insurance companies, or submitting appeals to get paid for what my patient’s needed.  There had to be a better way.  And that is when I found out about Direct Primary Care (DPC), a plan for treatment that decreased the cost to the patient while eliminating the overhead and middle men of insurance.  This seems to be the only feasible way to provide high quality care at a reasonable price.


Chiropractic care, the way it should be.

Better Health Outcomes

Patients achieve superior health outcomes with Direct Primary Care’s innovative service delivery.  DPCs provide better access to their provider, empower an authentic therapeutic relationship and comprehensive patient care. 

Lower Cost

Affordable, transparent costs based on a periodic overall flat rate fee.  Patients pay for their care directly to the physician.  No third parties or Fee for Service billing (“FFS”) to inflate costs.  All of which cost less than the average cell phone bill.

Enhanced Patient Experience

Patients receive unrestrictive access to their healthcare provider, report little to no wait time, and longer appointments (in person, virtually, or phone). In turn, creating a real therapeutic relationship between patient and provider.
