Dr. Dorrego approaches the practice of medicine the old fashioned way, as a relationship between the patient and the doctor. With our reasonably priced subscription based model, you pay a monthly membership fee just like you would when you join a gym or any other membership based service. So rather than dealing with complicated insurance forms and rules, you deal directly with your doctor for a simple manageable experience.
After years of working for hospital corportation both in the hospital and in hospital owned practices, Dr. Dorrego started looking for a better way to serve paitence than the typical fee for service, insurance driven model that alocates about 10 minutes with each paitent. When he found the direct primary care model (DCP), he spent time researching it and learning all he could about how it worked. He quickly realized he wanted to step out of the world of corporation owned medicine and open a practice that was about the relationship between the doctor and paitent. He knew this model would benefit his patients by providing substantial savings and a greater degree of access to, and time with him as their physician. DPC allows him to care for the whole person while reducing the overhead and negative incentives associated with fee-for-service third-party-payer billing.
