I started Peak Health Direct Primary Care to spread the mission of improving health in our communities via a functional medicine driven holistic approach. We are dedicated to hearing about your goals and helping you achieve them. We strive for great outcomes so you can live the life you were meant to without the burdens of healthcare holding you back.
-Time: We spend time with you. We actively listen to you and are passionate about educating you on your health and how to improve it. Because of our model, we do not use insurance thus, we are not constrained to people we have never met telling us how long our appointments have to be.
-Accessible: We know you work hard and live a busy life. We want to offer you healthcare that is convenient and easy for you to access. We offer odd hours for when you get off of work and make it so that you can easily get in touch with us. We even offer text messaging as a mode of communication. Additionally, we offer video visits when you can't find the time to get out of the house.
-Affordable and equitable: We make our prices a low monthly fee so you don't have to tough out an illness worrying about a copay or a random bill you'll receive at home. We strive to make our prices transparent to you. We even include your standard labs in the annual physical, complimentary to you. Additionally, if you need additional labs or pathology we give them to you at or near cost. We do our best to discuss this with you before you get the labs so you can make the best decision for you and your family. Our lab costs are typically SIGNIFICANTLY lower than a typical lab billing. We believe this makes healthcare affordable and equitable. Don't have health insurance? No problem, we don't use insurance and most typically save money by using a DPC model instead of typical insurance fee-for-service.
-Technology: We offer a FREE monthly InBody 970 body composition scan as part of your membership at no extra cost to you. We do this so you can take full advantage of our technological offerings and track your progress while reaching your goals. The InBody 970 is a very consistent and reliable tool to help you track your body composition. Most athletes will be above the recommended BMI because a BMI is only taking your height and weight into consideration and not your muscle mass or fluid volume. The InBody 970 is the best from the InBody line of products and is a medical grade body composition scan. It can track your skeletal muscle mass breaking it down limb by limb including leg lean mass. Examine and track your fat loss by an abdominal obesity analysis via visceral fat area data. Know your Intracellular and extracellular water composition; so whether you're an athlete competing in a weight based tournament or are suffering from congestive heart failure, this data is key to helping you achieve your goals. Finally, obtain a comprehensive analysis of your basal metabolic rate so you can better understand how to plan your macronutrient and caloric needs to either build muscle, lose body fat or maintain your current build.
Peak Health DPC is bringing medicine back to what it was meant to be but with updated technology and a functional medicine driven approach, providing you easy access to primary care services and optimizing your health to reach your Peak Health. This is Peak Health Direct Primary Care.
