Central Florida concierge medical office explains the benefits of using a direct primary care model
From the Seminole County Regional Chamber of Commerce
Nostalgia Family Medicine and Wellness Center in Longwood, Florida announces their newest online guide located at https://nostalgiamed.com/benefits-of-direct-primary-care/. This online guide discusses the benefits of using a direct primary care (DPC) doctor.
Dr. Brandon Fletcher, President, and CEO of Nostalgia Family Medicine stated, “Oftentimes, patients are unaware of the costs of a traditional insurance plan compared to the costs of direct primary care type of plan. For example, a monthly premium for traditional insurance may cost anywhere from $200 to $1200 while our cost is $100 to $200. Many insurance plans also require a co-pay while we do not. We have an in-house pharmacy for basic medications as well as offering specialty cash pricing for labs and radiology.”
In the case of Nostalgia Family Medicine and Wellness Center their direct primary care approach also includes tele-med services (telephone medical consultations) house calls, upfront pricing, and same day or next day appointments. Patients are encouraged to spend as long as they like during their appointment and are never rushed out. Dr. Fletcher offers telemedicine appointments for those who cannot physically come into his office. Those appointments are available by phone, text, email, or video chat up until 10pm each evening. In the DPC model at Nostalgia Family Medicine and Wellness Center, there is no insurance accepted so there is no need for pre-approval, no denials, and no unnecessary testing. Adjunct therapies that are also offered in their office include BEMER, Botox and fillers, IV nutraceuticals, and medical marijuana evaluations.

For existing patients, the cost of a medical cannabis certification is $149.99. This cost includes an evaluation good for up to 210 days.
