“Direct Care, an innovative new model of primary care delivery, puts physicians back in control of patient care. It is medicine the way it should be.”
When she heard about R-Health, Michelle was excited but she also kept thinking there had to be a catch. Once the Ewing office opened, she realized there really was no catch and she was astounded by the level of care she received from her R-Health doctor and the rest of her team.
“R-Health is a far superior doctor’s office,” said Michelle. “My R-Health doctor helps me manage everything related to my health. She calls me just to answer my questions and I can e-mail with her anytime. It feels great to know that I have access and can just keep in touch on the little things.”
Michelle also likes that she doesn’t have to try to remember everything that her doctor tells her during each appointment. She can access a full overview of everything discussed at her appointment through the electronic patient portal and if she still has follow up questions, she just e-mails or calls her doctor to review.
Says Michelle, “It’s refreshing that I don’t have to keep track of everything on my own.” One of Michelle’s favorite aspects of her R-Health doctor’s office is the ability to get her blood work done onsite, saying, “It’s so nice to have everything done in one place.”
With R-Health, Michelle feels like she has her own concierge doctor, but without the added access fees, and of course, with no co-pays. “I used to wait hours to see my doctor and I felt like my time wasn’t as important as theirs. With R-Health, I never wait more than 5 or 10 minutes to see my doctor – it’s a miracle.”
