The most recent McKinsey & Company Consumer Health Insight Survey showed consumers would actually visit their doctor more if they knew what it would cost, knew that their doctor cared about them as a person by spending more one-on-one time with them, and if scheduling appointments was quicker with shorter wait times. Direct Primary Care has grown by leaps and bounds across the county (10-fold in the last 5 years) and now is gaining traction in Iowa.

Come explore if Direct Primary Care might be a good fit for you or your company.
