Our Philosophy of Care
Optimal health is much more than the absence of illness. It is also the active pursuit of the highest qualities of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the human experience.
We believe the most effective form of healthcare treats a patient’s body, mind, and spirit while, at the same time, educating them to take personal responsibility for their health. We obviously want to prevent and treat disease, and one way we achieve that is by helping patients create and maintain optimal health.
We receive a number of questions about our Direct Primary Care (DPC) model of health care. Some of the most common ones are below. If you have a question and do not see the answer below, please get in touch with us using the form on our Contact Us page.
Why choose DPC as your primary care option?
DPC is a personalized comprehensive primary care for an affordable monthly rate. It is a care option that eliminates the corporate medical systems that do not put patients first.
- Healthcare by a monthly subscription
- A closer relationship with your provider
- Access to your medical team by text, email, phones-including after hours
- Same day or next day appointment scheduling
- We keep costs low and spend as much time as needed with our patients
- Elimination of the corporate medical system
What does my DPC membership include?
The monthly subscription covers personalized primary care through office visits, annual wellness exams, well child exams, sports physicals, school physicals, basic office procedures, office injections, basic labs, one complimentary IV Therapy per calendar year, 24/7/365 access to our office, and availability of same day or next day appointments.
Will I benefit from Tate & Huston Integrative Wellness Center if I don’t require frequent medical attention?
Yes! Unfortunately, most medical care has become very reactionary, a response to symptoms or being sick. While we always provide sick care for our patients, we place utmost importance on being proactive and creating plans for staying healthy. Certainly, everyone benefits from healthcare tailored to them. The current healthcare model encourages you NOT to seek care until you are really sick, but at Tate & Huston Integrative Wellness Center you can seek care at any time, preferably sooner rather than later. We can actually prevent things from happening instead of waiting for them to happen and then treating them. You can simply call us, ask a quick question via text, or schedule an urgent visit. Over time, we will have comprehensive knowledge about you and your individual health, and if you do end up needing more frequent medical attention, we will know all about your needs and how to treat you best. This cannot be said for any other healthcare model, and this is why Direct Primary Care is the model for now and the future.
