Care Without Complications

Tate & Huston Integrative Wellness Center delivers affordable accessible healthcare through a Direct Primary Care (DPC) membership model. This removes the “middle man” (i.e. insurance companies) from the relationship between patient and provider. By doing so, there are no third-party insurance companies driving up costs or controlling providers’ medical decisions. Therefore the patient’s best interest is the number one priority – not the insurance companies or the government.

Empowering the patient-provider relationship is the key to achieving superior health outcomes, lower costs, and an enhanced patient experience.

Key Tenets of Direct Primary Care (DPC)

DPC fosters the patient-provider relationship by focusing on the following tenets:

Service icon


The hallmark of DPC is adequate time spent between patient and provider creating an enduring relationship. It enables unhurried interactions and discussions to assess lifestyle choices and treatment decisions aimed at long-term health and well-being. DPC practices have patient panel sizes small enough to support this commitment to service.
Choice icon

Patient Choice

Patients in DPC choose their own personal provider and active partners in their healthcare. Empowered by accurate information at the point of care, patients are fully involved in making their own medical and financial choices as the DPC patient will have transparency regarding pricing, access, and, availability of all services provided.
No Paperwork icon

No Fee-for-Service

The current system distorts healthcare decision-making by rewarding volume over value. This undermines the trust that supports the patient-provider relationship and rewards expensive and inappropriate testing/referrals/treatments. DPC replaces this with a simple flat monthly fee that covers comprehensive primary care services.
Stewardship icon


DPC providers believe that healthcare must provide more value to the patient and must be more patient-responsive and less expensive than the current system. The ultimate goal is health and well-being more simply the treatment of disease.

Frequently-Asked Questions

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.

DPC offers:

  • 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.

Can I choose DPC if I have existing health insurance?

Whether or not you currently have health insurance, we can accommodate your primary care needs here. The monthly service fee is your payment for ongoing primary care services offered by your provider. We strongly recommend that patients do have insurance for care that may be needed beyond what we offer (specialty care, ER or Hospitalizations, surgeries, etc.)
