Personalized Health Care The Way It Should Be

KCCU Community Focus

Public Radio Interview With Dr. Brian Birdwell

“Have you ever heard of Direct Primary Care ? It’s a little different from what most of us are used to when we visit the doctor. It’s actually based on care and not coverage. It’s a revolution in Primary Care. Dr. Brian Birdwell joins me in studio for an interview all about the topic of health care the way it should be.

Listen to Breanne Loving discuss health care the way it should be with Dr. Brian Birdwell on KCCU Public Radio Community Focus.

Health Care The Way It Should Be

Direct primary care clinic membership enables physicians to provide highly personalized health care the way it should be. Many young people say to Dr. Birdwell, “this is a progressive innovation!” While clinic members who are senior citizens say, “That’s no innovation. It’s the way health care used to be!”

“This is not football with a ticking clock. Direct primary care clinic membership is like baseball. You have all the time you need.” — Dr. Brian Birdwell of MainStreet Clinic

As the concept of direct primary care membership grows in awareness, many agree that it delivers personalized health care the way it should be now. The doctor is available promptly, typically same day or next day. Doctor visits are unhurried with plenty of time for the doctor to listen, and take into consideration each member’s own health care goals.

Since face-to-face doctor visits are not required for insurance reimbursement, doctor and member can have ongoing contact via personal communications, such as cell phone, text or email. Clinic members pay a flat monthly fee and in return, receive open access and attention to any pressing need. And on occasion, direct primary care doctors even make house calls.
