First Primary Care Brings Membership-Based Healthcare Model to the Woodlands
First Primary Care has opened a membership-based, direct primary care practice in The Woodlands where individuals, families and employers enjoy unrestricted, direct access to a primary care physician, same-day appointments for illnesses and injuries, wellness care and chronic disease management at rates starting at $100 per month.
Located at 25144 Grogans Park Drive, the membership-based, concierge-style practice provides high-end, affordable healthcare without insurance hassles, copays or additional fees.
Patients also can text, call, send photos and video chat with their First Primary Care physician through a secure message app, often eliminating the need for a patient to see the doctor.
“Every one of my patients has my cell phone number,” says Dr. Thi Vo, a physician with First Primary Care in The Woodlands. “It’s like having a doctor in the family.”
Vo adds the smaller practice size allows for same-day appointments, more time for patient care and no wait times.
“We’ll typically see up to three patients a day whereas the typical primary care practice will see 20 - 30 a day,” Vo says.
As a primary care practice, First Primary Care physicians treat individuals in all stages of life, from pediatrics to geriatric care. Patients are recommended to specialists on an as-needed basis.
Memberships also are available for small businesses which provide employees with direct, personal access to a First Primary Care physician for a low monthly fee. Plus, its physicians can come to the workplace to care for a company’s employees on a regular basis at no additional cost. Having a physician visit the workplace, says Vo, allows employees to refill prescriptions, have blood work completed for diabetes management, get flu shots and other forms of care without spending time away from work.
Three additional physicians are expected to be added to First Primary Care in The Woodlands as the practice grows, Vo adds.
