What is DirectCare.MD?
DirectCare.MD is Rockford's premier direct primary care medical practice. It is family health care that is immediate, thorough, comprehensive, specific, affordable, and very, very personal.

Is Concierge Medicine the Same as Direct Primary Care?
The terms are often used interchangeably and essentially refer to the same thing. Direct primary care is a healthcare model focused on putting the patient first. That means treating them when they need to be treated, never rushing patients through appointments, and being proactive with healthcare treatment plans. The doctor-patient relationship is just as our name suggests – direct. Direct primary care clinics don’t accept insurance, rather they choose to work directly with the patient, providing them wholesale labs, xray, and prescription prices along the way.

What sets DirectCare.MD apart from other practices?
We have eliminated the bureaucracy. We have shredded red tape. In refusing to recognize any interference with the sanctity of the patient/physician relationship, we have returned family practice medicine to its root values of clinical excellence for and compassionate knowledge of every patient. In every aspect of family health care, and custom health care, we promise accessibility, convenience, and affordability.

Will I still benefit from DirectCare.MD even if I don’t require frequent medical attention?
Of course. We might argue that everyone benefits from a service tailored directly to them. That’s why we offer custom health care. Our practice is devoted to the maintenance of your good health, to the enhancements of your daily experience that only physical well-being can bring.

In wellness and therapeutic care alike, DirectCare.MD's great ally is time. Large amounts of precious, irretrievable time given to you as you wish. Every visit, for whatever reason, will be easy-going in its absolute thoroughness, relaxed in answering your questions and addressing the needs of the moment. Then, as the months and years go by, we’ll build a comprehensive, intimate knowledge of your health, an invaluable understanding that is not available in any other regimen of care.

Does DirectCare.MD accept health insurance?
No. Thank goodness, no.

Perhaps the most critical distinction in our model of care centers on a direct, personal relationship between you and your doctor. That directness carries over to our business model as well. While the tender mercies of an insurance company might apply to the fixing of a damaged fender on your automobile, we see no reason for any insurer to have a voice about either the quality or the cost of your family’s health care.

We forgo insurance payments in order to save our patients from the arbitrary, intrusive decisions that inevitably follow with third-party payers. Furthermore, this direct fee-for-services arrangement frees us from the typical contractual agreements that prevent physicians from offering wholesale prices on laboratory tests, imaging, and medications.

As a patient of DirectCare.MD, will I still need health insurance?
Yes. We recommend that our clients continue to carry both a major medical plan and a health savings account, thereby ensuring financial help should hospitalization or referral to a specialist be necessary.
