Direct primary care allows our patients to make direct health care decisions with our best family doctors in Charlotte, NC.
A strong doctor-patient relationship is essential to this process. As the methods of health care delivery have evolved, barriers have developed that interfere with the doctor-patient relationship and shift choice away from the patient and the doctor to third parties–middlemen.
Over the years the HMOs, insurance companies, and hospital systems have increasingly insinuated themselves and their needs and agendas between the doctor and the patient. Inadvertently, these changes have increased costs, distracted the physician, and deprived the patient of choices for their own health management.
Direct primary care practice is the best solution offered by our family doctors in Charlotte, NC. By removing the middlemen as much as possible, comprehensive, and truly patient-centered primary health care is affordable, transparent, and confidential. Removing middlemen requires that a DPC practice not participate with or bill a third party. We do not bill insurance. Participating with insurance plans dramatically increases the overhead for a medical clinic which gets passed on to the patient. We have eliminated that overhead expense and passed the savings on to you instead.

Do I still need insurance?
While a DPC membership at The Art of Medicine Direct meets your best direct primary care needs in Charlotte, insurance is still necessary for expensive medical needs beyond the scope of primary care like hospitalization, surgery, or emergencies.
