Welcome to Piedmont Direct Primary Care!

Piedmont DPC offers high-quality, patient-centered primary care for adolescents and adults of all races, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities, and belief systems. Our direct primary care model enables us to focus on the doctor-patient relationship. That means more face-to-face time with your physician, shorter wait times for appointments, and after-hours consultation for your questions and concerns, all for an affordable monthly fee.

What is direct primary care?

Direct primary care, or DPC, is a modernized approach to healthcare. Patients pay a fixed monthly membership fee for unlimited access to the services provided at Piedmont DPC. Because we do not bill insurance, we are free from insurance-related restrictions around care, such as costly copayments and limits on what can be covered during a visit. The membership model also enables practice size to stay small, allowing for same-day or next-day appointments and more face time with your doctor.
