Direct Primary Care (DPC):

As a direct primary care provider, we focus on you and your health without the influence of unnecessary third-party restrictions. We see far fewer patients than a traditional insurance-based practice so we can provide you the best care possible.

Direct Primary Care uses a monthly direct pay, flat fee that is likely to cover 80-90% of the issues for which you will need to seek medical care, including: routine and preventative care; sick visits, weight loss management and chronic disease management.

In regular insurance policies, you pay for insurance brokers, intermediaries, expensive infrastructure, bureaucracy, advertising, and benefits for multiple shareholders.

These high costs make medical care inaccessible, and sometimes impossible to pay for many people; however most health care occurs in the primary care physician’s office, and is actually low cost.

With Direct Primary Care you only pay for the services you use, with no middle man, along with the quality of services, you won’t regret switching into our model.

With Direct Primary Care we are happy to see you regardless of whether you have insurance or not. However a membership with Advanced Optimal Healthcare is not meant to replace insurance. We do not provide emergency care, surgical services, hospital admission, or certain specialized care. While Dr. Ortiz's approach to holistic healthcare is meant to limit hospitalizations, you will still need insurance to cover catastrophic events and hospitalizations.
