Welcome to Cornerstone Family Medicine with Direct Care

About Us

Compassionate Healthcare

Our mission is to provide you with personalized, high-quality care. We are dedicated to improving and maintaining your health through preventative care and treating chronic diseases. 

Experienced Medical Professionals

We offer broad array of services geared to address today’s most common non-emergency illnesses and injuries. We know there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all cure, so we never use a one-size-fits-all approach to your diagnosis. 

A Personal Approach

Our goal is to improve and maintain your overall health and to empower you with an understanding of your condition and wellness plan.  

Why Direct Care

Our Philosphy

Direct primary care is a family medicine model of practice where we are here for you, and we work directly for you, not for your insurance.  We don't bill your insurance for anything we do in our office, although you will still need an insurance plan for hospitalizations, surgeries, specialist visits, labs and xrays. 

Price Transparency

Patients are paying higher premiums, deductibles, and copayments, meaning more out-of-pocket costs, and more reluctance to get the care you need. We have a set monthly fee you can budget for, and may allow you to get a policy with a lower premium with a higher deductible. Our membership is not insurance, and may not be applied toward your deductible or HSA, but we still may be able to save you money with lower cost labs and medication.

Your Family Physician

Direct Primary Care (DPC) welcomes technology to streamline care (like texting and telemedicine) for convenience, and also preserves the old-fashioned family doctor relationship. We believe this is what patients really want and deserve, the time and attention to treat both mind and body in treating illness and maintaining wellness.
