In the past, people had a relationship with their physician; they weren’t just a number on an electronic chart. If they were sick, they saw their physician that day, not a week later.
If you couldn’t make it to the doctor, the doctor came to you. It was personal. It was how the practice of medicine should be, and can be again.
Hitchcock Family Medicine is a Direct Primary Care practice located in Chattanooga, Tennessee that operates on a monthly membership fee and does not take insurance.
Each month, you pay a membership fee directly to Hitchcock Family Medicine. Members will have a phone number to reach their doctor directly anytime of the day.
In addition to this, any procedure or test that can be done in the office is included. If it is medically indicated, house calls and after hours visits are offered at no additional charge. Other outside lab testing and imaging have been negotiated at a greatly reduced price. In order to achieve this, we will have fewer patients than a traditional practice.
