At Nostalgia Family Medicine, we know how important primary care is in ensuring your optimal health. Brandon Fletcher, MD, offers comprehensive care to families in Longwood, Florida, including direct primary care services. 

Our team curated this guide to help you understand what direct primary care is and why you should consider switching to it this year. Read on to learn more! 

What is direct primary care?

Direct primary care offers the same care as traditional primary care but with alternative billing and paying, without sending claims to your insurance provider. This means more time for meaningful care since Dr. Fletcher doesn’t have to spend his time reporting or billing large insurance companies or government agencies.  

Why make the switch to direct primary care?

With direct primary care at Nostalgia Family Medicine, Dr. Fletcher is able to offer you substantial savings on lab services, prescription drugs, imaging, and more. This allows him to be more available to our patients, providing care via text, online chatting, email, and phone calls.

Direct primary care screens for health conditions that don’t have obvious symptoms, ensuring any issues are caught and treated early. As a direct primary physician, Dr. Fletcher can care for everyone in your home, regardless of age, so you won’t need to go to another provider to get the medical care you need, including:

What can I expect during a direct primary care visit?

We understand how difficult it can be to fit in regular primary care visits. That’s why at Nostalgia Family Medicine, we make it easy with flexible scheduling, same-day and next-day examinations, and even telemedicine. We work hard to ensure you’re seen quickly and all of your healthcare needs are met. 

During a direct primary care visit at Nostalgia Family Medicine, Dr. Fletcher reviews your medical history, any past illnesses, surgeries, and your unique lifestyle considerations. He’ll complete a physical exam and record your vital signs. In addition, if you need immunizations or a flu shot, you can get them during your visit. 

Depending on your needs, your exam may include:

Dr. Fletcher also offers comprehensive preventive services, like intravenous (IV) therapy, in-house lab testing, EKG heart monitoring, and basic medication dispensation.
