Welcome to Pioneer Health DPC
Where the Farm to Table Concept Meets Healthcare
Dr. Smith introduced the direct primary care model to the Stillwater area in January of 2021.
Our team is committed to going above and beyond to provide patients the care and attention they deserve at a value they can afford outside the constraints of insurance!
We are currently taking new patients at this time. Enrollment is available online through the link below.
Established patients, the Patient Hub is now available to access billing and scheduling online.
Through the direct primary care model, patients at Pioneer Health are able to seamlessly communicate with their healthcare team. Same or next day appointments available as are extended appointments.
Direct Primary Care
Dr. Smith is proud to offer the first direct primary care clinic in Stillwater through Pioneer Health DPC. Direct primary care is a new model for old fashioned medical care. It is a grassroots movement led by physicians to restore the doctor-patient relationship through transparent, affordable, personalized care. I am able to do so by working directly for you, rather than insurance companies. Instead, patients pay a monthly membership fee, similar to a gym membership, for unrestricted access to my services.
Access to Care
In the direct primary care model I am able to address your concerns in a number of convenient ways. That may mean a traditional in-office visit and longer appointment times are available to allow you to address all your concerns in just one visit. Often, however, a simple text, email, or phone conversation is sufficient. In the direct primary care model, I am free to provide my services by the means best suited to your situation.
At first glance adding a monthly payment to your budget may not seem to offer cost savings. But in direct primary care, there are no hidden fees. Your monthly membership provides you unlimited access to the care you need. When you add up the out of pocket expenses of urgent care visits, copays, and deductibles that can often be avoided by being a DPC member, the cost savings add up quickly.
Relationship Based Care
Many of you are already like family to me. The Direct Primary Care model allows me to focus my efforts more fully upon you rather than attempting to satisfy the demands of a third party payer.
