Small Business Spotlight: Thrive Adult Primary Care
I recently visited with Dr. Mary Medeiros, the owner and practitioner of Thrive Adult Primary Care. Dr. Medeiros has been offering direct primary care to her patients since opening her doors in September. Direct Primary Care is a relatively new concept of patient care – in short, it is concierge level quality and medical service for the everyday person. Thrive Adult Primary Care is upheld by patient fees, without any third party interference (i.e. insurance companies), so that Dr. Medeiros’ practices can provide around-the-clock availability, relaxed and thorough office visits, personalized attention, and in many ways, actual cost savings to her patients. Depending on a few factors such as age and medical needs, a monthly fee of $50-$150 is required which then gives you all the amenities listed above, along with home visits.
This model of care has been in existence since 2010, with only 1,000 practices in the US and only twelve throughout the Commonwealth. By using this grassroots approach to patient care, it puts primary care medicine into the free market, making services to patients more cost effective and personal. If you are looking for a new and innovative approach to your medical needs, I would advise you to visit Dr. Medeiros’s practice to learn more about how she can apply her principles and practices to your quality of life.
