INTERNAL MEDICINE / DIRECT PRIMARY CARE
NOW ACCEPTING ENROLLMENTS!
OFFICE / HOME / WORKSITE AND TELEMEDICINE VISITS!
Our Lady of Providence Medical seeks to provide a new model of primary care for the NEPA community! We are faithfully Catholic and our Direct Primary Care (DPC) practice structure enables us to provide appropriate levels of care for each individual's needs.
Direct Primary Care involves a monthly fee which allows us to maintain a reasonable number of patients per provider. We do not bill insurance. Patients receive same or next day weekday appointments (at no additional charge), discounted on-site labs ($5 and up!), 24/7 provider coverage, home visits, nutrition counseling, faith based counseling, telemedicine visits, referral services, and so much more!
Imagine timely, relaxed, and unrushed visits without your provider rushing you through while typing into a computer!
As we evolve and grow we plan to add select in-office pharmacy meds (antibiotics, blood pressure pills, etc.), new providers (pediatrics, Ob/gyn, physical therapists, counselors, etc.), a new office site , and so much more!
10% of all profit will be directed to the newly forming Providence Pregnancy Center in North Scranton (providencepregnancycenter.org) and our dream is to evolve into something greater than what we've ever imagined!
Please note we are not insurance, membership fees do not qualify as HSA expenditures nor do they satisfy requirements for insurance under the Affordable Care Act. All are strongly encouraged to maintain standard health insurance or healthshare membership.
While children currently cannot be members, we are available for pediatric appointments age 8 and up on an as needed basis, and children of members will be charged a discounted fee of $29 to $49 per visit.
We are currently in our founding stages, please reach out to us if interested in becoming a patient or helping in any way. Thank you, God bless, and please keep us in your prayers!
