Direct Primary Care, Community-Supported Medicine

  • A model of practice that focuses on relationships between doctor, staff and patient, managing problems without calling the patient into the office unnecessarily, utilizing phone, virtual and in-person contacts to translate questions into care. 

  • Our goals are to offer:   

    • Better health outcomes associated with clear plans created by doctor and patient together. 

    • Lower costs through a flat and predictable primary care fee.

    • Enhanced patient experience as you interact directly with one physician who makes it her goal to know your history.

Dr. Marian is more than just my doctor, and has changed my view of what a doctor should be. She has helped me to move from "fix it" to "let's choose a healthier lifestyle so we don't have to fix something." She has shown me the difference between sick care and health care and engaged me as a partner in my own health.

...I “pay her to stay well”’ rather than reimbursing her through an insurance company to “cure my discomforts”.  I now know what real healthcare means.

Marian has my full trust.  She is positive and has many years of experience.

Marian is an extraordinary doctor, and a very brilliant one. She listens, she’s kind, she’s absolutely, passionately relentless in pursuit of health and healing for her patients. She really cares, she’s open-minded, she takes all the time needed. And she has a sense of humor!
