Dr. Rebekah Bernard isn’t just a primary care doctor, she’s an entrepreneur.
Fed up with the healthcare system, she opened her own direct primary care practice in 2016 called Gulf Coast Direct Primary Care.
“Right now, they say doctors spend more time on paperwork than they do with patients. Direct primary care totally changes that,” Bernard says.
What is it?
Direct Primary Care is just as it sounds, direct. There’s no insurance company, no middleman, or government involved.
Patients pay the doctor a monthly fee, in this case around $75 bucks, for unlimited visits.
