A new way to do healthcare in South Georgia

We practice medicine a little differently at direct DOC. By utilizing a direct primary care (DPC) model, we do not bill your insurance for the care we provide; rather, we charge a monthly membership fee for access to a wealth of care benefits. We don’t collect co-pays, nor do we bill your insurance for the care we provide. We keep it as simple as possible.

Unlimited Access.
No wait. No hassles.

See the benefits

direct DOC is part of an innovative movement in health care called Direct Primary Care (DPC). Our members join direct DOC through a flat, recurring monthly fee, much like a gym membership. This model reduces the hassle of insurance claims and allows the growth of a patient-doctor relationship as it should be: with the focus on your health. direct DOC is your advocate for affordable, yet excellent, medical care and 24/7 access to your provider– anytime and anywhere.

Healthcare the way it should be.

Schedule a tour

Instant access. No hassles.

  • No waiting around for your doctor
  • No surprise bills
  • Option to call, text, or e-mail for advice, anytime
  • Founded on the idea of true personal care– we know our patients by name.

A Personalized Approach to Healthcare

Our goal is to provide our members with excellent primary care in a cost-efficient and transparent manner. By limiting our practice to around 900 patients per provider (traditional practices average 2,500 patients per provider), you will have increased access to our providers. Wholesale prices on labs and many generic medications, along with extended office visits, are just a few of the benefits our members receive.

Dr. Jonathan Wade

DO FAAFP | Co-Founder & CEO

My goal as a physician is to work for my patients to improve their lives through better health care. Starting direct DOC was a way to accomplish that goal by reducing the cost of care and removing the insurance ``middleman`` that creates headaches for providers and patients alike. At direct DOC, we can get back to how health care should be – with your health and well-being at the forefront. We look forward to adding you to our medical family and showing you how your health care should be.
