What is Direct Primary Care?
A membership based model in medicine geared towards enhancing the relationship between patient and physician. All medical care with Gentle Baby Pediatrics, testing orders, paperwork, direct access to the provider is all included for a flat monthly fee. You will receive personalized and family-centered care for your child at all life stages. *Please read membership page for details*
Are you currently accepting new patients?
Yes, however membership will be capped at a certain number of patients. A patient cap is the key to providing the personalized care that Gentle Baby Pediatrics achieves. Fewer patients equals more attention, convenience, and flexibility in members' personalized medical care. Let us know if you are interested in a Meet & Greet opportunity via Zoom!
