How does this work? No insurance? What about Medicare? Click here to become more familiar with the Direct Primary Care model Black Bag Family Healthcare offers.
Black Bag Family Healthcare operates as a Direct Primary Care practice. It’s a new approach to medicine. So, how is it different?
Most family docs in Tennessee routinely include 3,500 patients or more in their practices. Others around the country are even more packed- 4,000 to 5,000 patients! With Black Bag Family Healthcare, you’ll be part of a devoted family practice consisting of around only 700 patients per provider. This means that we can spend more time with you when you need us. The average Family Practice physician spends about 8 minutes with each patient. With Black Bag Family Healthcare, the Doc will spend as long as needed to listen, explain, and treat your problem. With this innovative model, the advantages are clear and abundant.
A Doctor You Can Trust
Black Bag Family Healthcare revives the cherished concept of a personal physician-patient relationship. We prioritize genuine customer service, ensuring you’re always attended by a familiar face, available even after regular hours through phone, text, or email. Recognizing the value of your time, we offer prompt appointments with minimal wait, the flexibility to meet you at your preferred location, and thorough consultations addressing all your concerns. Whether it’s a simple call or an in-person visit, our dedication is to provide personalized care, anytime and anywhere. Say goodbye to long waits and impersonal medical visits, and welcome back the intimacy of a trusted family doctor.
