YOUR DIRECT PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN
ALEEA GUPTA, MD
My greatest strength as a physician is my ability to connect with people. I moved around a lot as a child, and I developed relationships with people from different cultures and backgrounds very early in life. My native language is English, but I learned to speak Spanish when I was I living in Miami. No matter where my patients are from, or what their circumstances are, my goal is to bring personalized, high-quality medical care to each person I work with.
A PASSION FOR PARTNERING WITH PEOPLE TO IMPROVE THEIR HEALTH
As a physician, I love having the ability to partner with people to improve their health. Unfortunately, the current state of the healthcare industry makes this difficult to do. In the last 20 years, I’ve worked as a board-certified family physician in several different settings, including a university practice, an HMO practice, a traditional private practice, and a community clinic. I felt forced to spend less and less time with my patients. On top of that, I saw people without health insurance face skyrocketing medical expenses.
“I kept wishing that I could offer my skills and my time directly to people, since both doctors and patients are suffering in the current medical system.”
Ultimately, my goal has always been to treat my patients with the same love and care with which I treat my own family. I want to help my patients stay healthy so that they can care for their families. After all, family comes first. The relationships that I build with my patients last for years. I am honored to be able to take care of multiple generations within a family and to offer my skills and experience to our community.
MY MOTIVATION FOR STARTING MY OWN
DIRECT PRIMARY CARE PRACTICE
Direct primary care is very different from the current fee-for-service healthcare model. Among other benefits, patients gain unlimited monthly visits, extended appointments, short wait times and the ability to contact their physician directly — all for a low monthly membership fee.
When I discovered direct primary care, I knew it was the model I had been hoping to find. I immediately realized that it would allow me to offer my patients the highest quality, most affordable, and most accessible services possible.
I can take care of the entire patient, one visit at a time, without fear of running up a huge bill. With this model, I can prevent illnesses and address them when they arise, since there are no limits on how often my patients can see me.
