Laurie Birkholz, MD, and Associates
The Direct Primary Care (DPC) model is a more affordable way to become a member of the practice. Patients pay a monthly or annual fee based on their age and modest fees for visits. Patients can expect an exceptional standard of care with access to same-day or next-business-day appointments for urgent matters, longer appointment times, little-to-no-wait times, convenient technology and membership in a practice dedicated specifically to the complex health needs of women. DPC patients will also benefit from discounted pricing for consult appointments with Dr. Birkholz to address more complicated Women’s Health concerns and/or procedures. DPC patients will see Nurse Practitioner, Anna Spoelhof. Learn more about Anna here.
