Preventive Care

Preventive Care Orlando FLLike many Americans, you might be inclined to skip your annual physical examination. And, that’s quite understandable. After all, in the traditional healthcare system, a doctor visit is typically expensive, so why incur an unnecessary expense if you’re feeling fine? Instead, you might see a doctor only if you are sick or injured, which means you could go years without ever stepping inside a medical facility.

The problem with that is, as your health goes unchecked over the years, you could potentially develop some detrimental habits. Think about it. Do you consistently consume a nutritious diet? Exercise regularly? Maintain a healthy body weight? Avoid tobacco products and alcoholic beverages? If not, your health may suffer as a result, which means you’ll eventually have to see a doctor anyway – and incur the associated costs – because you aren’t feeling well.

Direct Primary Care Helps You Stay Healthy

Direct primary care (DPC) is turning the traditional healthcare system on its head. Instead of focusing on treating illnesses and injuries after they occur, DPC focuses on keeping you well. How? With DPC, you don’t have to worry about paying insurance deductibles or copayments, or making advance appointments to see your primary care doctor. In exchange for a set monthly membership fee, you benefit from unlimited office visits and telemedicine consultations via voice, videoconferencing, and SMS text. Your DPC doctor is a dedicated partner who helps you:

  • Track your health and bellwether “numbers,” such as your body weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood glucose level
  • Make positive lifestyle changes to enhance your health
  • Identify and address any early symptoms of an underlying medical issue – before it becomes a major problem

The True Goal of Practicing Medicine

If you ask any healthcare provider why he or she initially chose the medical field, you’ll probably receive an answer to the effect of “I wanted to help people lead a healthier and happier life.” But, the “only see them when they’re sick” mentality is inconsistent with this goal. It simply doesn’t afford a medical professional sufficient opportunities to do what he or she spent many years learning. On the other hand, DPC does.

“The switch to Dr. Muzzi took some getting used to. I am not accustomed to Doctors actually calling me back promptly nor spending quality time with me analyzing my complete medical make up. In this medical era of 'get them in and get them out quickly', her approach is professionally refreshing”

“My husband and I were in search of a new physician when my neighbor mentioned that we should meet Dr Toni Muzzinigro who was a “Direct Primary Care” physician. We were not familiar with the term and were very intrigued. We made an initial appointment with her and learned so many things that we didn’t think existed anymore. Her main focus is on the patient and not the insurance companies! When she doesn’t have to worry about the bureaucracy and red tape of insurance companies, she has so much more time to listen to the patient and come up with a truly great level of care. The patient comes first and foremost. Our initial appointment was so thorough. She wanted to know every aspect of our past records. I felt like she really cared about us and her main goal was to keep us as healthy as possible. During our annual appointments, Dr. Muzzi schedules enough time to go over every concern you may have. Her explanations of test results are very thorough, and she is very knowledgeable of up to date medical breakthroughs. There have been some times during the year that we needed a doctor’s advice quickly. She is available to us basically 24/7. You can get in touch with her via phone, text, or video conferencing. Many things can be handled in a quick and timely manner. However, if there is a need to see her personally, getting in to see her doesn’t take weeks. Usually, you can make an appointment the very next day. How comforting is it to know that your doctor is always available to you and truly cares about your wellbeing! That is worth its weight in gold! Her staff are an added bonus! They run the office efficiently and take care of any other needs we may have. Another great advantage is that Dr. Muzzi has a network of specialists, labs, and resources available to us and at a discounted rate and free generic prescriptions. Personally, we like the fact that someone can help us navigate the medical system and direct us in the right direction. I simply can’t say enough. Dr. Muzzi has become our doctor as well as a good friend. She will always have our best interest at heart and her main goal is to provide the highest level of care. We are so thankful to have found Dr. Muzzi and Optimum Direct Care.”
