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.

“When I left my corporate job to start my own business, one of many new challenges was finding quality health care. When I was starting to look for a new Primary Care Doctor, a peer recommended Direct Primary Care. I did some research and found Dr. Muzzi. In the years leading up to finding Dr. Muzzi, the way I think about my health evolved to fit a more modern view of health and science with a focus on overall wellness and preventative medicine. I was surprised and delighted on my first visit to find Dr. Muzzi not only shared this view, but was practicing medicine in this way. Focusing on my overall wellness rather than treating symptoms has improved my quality of life and undoubtedly add quality years to my life. Dr. Muzzi knows me. She knows what I do for work, where I travel, sports and activities, our pets, what I wear to Burning Man and even knows my Dad (who approves!). Taken at face value, this may seem like a cute note to show that we’re friendly. But this depth of knowledge is organically woven into the care she provides every time we speak and my health is better for it. I never imagined Dr. Muzzi existed before I found her. Now, I can’t picture a future of my healthcare without her. If the traditional Doctor / Patient relationship makes you feel like you’re stuck in I4 traffic (frustrated & certain no one will ever fix it) and you want to change that, you’re in the right place.”
