Unorthodoc offers primary care with a transparent, predictable fees, allowing the focus to shift to you and your well-being instead of how the doctor is paid. Through an affordable membership, you partner with Dr. Annis for health care that is:
- Ample time with the doctor during your visits.
- Same day or next day visits for urgent problems.
- Increased access through texting, video, phone, and, when appropriate, home visits.
- Reliable coordination of tests, specialist visits and hospital transitions.
- A home base for your medical records, concerns and wellness goals.
- A medical relationship you trust and keep regardless of changes in your insurance or job.
- Low monthly membership fee includes easy scheduling of all visits with no added charge for basic labs and studies*:
Primary care for a family of four is $4.92/day, less than the cost of a sandwich!
