Direct Primary Care
Whole Family is a Direct Primary Care (DPC) practice, wholly owned by Dr. Eleanor Host, MD.
DPC is not a franchise or a national medical organization or HMO. DPC is a way for you to improve your wellness and attend to illness and injury with greater efficiency, confidence, and financial security.
As a DPC medical practice, Whole Family Medical Care does not accept insurance plans on behalf of our patients.
Your annual patient membership entitles you to the kind of doctor/patient relationship that insurance plans most often reject. Whole Family member-patients see these advantages from our practice:
As many as 99 office visits per year
Visits with Dr. Host that can last about 45 minutes if needed, instead of the usually-mandated 15 minutes.
Appointments for the entire family in one trip.
Treatment options such as massage, acupuncture, therapy, and more.
Generic prescription purchases in-office at cost or near cost
Reduced-price lab tests
Whole Family patients have found that DPC is the way to better personal and family healthcare. Find out more from the links on this page and elsewhere at our website.

Dr. Host has written a letter that explains more of her choice to make Whole Family Medical Care a Direct Primary Care practice.
