What is Direct Primary Care?
The direct primary care (DPC) model gives family practitioners a meaningful alternative to fee-for-service insurance billing, typically by charging patients a monthly, quarterly, or annual fee. This fee covers all or most primary care services including clinical and laboratory services, consultative services, care coordination, and comprehensive care management.
Because some services are not covered by a retainer, DPC practices often suggest that patients acquire a high-deductible wraparound policy to cover emergencies. (Source)
Blair Lober, CRNP
Coastal Health & Wellness was started by Blair Lober, CRNP to deliver affordable, quality health care. She received a dual nurse practitioner degree in Family and Acute Care from the University of South Alabama. Her experience as a nurse practitioner includes family medicine, home health, geriatric medicine, and functional medicine. Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, she worked as a RN at UAB Hospital in the Trauma/Burn ICU.
When she is not seeing patients, Blair enjoys spending time on the water with her husband, Jason, and her three boys, Jackson, Hampton, & Harrison.
This is the biggest life saver for a busy life! Blair is flexible, professional, and knowledgeable. I won’t visit another urgent care to wait hours with a bunch of other sick people, because this is 1000x better! Get great, personal care from the best for everyone in your family. We LOVE this business.
Blair Lober has been such a blessing to our family. After moving here from Louisiana, I interviewed lots of practitioners in the area for my family of six. Not a single one held a candle to Bliar. I love that she is easy to get ahold of to make an appt to be seen. My favorite thing about Blair is that she is genuine and very easy to talk to. She actively listens to your concerns and speaks to you as a person and not just a patient. So many practitioners we have met before finding Blair wouldn't even look at us as we spoke. Their noses were buried in their laptop while they fired questions to me in rapid sentences. I missed the personal care and attention that doctors used to provide. Blair is the exception. Her personalized care and attention to the needs of my family during our appointments have been unmatched from any provider we have met in family medicine. We are so blessed to have found her.
