Primary Care Doctor in Pittsburgh, PA

Welcome to Family Matters; we look forward to caring for you.

At Family Matters Direct Primary Care, our small practice follows a revolutionary (but simultaneously refreshingly old-fashioned) model of care. Called Direct Primary Care (DPC), this healthcare delivery model allows patients to contract directly with our team for basic medical services. 

By “subscribing” to our practice through a standard monthly fee, all of the typical outpatient primary care services found in a large office can be provided at Family Matters Direct Primary Care. Services are also available to all, regardless of their traditional insurance status. Since we do not bill any insurance company for our services, all costs and payments are determined and arranged through Family Matters Direct Primary Care.

The following is a basic overview of our primary care and family services. More information about our core examinations and procedures are also available on this website.

To learn more, schedule a visit, or sign up for our services, please contact us by phone or online. We allow a full hour for new patient appointments. 

Note that you can also spend half an hour with one of our doctors during an initial consultation, where you can explore the DPC care model and ask us questions directly. You will have no obligation to register with us following a consultation. No medical advice or treatment will be offered at this consultation.
