Our clinic at Seacoast Direct Primary Care, is dedicated to serving you, our patient. Seacoast Direct Primary Care is not paid by insurance companies for codes and data. We are paid by you, and so our goals are the same as your goals: fewer medications, easy access to your doctor via email, phone or text, and streamlined, unhurried patient visits.
The average primary care doctor has a panel of 2000-3000 patients. Patients need to be seen in 10-15 minute intervals, with a large part of the visit focused on completing the Electronic Health record. At Seacoast Direct Primary Care, Dr. Carter’s panel is 200-300. With this reduced panel, Dr. Carter is able to really get to know you in your entirety. She can spend the time you and her both need to come up with a comprehensive treatment plan, and understanding of your health goals. When you call, Dr. Carter knows who you are, and how to treat you. Sometimes, care can be given over the phone. If not, Dr. Carter is able to see you the same day or next day. When you are at the office, you are guaranteed to see Dr. Carter herself.
With a small monthly membership, you are able to become part of the medical home at Seacoast Direct Primary Care. You are at the heart of your health.

Medicare & Insurance Questions
Seacoast DPC does not accept insurance, including Medicare. Having insurance is still likely a good idea, for catastrophic purposes. Consider a low premium, high deductible insurance plan. Seacoast Direct Primary Care is not insurance. You can submit specialist visits, laboratory charges, and imaging, to insurance. For Medicare participants, you cannot submit your monthly bill to Medicare for reimbursement. If you have a Health Savings Account through work, you can use this to pay for your monthly membership.
