San Tan Valley, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/18/2015 -- MY DR NOW's innovative model has built them a reputation for providing a remarkable level of accessible, affordable and patient centered medical services. Recently, MY DR NOW announced acquisition of the Laveen Urgent Care space, thereby expanding their foothold with a second facility in the much-needed South Mountain community.
Now more than ever, there's no doubt that having access to affordable medical care is a fundamental priority for a great number of Americans. In Arizona, MY DR NOW is making great strides in this arena with their comprehensive healthcare concept known as the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model. MY DR NOW recently announced they have acquired Laveen Urgent Care's space in Laveen Ranch Marketplace on the corner of Baseline and 51st Avenue, to better serve the Laveen community. MY DR NOW is well known for their unique and innovative model of serving communities by delivering both primary and urgent care services under one roof. This hybrid model coupled with late hours and walk-in or scheduled appointment availability 365 days a year, has given the traditional doctor's office and urgent cares a run for their money. Needless to say, the response in Laveen to news of such a ground-breaking healthcare provider has been very enthusiastic.
"We do our best to distance ourselves from terms like urgent or primary care," commented Dr. Payam Zamani, MY DR NOW's founder and CEO. "Instead we view it as facilitating patient provider interactions on the MY DR NOW platform, that puts the focus back on the patient."
This isn't their first facility in the South Mountain community. MY DR NOW opened their first clinic there in August of 2013 on the corner of Baseline and 27th ave Avenue. The clinic is over 7,500 square feet and has already served over 37,000 patients.
MY DR NOW accepts all major insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid, and even launched their own discounted health plan last year to fill in the gaps most commercial insurance plans are fraught with. The Perfect 10 Plan, named for their $10 office visits, costs $40 a month, and has a $0 deductible and $0 coinsurance responsibility due by the patient.
Dr. Zamani, remarked, "Our Perfect 10 Plan follows a direct primary care model of providing a narrow network of primary care services for a nominal fee." One of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had is seeing someone who has not seen a doctor in years now have access to healthcare in an affordable and cost effective manner. That's the spirit that fuels much of what we try to do here with MY DR NOW." It's the entrepreneurial spirit and the commoditization of healthcare that will deliver solutions, not Washington" said Zamani.
The Perfect 10 plan has become so popular that the clinic has had to stop advertising the plan. In June, only 1000 more plans will be made available for the remainder of 2015, and a waiting list has been created to help those who would like to get on board.
Beyond opening more locations, MY DR NOW also has other breakthrough plans for the near future according to the company's CEO. Some of which could shift the way people think of healthcare completely.
"I think you are going to be surprised at how affordable healthcare services can be once a company our size starts to scale and strip away the occupancy costs associated with brick and mortar. Think Netflix. It's a game changer," commented Dr. Zamani on the future of MY DR NOW. "We like to be disruptive. You don't have to always play nice in the sandbox. We believe that soon patients will be able to be seen at home for the same price, or less than the cost of an urgent care co-pay."
