Managing Chronic Disease

Health Management with Direct Primary Care

chronic disease management durham

We understand that living with an on-going health issue such as diabetes or asthma can impact your life and, without the proper care, lead to dangerous complications. At Doc Matt Direct, we understand the unique needs of chronic illness. We make sure you never have to face your illness or health issues alone or worry about not being able to afford quality, personalized healthcare from your family physician.

An Affordable Solution to Managing Chronic Disease

Because we use a Direct Primary Care model of healthcare, we offer an affordable solution for your health care. Our patients never pay a copay, worry about a deductible, or receive a surprise bill.

Instead of traditional fee-for-service care and battling with insurance companies, our patients pay a low monthly membership fee. That fee covers all your office visits and provides prescriptions at cost, so you don’t need to worry about how managing your chronic disease will impact your budget.

Personalized Care for a Better Patient Outcome

By eliminating insurance companies, there is no middleman with a say in your treatment options. Instead, Dr. Hong will work with you to discover a treatment plan and long-term health solutions that will lead to a better quality of life.

In addition to acute care to manage your symptoms, Dr. Hong performs comprehensive annual physicals that are tailored to your specific health needs. While he is always updating your information with each visit, the annual physical gives you both a clear picture of your overall health and wellbeing.

Unlike many physicians who carry a patient list of over 2,000 people, Dr. Hong limits his patient list to around 500, and because we don’t have to worry about paperwork for insurance companies, we can spend more time with our patients. We’re here to answer your questions, address your concerns, and cultivate the traditional doctor-patient relationship so you feel empowered and visible, rather than rushed and ignored.

Care When You Need It

At Doc Matt Direct, we understand that during the course of managing chronic disease, you’ll have questions, concerns, and even complications to address. To provide the care you need when you need it, we offer 24/7 availability. Reach out to us via text, email, or phone, and we’ll be there to help. Struggling with a flare-up or need advice while you’re out of town, and we can see you via telemedicine where we meet through video chat. No matter what, we’re there for you!
