For many patients, traditional healthcare solutions leave gaps in the way their health is addressed. Instead of preventing injury and illness before they become a source of struggle, patients are treated reactively, only after they’re sick and their lives have been affected for the worse.
At Direct Care Physicians of Pittsburgh (DCPP), we’re proud to do things differently. Our physician-owned practice follows the Direct Primary Care (DPC) approach, allowing us to spend all the time and energy necessary to educate patients on their bodies, be there when they need us, and help them to make decisions about their health in which they feel comfortable and confident. Most importantly, we practice preventative care, focusing on testing and lifestyle guidance to help patients be as healthy as possible before they get sick.
Direct Care Physicians of Pittsburgh is committed to challenging the status quo of healthcare and providing a better experience for all patients. If you’re ready to take charge of your health and receive the hands-on, one-on-one care you deserve, schedule your first consultation with the DCPP team today.
The team of highly-trained, compassionate physicians at Direct Care Physicians of Pittsburgh (DCPP) is proud to treat a wide variety of patients at an individualized level. From children and young adults to middle-aged patients and elders, we have the broad range of expertise to help your whole family live happier, healthier lives with the support of a dedicated medical professional.
I say this with seriousness and sincerity. Doctor Gentile saved my life. For decades my health has slowly been spiraling out of control. Issues created new issues, challenges became barriers, and I had all but given up on ever feeling well again. But when I met Dr. G through the recommendati...Christopher B. Posted On December 8, 2021

Dr. Gentile is truly wonderful--she actively listens and takes as much time as is needed. She is very knowledgeable and willing to explain all the options for a given treatment/wellness path so you can make an informed decision about your own health. The DPC model is really a model for what heal...Alison O. Posted On December 6, 2021
Dr Lin is very caring in her approach to treating patients. It’s one of the only times in my life I’ve ever really felt heard By a physician. She always takes the time to answer all my questions and, if she doesn’t know the answer, she will research and always gets back to me. This is the first t...Melissa T. Posted On November 23, 2021
Dr G reminds me of the old time doctor who first and foremost had really good "hearing!" Most doctors spend just minutes with you and then order a battery of tests and the appointment is over. I believe a person knows their body well and with some quality time and pointed questioning the real is...Steve S. Posted On November 22, 2021
I've found Dr Gentile to be a compassionate doctor who goes the extra mile to keep her patients in good health. I've never seen another doctor advocating for preventative health the way she does. When I had to get blood tests, she made sure it was at the exact rates charged to her practice (over ...Monica . Posted On October 31, 2021
My husband and I started going to this practice a year and a half ago after our PCP, who was also independent, retired. We generally see Dr. Dougherty but have seen Dr. Lin if Dr. Dougherty is out of the office. Joining this practice as patients is the best healthcare decision we have made. They ...Marjorie S.

Personal, unrushed, fully attentive, relaxing, detailed care from Dr Lin's office. The evidenced-based, cutting edge knowledge centred proof was visible in me, to all, by 3 months, and at extremely low cost! I have been pointed rightly too, to a truly viable, sustainable, plant-based, whole foods...YINKA L. Posted On October 14, 2021
Dr Byard is awesome . After my heart attack and having her in the hospital overlooking my care I made her my family doctor . Her bedside manner and the way she cared and took the time to make sure that I understood everything that was going on in my body at the time was a blessingJohn S. Posted On September 29, 2021
Had my first appointment with Dr. Gentile a few weeks ago. Can honestly say it was the best medical experience I can remember having. Glad I made the decision to see her and feel confident about the future of my health related needs and questions. Easily transcends both the overall quality and pr...Trevor G.
