About Direct Care Physicians of Pittsburgh

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 Member Practices follow 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 the 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.
