Q: Can you tell us more about how First State Primary Care can impact low-income and marginalized communities?
A: At First State Primary Care, we believe that healthcare should be accessible and affordable for everyone, regardless of their financial or social circumstances. By contracting directly with our patients, we can provide longer, same-day or following-day appointments and direct access to doctors via text, email, or phone. We also offer significantly reduced prices for medications, lab work, imaging, and in-office procedures like EKGs, Spirometry, Skin biopsies, Joint injections/Draining, wholesale medications, and at-cost lab work and imaging. This means that low-income and marginalized communities can access high-quality care without worrying about the financial burden that often comes with healthcare.
Q: How can First State Primary Care benefit seniors?

This includes office, home, and telehealth visits, direct access to your doctor via text, email, or phone, in-office procedures, wholesale medications, and at-cost lab work and imaging. This means that seniors can access comprehensive care without worrying about financial costs, leading to better health outcomes and improved quality of life.
