What is Direct Primary Care?

Chart & Stethoscope

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a growing movement of independent doctors who are passionate about providing quality care and building strong relationships with their patients. We believe in simplifying healthcare. We also believe the relationship between doctor and patient is fundamental to truly making a difference for a healthy life. 

Patients pay an affordable, monthly membership fee and get unlimited primary care. Visits are longer and comprehensive, and patients can easily get in for appointments when needed. Topics like nutrition, exercise, and preventative measures are frequently discussed and revisited. In addition, patients are able to consult their doctor by email, phone, or text, making care seamless and convenient.


In an effort to help reduce healthcare costs for their patients, DPC doctors offer discounted labs and medications. They help coordinate discount radiology and pathology testing.


Passionate advocates for their patients, DPC doctors are committed to assisting their patients with coordinating care with specialists, and navigating the complex healthcare system. 

It's like having a doctor in the family. 

The Story Behind the Name

The network of Cleveland Metroparks knowns as the "Emerald Necklace" was the inspiration behind the name of Emerald Direct Primary Care.


Not only does Dr. Moini love hiking and exploring the metroparks with her family, but she found them to be a symbol of health and vitality surrounding the city of Cleveland. She hopes to bring both to the city she loves through Emerald Direct Primary Care.
