Frequently Asked Questions

What is Direct Primary Care? 

Direct Primary Care (DPC for short) is an innovative model of medicine which has been growing all over the country. In DPC, the patient pays the physician an affordable monthly fee in exchange for medical care. Paying the physician through a third party such as insurance is eliminated. This equates to overall better care, lower costs, and less interference in the doctor patient relationship. Orange Blossom Medical is a direct primary care practice. Dr. Suarez Kobilis will not be billing insurance nor accepting insurance payments. 

Wait a minute- I have insurance, why would I choose a DPC doctor?

Unfortunately in today's medical world it can take weeks to months to even a full year to see your doctor that works in a traditional insurance based system. All of this goes away with Direct Primary Care. DPC doctors see far fewer patients and hence have much greater availability.


At Orange Blossom Medical, Dr. Suarez Kobilis will have fewer patients; therefore, appointments will be able to be obtained in a timely manner. Insurance restrictions will not interfere in the patient doctor relationship. Patients will be able to call, text or email Dr. Suarez Kobilis directly.


Also, appointments will start on time and will never be rushed. No longer will patients have to wait hours in a waiting room or speak to a medical assistant who will then speak to the doctor and then relay the doctor's message to the patient. Patients will avoid the need to having to always go to an Urgent Care to be seen. Medical costs should be lower in the Direct Primary Care model.

Wait- do I still need insurance then if I see Dr. Suarez Kobilis?

Yes- we still highly recommend that the patient has medical insurance. Orange Blossom Medical is not a replacement for traditional insurance. The patient can use their insurance for medications, labs, imaging, specialist visits, and hospitalizations.
