We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Tami Singh and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dr. Tami, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I worked for a multispecialty group out of residency training as a family practicioner and realized after 7 years that I was not practicing medicine the way I wanted to or dreamed of. I was fortunate to stumble upon a model called Direct Primary Care. There were hundreds of like minded physicians that were part of this movement and welcomed me with open arms. After doing my research I was able to open my practice in 2018. Aspire Health – Direct Primary Care is unique when compared to the traditional primary care offices in which it is based off a membership model that allows patients unlimited access to their provider for a low cost.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Our membership model allows patients unlimited visits as well as access to myself through cell phone, text or email. Patients have an open communication with me and this provides better outcomes in their health. Members that do not have insurance are able to take advantage of discount lab pricing and medications in the office. Those with insurance can get their labs drawn in the office for no fees and billed through their insurance. Members are able to get same day or next day appointments (virtual or in person). Minimal to no wait times. 1-2 hr first visits. 30min to 1hr follow up appointments. I was able to be successful in my practice by starting out doing everyones job from triaging patients, to answering phones and phlebotomy. I did this before hiring staff to really understand and know what it takes to run a successful practice. It was not an easy road and I continue to have struggles. But I love what I have developed, and love what I do! Aspire health is about aspiring to better health and a preventative care.
