Some links related to Direct Primary Care and medicine

These are general sites that I use as a reference or find interesting.  

The usual disclaimers are pertinent, I can't fact check every item on these sites and you shouldn't rely on the internet for your health advice, ask your physician.  The same hold true for Health Savings Accounts, Affordable Care Act requirements, etc. and your accountant or advisor.

If you can't get hold of your physician easily or your physician requires an appointment to discuss an issue, then Direct Primary Care (DPC) can solve that.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has lots of great resources about prevention, vaccines and travel medicine.
