Getting sick never happens at a convenient time–but having a doctor who is just a text & phone call away (literally) is the exact convenience you need–and I can now offer with Signature Primary Care!

 

Many people aren’t happy with medicine these days–both patients and doctors!  As a patient, you deserve to have time with your doctor in order to come up with the care plan that is best for you and for your doctor to be available when you need them in a way that’s convenient for you.  

As physicians, we want to have a direct relationship with you that is not interrupted by insurance, employers or others who might not have your best interest in mind.  We want to have time with you, be available for you and connect with you when and how it’s convenient–not when the insurance rules say we can.  


 

And that’s where Signature Primary Care comes in–this is a totally new way of relating to Dr. Paige and a totally new way of embracing your health.

What makes Signature Primary Care unique?

 
Relationships.png

RELATIONSHIP  Signature Primary Care is based on a strong doctor patient relationship built out of teamwork, trust and mutual respect.  It’s like consulting with a trusted  friend--not a medical technician.

ACCESSIBILITY  I keep my Signature Primary Care patient panel small so you can have direct access to me. Secure email...between visits. Visits are friendly, comfortable and unrushed.

APPROACH   I am an osteopathic family physician who believes in treating the whole person--mind, body and spirit. I practice utilizing an integrative approach focused on lifestyle and natural treatments together with the best of modern medicine.

 

When you are part of Signature Primary Care, you’ve got some big benefits!

Personalized primary care designed around your goals, your schedule, your comfort with a physician that has the time to truly get to know you.

Dr. Paige believes that she best serves those who are willing to partner with her to explore every aspect of their health--physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, you name it.  With a limited number of Signature Primary Care patients, Dr. Paige can make recommendations and form a plan with you based on knowing your unique situation and preferences.

1. Same day or next day appointments with Dr. Paige with little to no wait time.

Dr. Paige believes strongly in her healthcare team and you are still welcome to see her nurse practitioner colleagues as well of course, but only if YOU choose to.

You’ve made the commitment to partner with Dr. Paige in an innovative way and she makes the commitment to you to honor your office visit as an on-time, comfortable, welcoming experience!

2. 21st century medicine and technology with an old-fashioned goal by getting direct connection to Dr. Paige...even after hours.

That’s right.  When something happens after hours that needs direct attention you’ll be able to talk directly with Dr. Paige and determine what to do together, rather than run off to retail clinics, urgent cares or emergency departments.  Round-the-clock care from a physician? You betcha. 

Of course, in the event of a true emergency, you’ll always call 911. And while Dr. Paige is able and more than willing to handle a lot of after hours issues, some will still need to be evaluated at a center of higher level of care.

3. Commitment to the latest and greatest in HEALTH care, sick care using modern medicine and integrative approaches.

Dr. Paige believes that some of the best medicine is NOT medicine at all and she will partner with you to choose your treatment regimens to minimize “just another pill” approaches and maximize safe, effective, evidence-based integrative approaches.

FAQs


 

Doesn’t Dr. Paige do all those things now without a membership If not, why doesn’t she?

Oh boy!  We wish we could do all those things with the current business model, but we don’t!  We have always believed in listening to patients, creating a personalized plan for them, being there when they need us and we know our current patients appreciate that.  The reality is though that the insurance models require a LOT of cost to run a practice and have reimbursement rules that hinder us from taking the time we’d like to practice a comprehensive approach or using technology the way we’d like. And it’s getting worse and worse.  Instead of joining a BIG hospital system that can absorb the costs (that’s a BIG step AWAY from a personalized connection), we’re stepping back in time to good old-fashioned healthcare in a modern way.  In addition, because Dr. Paige has a family to prioritize and spends some time teaching medical students to be awesome primary care doctors in the future, this model allows her to be there for her patients even when she enjoying other aspects of her life.

Do I have to be a Signature Primary Care patient to see Dr. Paige?

Yes.  As of October 1, 2017, you must be a member of Signature Primary Care and Wellness to continue being cared for by Dr. Paige.  (Even those with Caresource and Optima must sign up so that we know the size of our patient panel.)

I'm not sure if I can afford the membership. What should I do?

Prioritizing the membership investment is an important decision.  It’s a HUGE value, but sometimes it’s takes a little thinking outside the box to see that.  For many, simply the reassurance of having a personal connection with a physician who will be there when you need her in a comfortable and convenient way is MORE than worth it.  Beyond that, it doesn’t take much thought to realize that the potential saved urgent care and ER visits with a timely evaluation by Dr. Paige, the peace of mind of having questions answered without spending hours asking Dr. Google, the direct service, the innovative Twine Health app to track your wellness markers and improve your health, the time off work saved because some in person visits can be replaced by virtual visits all adds up to much more than the membership.  In addition, for those who qualify for government assistance and are unable to prioritize their membership fees in their budget, Dr. Paige provides a certain number of memberships on scholarship or sliding scale.  Click here to inquire.  Would you like to give back to your local community by donating all or portion of a membership to someone in need?  Click here to donate.     

As a Signature patient, do I still use my insurance?  

The only insurances that will be billed by Dr. Paige are Caresource and Optima (OhioHealth plans).  All other services are INCLUDED in you membership at no extra charge., so no worries about copays, deductibles or coinsurances.  We still recommend using medical insurance for higher cost care, like hospitalizations.   

What if I don’t have insurance? Can I still be a Signature Primary Care 1.0 patient?

Absolutely!  Because we are not bound by the red tape of insurance, your membership is the same with or without health insurance.

What does Dr. Paige mean by round the clock availability?

You’ll have Dr. Paige’s direct contact information for urgent issues and questions that need to be taken care of after hours.  She’ll do her best to handle them and NOT send you to Urgent Care or ER. That’s it. For real.

Will I still have to see Dr. Paige in person or can I just call for a prescription?

One of the BEST things about Signature Primary Care 1.0 is that it allows you to form a treatment plan with Dr. Paige based on what’s medically appropriate (not what the insurance thinks is appropriate).  That means you can decide together if you need an in-person visit, a phone call, an email, videoconference or even a home visit in some cases.  Of course, in order to diagnose and manage many conditions, nothing beats being face to face, but you and Dr. Paige will decide that together.

I’m still not sure if Signature Primary Care is right for me. How do I know? You are most likely a Signature Primary Care Patient if:

  • You believe that your relationship with your primary care doctor should be a close one based on mutual trust and respect.
  • You are comforted by the thought that if something arises, Dr. Paige will be your first point of contact.
  • You are busy and want your health to fit into to your life in a more convenient way.
  • You are a think outside the box type of personality and are willing to adopt new processes that make sense to you even before large industries recognize their value.
  • You may not be a “techy”, but you are comfortable with the use of technology in other areas of your life and are willing to use newer technologies like email, messaging and video in addition to good old fashioned face to face visits.

Signature Primary Care might not be for you if:

  • You are content with seeing many different providers at urgent cares or minute clinics for small illnesses or injuries that come up.
  • You’d prefer to let large industries (like insurance or hospital systems) set the rules and wait on them to change them before you adopt new processes.  
  • You don’t have access to the internet or email and are not willing to explore this in addition to face to face visits.
