Frustration-free health care for the whole family

At Coachella Valley Direct Primary Care, we know you want the best health care possible for you and your family without feeling burdened by the cost. Yet, the current health care system operates for the good of profits, not patients.

Dr. Krista Burris and Dr. Michael Kim have been on both sides of this flawed health care system. They’ve struggled through layers of red tape to secure care for aging parents. Their own children get sick and need treatment. And, as doctors for more than two decades, they’ve seen first-hand the frustration of their patients.

Now, Dr. Burris and Dr. Kim are bringing primary care directly to you, the patient. They’re removing the complicated and confusing insurance process.

With a membership at Coachella Valley Direct Primary Care, you’re empowered to make decisions based on what’s best for you and your family, rather than choosing only what’s covered by insurance.

You shouldn’t have to worry about co-pays when your family needs care. Your health deserves personalized attention from a doctor who cares about you, not rushing off to the next patient.

Live a healthier life because you’re able to access medical services when you need them
