Blue Skies Family Medicine, in Mooresville, led by Katherine Weeks, MD, provides care via a membership model called Direct Primary Care which entails an affordable monthly fee instead of billing insurance. It’s highly suitable for individuals with co-ops (some of which reimburse members a portion of the monthly fee), high-deductible health plans or no insurance, allowing them to save money on health care and enjoy timely, no-rush office visits.
The practice, which cares for newborns, children and families plus adults of all ages, offers same-day or next-day visits with the physician which are extended, relaxed and personal with no co-pay required. Standard primary care such as physical exams, weight loss, women’s and men’s health and chronic and acute disease management are included in the monthly fee. In addition, patients can pay wholesale prices for their full line of generic, non-controlled medications, as well as for labs and for other services including joint injections.
A fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians and board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine, Weeks completed medical school at the Brody School of Medicine, in Greenville, North Carolina, and residency at Carolinas Medical Center (now Atrium). She has 23 years of experience in clinical medicine and enjoys the breadth and challenge of family medicine.
Location: 363 Williamson Rd., Ste. 103. Membership prices start at $60/month for adults and $160/month for a family of 4. There is also a one-time enrollment fee of $100 per household.
