APRIL 29, 2015 – Seiling welcomes its newest business, UpFront Health, LLC a direct primary care practice operated by Dr. Phil Berry, which opens at 204 N Main on May 4, 2015. Dr. Berry has called Seiling home for the last 15 years and recognizes that like all Northwest Oklahoma towns, our community has a need for primary care physicians. He has been practicing medicine in Shattuck for years but has decided it is time to start working closer to home. The direct primary care membership model of practicing is something he has been interested in for more than a decade. This type of practice is a new way to deliver health care that cuts out the insurance “middle man” and allows the doctor and patient to make decisions without the influence of insurance companies or Medicare. This model is structured like a gym membership, where you pay a small fee each month to be a member and have full access to your doctor. This covers the cost of all necessary office visits and includes the use of technology.
