Amy Scullion M.D.
Preferred Family Medicine is pleased to welcome Dr. Amy Scullion to our team!
Dr. Scullion hails from the great state of Ohio, where she not only played in 4 NCAA Basketball Tournaments but graduated Summa Cum Laude at The Ohio State University and went on to complete her Doctorate of Medicine in 2018. After a family ski trip to Lake Tahoe, she fell in love with the region’s beauty and the endless outdoor activities. After medical school, she entered the Family Medicine Residency program at the University of Nevada – Reno where she served as Chief Resident. Dr. Scullion spent some time working at Preferred Family Medicine while in her third year of Family Medicine residency. She was intrigued by the prospect of practicing direct primary care, where the doctor-patient relationship is more personal and direct. She is excited to build her own practice and put her skills, caring for the entire family, to work. She is now accepting patients and will begin seeing patients at Preferred Family Medicine in September 2021.
Dr. Christopher Highley’s practice, Preferred Family Medicine, brings to Reno, Nevada a new take on an old model of care called Direct Primary Care. This week, Preferred Family Medicine will be hosting an open house in conjunction with a Reno-Sparks Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, July 25th, 2019.
Preferred Family Medicine, a primary care provider in Reno, NV, manages things differently than most healthcare clinics and we would like you to know that we understand the frustrations many people experience with today’s healthcare system. With this insight, we are able to eliminate these annoyances from our patients’ experiences. In no particular order, we bring you “The Top 3 Reasons You’re Frustrated With Your Healthcare”:
Navigating one’s healthcare options for the family can be frustrating, to say the least. Costly traditional insurance routes leave one feeling little more than being “covered”, and certainly a little less in the bank account. With direct primary care (DPC), paired with a high-deductible health savings plan, or a health sharing program, the family may receive care without barriers or additional cost. The end result is significant savings. With open enrollment season upon us, consider alternatives to the standard insurance plan offerings.
Dr. Christopher Highley has opened a new DPC practice in Reno, NV and looks forward to seeing new patients. Read on to learn more about what a DPC is and how this can help those with or without insurance coverage.
What Does DPC Mean?
DPC stands for Direct Primary Care. Dr. Christopher Highley works under the DPC model as a Reno concierge doctor. Using the DPC model, you receive primary health care from your physician and payment for services is paid directly to Preferred Family Medicine with a monthly or annual fee.
