DIRECT HEALTH SOLUTIONS

WE ARE PLEASED TO HAVE JESSICA TSANG OF DIRECT HEALTH SOLUTIONS WORKING WITH US, SO WE CAN PROVIDE OUR CLIENTS WITH THE VERY BEST & ACCURATE ADVICE FOR THEIR HEALTH.

We provide all the services of your local family medicine/walk-in clinic with the convenience of being located at your local fitness/wellness center.

We can collect your laboratory samples & we also offer rapid strep tests & urine tests with results within minutes!

Don’t like needles? We make the experience way more comfortable by helping you avoid the waiting room and draw your blood sample with you laying down or sitting. We also only use butterfly needles instead of the larger, standard laboratory needle.

If you don’t have a requisition, that’s not a problem because our family practitioner can write the requisition for you during your visit.

APPROACH

Some providers are focused on the disease or immediate illness rather than the person. Their goal is to fix the problem rather than uncover the cause or how to prevent the problem from happening again.

Our approach to you and your family’s health is focused around health maintenance and disease prevention. As Jessica often says, "rather than focusing on putting out fires, I help my clients find the origin of the flames to control the fire and prevent further (if any) damage".

The best way to help people optimize their health is to assess the person as a whole – What are your barrier(s) to health? What are your strengths to achieve great health? How can we work together to get you to your health goals? Many of my clients work with holistic and traditional health providers and strive to create a team approach in order to optimize your health in a way that is safe and compatible with your goals. We pledge to utilize a nonjudgmental and respectful approach to your lifestyle, beliefs, and values.

Our goal as your family practitioner is to become your partner in health, your advocate in the systemand your cheerleader when you get to where you want to be.

VALUES

Innovation – We will continue to adapt our services to the needs of our clients to provide the best care possible.

Collaboration – It takes a team to achieve great health; we are committed to working with you and other health care providers to optimize your health.

Integrity – We adhere to the highest standards of professionalism, ethics, and personal responsibility.

Compassion – We seek to understand our clients’ circumstances without judgement to learn how to work with them best.

We collaborate with your holistic wellness team because we know that is how we optimize your health.
