INDIANAPOLIS (PRWEB) January 15, 2019
With two decades of medical experience, Dr. Richard Schuster, D.O., has announced the opening of his new Direct Primary Care practice, Schuster Family Medicine and Osteopathic Manual Medicine, where he will focus on enhanced access and healthcare options for his patients. The new practice was built and launched in partnership with Freedom Healthworks, which has helped open and grow nearly a dozen DPC practices in the Midwest. Schuster Family Medicine and Osteopathic Manual Medicine, located in Indianapolis, will offer patients convenient, unrushed, accessible care at a flat, monthly fee without involving the red tape related to working with health insurance.
“My practice offers a rare combination of direct primary care medicine and musculoskeletal care in a format that is affordable and accessible to most people,” said Dr. Richard Schuster. “The best part of practicing medicine the way I do is seeing someone improve and grow, and I want to do that by providing quality, affordable health care and osteopathic manual medicine to my patients.”
Most recently, Dr. Schuster practiced within a well-known regional hospital system that had grown too large to provide the personalized service and deep healing common with direct primary care. Dr. Schuster’s passion for medicine and primary care began more than two decades ago, as the result of enduring a handful of personal injuries. During the healing process, he found a love for osteopathic medicine, completing his bachelor's degree at Kenyon College and his DO at the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine.
“Dr. Schuster cares deeply for the welfare of his patients, and believes in healing them by improving their overall functionality instead of merely treating their symptoms,” said Adam Habig, president and co-founder of Freedom Healthworks. “Incorporating the Direct Primary Care element into his practice, Dr. Schuster is choosing an ideal way to enhance the health of his patients, in both the short and long run.”
The launch of Schuster Family Medicine and Osteopathic Manual Medicine was aided by Freedom Healthworks, which empowers physicians to open their dream DPC practice while enabling patients to find a physician that best suits their needs for a clear, monthly price. As a result, under the DPC model, patients reserve their insurance for large, unforeseen expenses like specialty physician visits and hospitalizations. DPC Physicians serve fewer patients in order to deliver personal, unrushed, focused care to each. Visits are on time, last as long as necessary, (usually between 30 minutes to an hour), and care is available whenever needed, in person or , remotely by text, phone, email, and digital apps.
Dr. Schuster’s office is located at 6117 Allisonville Road In Indianapolis, Indiana. More information about his practice can be found at: SchusterFamilyMedicine.com.
