Dr. Jane Klaes Establishes Membership-Based Primary Care Practice in West Ann Arbor

The beauty of Direct Primary Care is in its simplicity. There’s no health insurance, billing codes, corporations, waiting rooms, or middlemen to worry about – it’s just you and your doctor. It’s the most ‘Direct’ form of healthcare possible.

Ann Arbor Physician Dr. Jane Klaes announced the opening of her independent primary care practice on August 17th.

Following eight years as a Family Medicine Physician at Integrated Health Associates (IHA), Dr. Klaes opened her own clinic with the vision of providing personalized healthcare in the style of an old-fashioned small town doctor.

Set in the country just west of Ann Arbor, Dr. Klaes’ practice operates on a Direct Primary Care (DPC) model where patients pay flat monthly membership fees in return for comprehensive, individualized care. Health insurance is not required nor accepted.

“The beauty of Direct Primary Care is in its simplicity,” said Dr. Klaes. "There’s no health insurance, billing codes, corporations, waiting rooms, or middlemen to worry about – it’s just you and your doctor. It’s the most ‘Direct’ form of healthcare possible.”

Dr. Klaes says that DPC both extends health coverage to people without health insurance and also facilitates stronger doctor-patient relationships than conventional health systems are able to provide.

“My practice is a bit like a throwback to the old days,” she said. “Patients build a relationship with a doctor who knows and cares about them, and they work together towards greater wellness and quality of life. And since patients don’t pay extra for each visit, it’s easier to afford preventive care and get treatment before questions or health concerns pile up.”

Dr. Klaes offers direct access to her by phone, text, email or telemedicine and is available for urgent same-day or next-day appointments in virtually all cases.

She is excited to welcome new patients. Visit https://www.drjaneklaes.com/contact if you are interested in joining her practice.
