Benefits of Membership

As a patient of Lighthouse Direct Primary Care, you will have benefits not afforded to most patients in traditional practices, at no additional cost:

An introductory, comprehensive evaluation

Dr. Tinsley has taught residents and medical student for years, so he knows a comprehensive evaluation cannot be done in 10-15 minutes. Your first exam will be thorough so Dr. Tinsley can obtain a complete medical history. This exam will likely take about an hour, but may take up to 90 minutes depending on your medical history. We will discuss your overall health, your specific goals, and the recommended health screenings and other preventive actions individualized for your specific circumstances. Subsequent visits will also not be hurried, but will go smoother once he knows you well.

Direct access to your doctor

Most family physicians manage 2000 - 3000 patients. Dr. Tinsley will only manage 600 patients, ensuring quality care and time with him.

Because there is no bad time to receive great care, Dr. Tinsley will be available to you when you need him. Although the office is not open 24/7, he will be available to you after regular business hours. Medical care is provided at a time and place that is most convenient for you. Sometimes this means we will manage your health care needs by phone, secure text, email, or webcam. When he is unavailable (i.e. vacation) he will ensure coverage from a physician he trusts.

More complete, satisfying visits

Dr. Tinsley wants to get to know you so that he can provide the best medical care possible, and he just can’t do that well if you are rushed. You will have time to ask all your questions, and he wants to ensure there is a shared understanding of the visit and your care. Of course, Dr. Tinsley also respects your time, and visits will be tailored to your time restraints as well. This is personalized healthcare, individualized for you, because you deserve it!

Same-day and next-day appointments

With a limited patient panel, you will always be a priority and we will make time for you when you need us. We never want you to feel like you were “squeezed in”. While most family doctors manage thousands of patients, Dr. Tinsley will limit his practice to 600 patients.

House calls

House calls can be made for those too ill to come in to see me if medically appropriate. I have done these in the past and enjoyed these until stopped by insurance companies. I look forward to helping those in need.

Modern technology to access your health care team

In addition to office visits, you will be able to access Dr. Tinsley through phone, secure text, email, webcam, etc.

Price transparency and discounted medications, labs, and imaging

Our pricing is clear and straightforward. Labs and medications will be sold at discounted prices with the prices known before purchasing unlike insurance. The prices are cheaper than with insurance a majority of the time. You will be surprised how much you can save. CTs and MRIs are deeply discounted at an independent facility and are much cheaper than you will pay through your insurance deductible.
