Services and Fees

 

Most of what we can do in the Direct MD Austin office is included in your membership. That includes in-office tests, treatments, medications, procedures, and much more. See our member agreement for details. For anything that is not covered by the member fees, we have transparent pricing and reasonable fees. No hidden costs, no mysteries, no bills arriving weeks or months later with "sticker shock" and unexpected charges. 

 

Our doctors are residency-trained and board certified in Family Medicine. We can do things that some doctors offices either aren't comfortable with, or just don't have the time for. Please see our member agreement for details. If you have a question regarding services or pricing, please ask.
