Meet this Quarter’s Featured Doctor
Nancy Baker M.D.
Dr. Denis Saver, president of the board of the We Care Foundation of Indian River, is honored to announce that Nancy Baker M.D. has been named We Care Volunteer of the First Quarter of 2021. Dr. Baker has had a family practice in Vero Beach for 19 years, and has been a We Care Volunteer for 18 of these years. When asked why she volunteers, she replied, “Ever since medical school the opportunity to provide charity care has been part of the reason I became a doctor. It is so personally fulfilling to help others. Dr. Baker has recently opened a Direct Primary Care practice in Vero Beach, and information about it follows.
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a new model in which patients pay their primary care doctor directly, rather than through their insurance company. Patients pay a simple, flat membership fee straight to the doctor instead of paying an insurance company premiums and co-pays.
The DPC model put the focus back on the patient/physician relationship. Coastal Complete DPC has a limited number of patients within our practice, so the physician can focus more attention on each individual patient.
Your membership fee covers all primary care services including office visits, home and extended facility visits as medically necessary, hospital visits, minor office procedures, joint and trigger point injections, EKGs, diagnostic and wellness exams, phone calls, video conferencing and arrangement to see specialists with direct doctor to doctor communication.
There is little to no wait time and unhurried office visits to address all of your concerns.You most likely will be able to get a same-day or next-day appointment. Video visits are also available which can prevent a trip to office or the emergency room. If a patient requires a home visit, Dr. Baker will make that happen. If you are in a nursing home or ALF, she can see you.
