I am Dr. Ryan Brang and I am the owner of NorthCountry Health, an innovative approach to healthcare in the Marquette community.
With 10 years of clinical experience as a board certified family physician, I bring a depth of clinical knowledge to the table. This experience has shown me that our healthcare system is broken.
You likely are already aware of the difficulties in the current system. Some of these may include trouble accessing your physician, delays in receiving medications, delays in receiving lab and imaging results, long wait times for appointments and referrals, not enough time with the physician and lack of transparency regarding expected costs. Any one of these issues can result in an expensive and frequently unnecessary trip to the ED or urgent care.
There is a better way. My solution takes the form of Direct Primary Care, which is an alternative to the traditional fee-for-service model. In this model, everything is simplified.
For less than what the average person spends on their cellphone bill, you can have unrestricted access to your doctor by phone, text, email or televisit. Same day or next day appointments can be easily scheduled. All in-office procedures will be free or at wholesale cost for members. Standard lab draws will occur within the office and cost a fraction of what traditional lab services bill. Common medications are available and will be dispensed directly to you at the office. No more copays or expensive office visits.
I can do this because I have reserved the time for a select few patients and can offer extended appointments and expanded access to members. This is possible because I don’t bill insurance and my efforts instead can be focused on providing great patient care. This includes the things that can make the biggest difference in the health of members: nutrition, wellness, preventative medicine, stress management and much more. At NorthCountry Health I am dedicated to empowering patients to optimize their health through an unparalleled doctor/patient relationship.
