Sarasota, FL – Grace Direct Primary Care aspires to resurrect a nearly forgotten ideal in medical practice where the priority is patients instead of profits. Moving from an insurance-driven healthcare model to one personalized for each patient, the facility is able to prioritize patient care and ensure exceptional services.
While most primary care physicians have between 2,500 and 3,500 patients, Dr. Zaki and others in the DPC model limit their practice to 400 patients. Their approach means patients can spend more time with a physician when needed. It also means that when they aren’t actively seeing patients, they can coordinate care with colleagues in the industry and research the latest advancements in treatments.
Insurance doesn’t pay Grace Direct Primary Care, so patients don’t have a middleman while receiving medical attention. Instead, they make health decisions independently without impersonal management from third-party payers. Even though patients can still use their insurance in most situations for other medical expenses, a low monthly membership fee at Dr. Zaki’s saves them money and leads to better treatments.
For $50 to $350, newborns, children, adults, and seniors enjoy direct communication with Dr. Zaki via phone/text/email, convenient services based on their needs, and same/next-day appointments for thorough examinations. Additionally, members have unlimited access to wellness visits, acute/non-acute office visits, chronic disease management, ADD/ADHD evaluations, ear wax removal, sports/school physicals, and INR adjustments.
Other services include B12 injections, EKG (Electrocardiogram), laceration repairs, smoking cessation support, hormone replacement therapy, medical weight loss programs, mental health management, skin biopsies, and joint injections. Patients seeking home visits, cancer screening, blood tests, or autoimmune disease diagnoses can also sign up at Grace Direct Primary Care. Though memberships cover most medical issues, patients can use cash for labs like Vitamin D, pap smears, complete blood count, and medications like Metformin, Amoxicillin, Omeprazole, or Sildenafil.
Dr. Zaki, a Primary Care Physician Sarasota FL board-certified by the American Academy of Family Physicians, embraces the concept that the body possesses an innate ability to heal itself. Her goal is to keep patients healthy, away from emergency rooms and unnecessary hospitalizations. As a physician passionate about preventive health, longevity, and mental health, Dr. Zaki believes every patient deserves a fierce advocate who transcends the conventional boundaries of healthcare.
Once Dr. Zaki graduated from Nova Southeastern University with the title of Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO), she underwent 3years of intensive medical training at Manatee Memorial Hospital, where she gained valuable experience under the guidance of esteemed local specialists. Her dedication and skills have earned her ‘Intern of the Year’ in 2021 and ‘Mentor of the Year’ in 2022 at Manatee Memorial Hospital.
