Healing Touch Direct Primary Care

At Healing Touch Direct Primary Care, we take a wellness-focused approach to medicine. Through building a long-lasting and trusting patient-physician relationship, we are able to assist our members in transitioning towards their optimal level of health by focusing on prevention. Our practice takes the time to listen to your story and we look for the root causes of your health challenges.



Healing Touch Direct Primary Care mission is to nurture and grow the physician-patient relationship. This happens because our physician takes the time to listen and educate our patients about their healthcare needs. We believe that your doctor should be accessible and your healthcare experience should be simple and enjoyable!

How are we different?

Healing Touch Direct Primary Care is a Direct Primary Care practice. It’s a unique approach to healthcare and our patients love it. So, how are we different?


Fewer patients = more time for each patient

Traditional fee-for-service (FFS) doctors offices typically require a doctor to see over 20 patients a day and spend 5 – 10mins with each patient.  Dr. Ayela prioritizes spending time with each patient to understand their healthcare needs without needing to rush the appointment for her next patient. Members of Healing Touch DPC can discuss several medical issues during their appointment. Even if they are to come back for a follow up, you don’t have to pay anything additional because all visits are covered under one low monthly fee.


No insurance? No problem!

We don’t bill any insurance plans so you won’t have a middle-man in your primary care. Decisions about your healthcare will be made by you and Dr. Ayela, without the impersonal management that comes from third-party payers. Instead, patients pay a monthly membership fee which can save money and covers excellent treatment. Just keep an open mind, and you’ll see for yourself the value of this healthcare delivery model.
