Howard County Direct Primary Care was established by Dr. Orsolya Polgar in 2015. She is board certified in Internal Medicine and holds a PhD degree.
The office is conveniently located at 8895 Centre Park Drive, Suite E, Columbia, Maryland. We are just off Route 100 providing easy access from Ellicott City, Clarksville, Elkridge, and Columbia.
What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care is an exciting new way of healthcare delivery in which the primary financial relationship is directly between you and your doctor. It is a patient-centered alternative to the traditional fee-for-service model where patients often feel like they are on an assembly line. In direct primary care, your doctor is motivated to keep you healthy, is not limited by insurance company restraints, or burdened with unnecessary documentation instead of focusing on you. Dr. Polgar is accessible 24/7, spends ample time to get to know you, offers individualized care, and advocates for you as you negotiate the rest of the healthcare system. All this, and much more, in exchange for an affordable monthly membership fee which may well be less than what you would otherwise spend on co-pays, deductibles, and unnecessary testing. Our prices are completely transparent, there are no hidden costs.
We offer a complimentary no-obligation meet & greet with Dr. Polgar.
Message From the Office
It is not too late to get a flu shot, please call for an appointment.
We are currently not accepting any new patients. If you are interested in becoming our patient, please call to be added to our waitlist and we will reach out when the panel reopens.
We are now partnering with SederaHealth: an affordable alternative to insurance! Use your Direct Primary Care membership with us for your routine medical care (e.g. physicals, sick visits, medication refills, flu shots, EKGs), and your Medical Cost Sharing (Sedera) membership for the ‘big stuff’ (like surgeries, ER visits, hospitalizations, MRIs, etc.). Both new and our existing patients can take advantage of this partnership. Let us know if you are interested, and we can initiate the process for you. As always, we’d love to see prospective patients for a meet&greet and explain how our and the medical cost sharing membership works.
Visit www.sedera.com/dpc for more info, or give us a call at 443-864-5503 if you have any questions.
Uninsured? Cannot afford health insurance? Not a problem. In exchange for our affordable monthly membership fee, you get excellent acute and preventive care and management of chronic conditions. Through our affiliation with a reputable local laboratory, we can also perform laboratory testing at an incredibly low price. While, it would be more optimal to combine your membership with a low cost (“catastrophic”) insurance plan to use for specialists and hospitals, with the direct care membership you get physicals, office visits, flu shots, EKGs, etc. covered. We will also help negotiate lower prices with radiologists and find affordable medications.
