Hi! My name is Colleen Peters, and I am happy to join Virginia Direct Primary Care. I am very interested in the Direct Primary Care Model. I was most recently working as a Medical Assistant at a DPC Clinic called Access Medicine in Williamston, North Carolina as part of a 2-year service program. As part of this program, we worked in underserved rural communities and provided care as well as connected uninsured patients with valuable resources such as patient assistance programs for medications and affordable options for specialists, procedures, and diagnostic imaging.
I am returning to Virginia (I am originally from Madison County, VA). I am excited to continue strengthening my passion for Direct Primary Care and utilizing the knowledge that I have gained during the past two years in order to help patients navigate the healthcare system uninsured or underinsured.
