Healthcare is a right, not a privilege. We believe in doing our part to eliminate healthcare disparities.


Michele Y. Griffith, MD ABIM AHIM - I founded 21stMD Direct Primary Care (DPC) because I wanted to deliver healthcare that aligned with my belief in treating the whole person- body, mind, and spirit. I believe the quality time needed to cultivate a partnership for achieving your health goals cannot flourish in the traditional healthcare system.


The limited-time spent with a doctor due to high daily patient volume, the focus on disease management rather than prevention, nutrition and wellness, and the time and cost spent on administrative and insurance duties have sidelined the most important part of care: the connection between you and your doctor.



With extra time, we can focus on managing health through lifestyle and individualized care, reaching for medications when necessary instead of as the first line of treatment.

Extended appointment times of 30-60 minutes with a focus of prevention, healthy lifestyle modification and preventive screenings.

Full range of services includes PAP's, breast exams, menopausal symptom consults, STD screening, contraceptive consultation, nutrition, and more.

Many health issues can be cared for from the comfort of your home with your doctor. A great option for those who travel; utilization of health apps and remote monitoring. 

Expedited appointments for urgent issues. Contact us if you need help in the evening or on weekends.

We run a limited selection of Point of Care testing in the office such as strep, influenza,
pregnancy, urinalysis, and EKG. 

We can focus on improving and managing chronic diseases. Healthy lifestyle education and changes are important parts of the treatment plan. 


Members receive greater access to their personal physician. Virtually everything we do in the office is included at no extra cost. Fees listed below are paid monthly. A discount is available for those that qualify. Email info@21stMD for further information. 

There is a one-time registration fee of $95 per individual, or $150 max per household when registering together. We do not have any contract lock-in periods. If you are dissatisfied with your care, we want you to feel comfortable leaving at any time.

The best care comes from an ongoing, unrestricted relationship with your physician. However, we understand that a direct primary care membership is not for everyone. That's why we offer Pay as You Go pricing. This works the same as most other medical offices, you pay only when you interact with our practice (office visits, phone calls, etc). Although you miss out on the unparalleled access offered by our direct primary care membership, you will still get the comprehensive care, excellent service, and price transparency that 21stMD is known for!


To book an appointment, use our online scheduling service below. Please note that Pay as You Go appointment availability is limited so that we can reserve availability for our Direct Primary Care Members.
