Welcome to Dr. Nina: Direct Pulmonary Care

Direct Pulmonary Care is a healthcare model where patients pay a monthly subscription fee directly to their primary care provider for access to comprehensive lung health services. This eliminates the need for traditional insurance and allows patients to receive personalized and cost-effective care for lung-related issues. Patients benefit from increased access to care, longer appointment times, and a stronger doctor-patient relationship.

How is Dr. Nina's DPC Different?

We are dedicated to connecting with you at your appointment time without rushing, and with full transparency throughout our time together. Our goal is to better understand your needs and your lung health. Appointments are scheduled for 30-60 minutes based on your needs for each appointment. Your care program will emphasize the importance of mind, body and soul- not just giving you a pill or inhaler. Together, we will focus on a healthy lifestyle from food and functional movement, to lung exercises and ongoing support. We take pride in our clear communication with your primary care and specialists team.
