about TLC Family Health

Founded by Douglas M. Cluff, M.D., TLC Family Health is an affordable membership model of Primary Care, AKA Direct Primary Care (DPC – check out the videos above and below!), which kicks costly insurance and other middlemen out of the patient-Primary Care Physician relationship, drastically driving down costs.  Now one of over 1100 similar practices nationwide (up from 140 in 2014), we believe it is the future of Primary Care.  Insurance should be reserved for emergencies, similar to auto insurance. TLC Family Health is Primary Care the way it should be, but until now couldn’t be because of insurance.


DPC can be a great blessing for the self- or uninsured, in addition to business owners who cannot afford to provide insurance for their employees.  However, most of our patients have insurance, but have either realized that their deductibles far exceed our yearly membership fee (and they get a much bigger bang for their buck by joining our practice) or they really enjoy all the perks!  Also, HSAs may be used for the monthly membership fees.

At TLC Family Health, one of our primary goals is to help you achieve health through lifestyleIn fact, “TLC” stands for “Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes” – especially Nutrition and Weight Management (our specialties), Fitness, Stress Management, and Sleeping Well.  We do our best to help you stay or wean off medicine; however, we recommend it when we feel it is best to use.  Come join us on our three-fold mission, and see what magic we can conjure up for you!

how it works:

At TLC Family Health, you pay mainly for the physician’s time and receive all labs, tests, and injections at cost (usually >90% off usual prices, e.g., a cholesterol panel is $3.25; a strep test is $1.19; a B12 shot is $1.00), which removes any incentive to add unnecessary tests or services!  This drastically reduces overall costs, at the same time improving the patient-physician relationship and quality of care. 

At TLC Family Health, you have two membership options (both of which provide the same premium level of care – see below for pricing):

  1. Gold Membership (90% off visits and communications, along with other premium discounts)

  2. Silver Membership (50% off provider visits and communications, along with other discounts)
