We released the following Press Release to the local media

on November 5, 2013:

A new and innovative option is being offered locally for healthcare.  Priority Health Family Medicine officially opened for business on October 1, 2013.  This Direct Primary Care office offers an affordable option for healthcare based on a membership fee that can be paid on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis.  The membership fee includes unlimited office visits with a minimum of 30 minute time slots, unlimited access and personalized care by the chosen physician in an unhurried atmosphere, in-office testing, injections and more.  Dr. Kristin Newcome and Dr. Timothy Miller have been practicing family medicine in the Decatur area for a combined 27 years.  The priority of the new practice is the physician-patient relationship, with a focus on preventative medicine and a proactive approach to patient and family care from birth to geriatrics.  It is like having a doctor in the family!  

A Public Open House will be held on November 12, 2013 at the new office at 5160 N. Hickory Point Frontage Road in Decatur from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. The physicians of Priority Health Family Medicine invite the public to tour the new facility and meet the physicians and staff to see what benefits this emerging style of medicine has to offer!

May 2, 2014   Concierge Medicine Today, the industry's medical news and information resource, announced that, after careful review, Kristin Newcome MD, of Decatur, IL, was selected as one of only 20 top physicians to be listed as a "Top Doc in Concierge Medicine/Direct Primary Care in 2014" across the country.  Honorees were nominated by their patients, professional peers, staff and others from across the U.S. and are carefully selected and chosen by the Editors at Concierge Medicine Today, who consider such factors as healthcare delivery innovation, clinical excellence, bedside manner, public relations, patient experience, community education and other relevant indicators.

"We are proud of the physicians named to this year's 'Top Doctors in Concierge Medicine' list," notes Michael Tetreault, Editor of CMT.  "The listed physicians, are singular representatives of a modern era of healthcare delivery that is representative of old-fashioned values.  These physicians and their staff, in our opinion, provide some of the most innovative approaches, ideas, educational treatments and therapies available to patients today.  Together, with their healthcare teams, they are bringing patient-care and affordable access to their communities in a new level of excellence."
