Brief Company History
Paradox Health, a family medicine clinic, was founded in March 2018, in an effort to bring the benefits of Direct Primary Care to the suburbs of Detroit.
Overview of Services Offered
Paradox Health is a family medicine clinic working under the model of Direct Primary Care (DPC) which is an affordable and value-oriented form of concierge medicine. It is purposefully designed to provide you with the best primary care experience at the most affordable price. It operates on a membership model where each patient pays a monthly fee to receive unlimited visits with Dr. Hellman (in-person, or via phone/text/email) as well as a wide array of in office procedures. Membership is capped at 800 patients (national average for primary care doctors is 2400 patients).
Generic medications are ordered from wholesalers and dispensed in the clinic without significant markup. Labs are drawn in the clinic and also at very affordable cash prices via True Health Diagnostics and Quest Diagnostics. Imaging is done at Oakland Imaging Diagnostic Center with cash contracted rates.
• Families are provided discounts for those 0-19yo.
• Employer groups of 5+ also receive a discount of $60 per employee per month regardless of age.
• The membership partners well with a catastrophic insurance plan
I am originally from Troy, and after 5 years out west in Colorado and Oregon, my wife and I decided to head back home to metro Detroit to be near family as we raise our own. When we moved back, I knew I wanted to do something completely different. My time working under the insurance model only deepened my dislike of the current healthcare system that I feel is fleecing the patients for the benefit of the middlemen. I took a page from Buckminster Fuller who said, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” I believe that the DPC model makes the insurance model obsolete. It is the only way to make our healthcare simultaneously affordable, accessible, and of high quality.
