Working With You to Achieve Your Optimal Health

Direct Family Care of Northern Colorado is a direct primary care (DPC) medical practice. The direct care model eliminates all of the third parties -- like insurance companies and Medicare -- to provide affordable, convenient, high quality medical care directly to you, the patient.  By contracting directly with patients, DPC doctors can focus completely on you and your health. No gimmicks. No surprise charges. No co-pays. Just high quality evidence based health care provided you your own personal physician for an affordable monthly price. One low monthly fee includes virtually unlimited access to your physician when medically appropriate. 

"This place is amazing. Dr. Magruder took the time to meet with me to make sure we were a good fit and explain the level of service they could provide. My first visit was exceptional and we covered all of my concerns very thoroughly. She took the time to listen to me, explain things, and never made me feel rushed. This is what quality, affordable healthcare looks like."

"I highly recommend this doctor! This honestly feels like the first doctor I’ve seen in decades that actually cares about my health to the extent that they will look into things concerning my health while I’m not even present for an appointment. I feel as though my best interests are being thought of and that I’m not just the 10 minute appointment they’re late for."

Chad W. 

"I’ve had a great experience here! Communication is excellent, I’m always able to get an appointment when needed, and Dr. Lentz does absolutely everything to make my experience as easy as possible! Most importantly, Dr. Lentz is compassionate and listens. Thumbs up for the whole team—I have only good things to say!"

What Makes Direct Family Care Different? 

Take a moment to think about all the things you don’t like about going to see the doctor…

  • You take off time from work, but all the doctor gives you is a short, rushed visit … and that’s after waiting weeks for your appointment (or hours in a waiting room).

  • Hidden costs, like surprise tests or medications that (it turns out) your health insurance plan doesn’t cover, and you haven’t budgeted for.

  • Struggling to communicate with your doctor, or being seen by or talking to someone other than your own doctor.


We don’t like this model either! So we opened a clinic designed with you—the patient—at the center.

With Direct Family Care, you can expect:

  • Unrushed visits with your personal doctor

  • Same-day and next-day appointments, in person or via a secure phone/video appointment.

  • Quick responses—call us or text us anytime, and you’ll hear back within hours.

  • Transparent, up-front pricing (And for any care that you need outside our clinic, we will always try to find you the best, most cost-effective options for you.)


With the direct primary care model, we’re invested in your health—your long-term health.
We’ll help you navigate the steps you need to take to achieve your best health.
We don’t just want to treat you when you’re sick. We want you to be well.

Our Doctors Want You To Feel Heard

We want to spend time with you and we want to know your stories. How else can we know what will be the best path ahead for you and your health? Our goal is to help you maintain or achieve the very best health that you can. When appropriate we have time to coach you on lifestyle changes as opposed to handout out medication, and in fact we like nothing more than taking away medications you no longer need. We choose to explain why you should do something instead of just what you should do.
