After years of working in the high-pressure environment of what he calls “corporate medicine,” a Peralta doctor is going retro with a home-based practice that offers same-day appointments.
Dr. Mark Evanko and his wife, Dr. Rebecca Evanko, opened Still Point Medical in August as a direct care practice. Patients pay directly for service instead of going through an insurance company and have the ability to contact the doctor 24 hours a day, seven days a week. He sees the patients, she runs the business.
“We work as a team. We know exactly what’s going on with our patients. It’s a very personalized form of medical care,” said Rebecca Evanko.
She said the emphasis is on the patient and consultations can take as long as needed.
