As an experienced medical professional I put your health and wellness needs first. I am proud to provide a high quality level of customer service, medical experience, and commitment to health and wellness to all my patients. My goal is to work with you to personalize your health and wellness goals.
I am Lawrence DeWitte, PA-C, your provider with Pri-Med. I am a licensed healthcare provider in the state of Tennessee and maintain Certification through the National Commission On Certification of Physician Assistants. I have a collaborating physician, Susan Reyes, MD, who is available remotely.
Ideally I would prefer to personally visit and examine all my new patients. The current COVID-19 epidemic renders this inadvisable. If medically indicated I will handle as much of your healthcare by phone (telemedicine) or by electronic messaging. If a face-to -face is warranted we can arrange a visit in your home (or workplace if there is adequate privacy). If pre-arranged, a medical office suite visit in NE Knoxville can be available.
Telemedicine allows health care professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients at a distance using telecommunications technology. This approach has been undergoing an evolution in the last decade but is now surging to the forefront due to the COVID-19 epidemic and is being promoted by the Government as an essential way to control the spread of disease.
Pri-Med Concierge Care is a membership model of healthcare that allows me to treat you without the constraints of a traditional insurance-based practice. Pri-Med Concierge Care is not an insurance plan and does not accept health insurance or Medicaid. You can maintain your current insurance if you want and still be a member of Pri-Med Concierge Care (PMCC). Usually a visit with PMCC will be more economical than a healthcare visit utilizing traditional insurance. With PMCC there is an affordable monthly fee with convenient automatic payments from your bank account or credit card. There are no co-pays or deductibles to meet. You have direct contact with your provider without communicating through staff, long wait times, and rushed office visits.
