About Us

We took a leap of faith to start Orcutt Direct Care. We spent years in the healthcare industry, working for hospitals large and small, clinics, and in urgent care. We loved helping people and being a part of their journey to get better, and we loved that people appreciated the care we gave.

We’ve always loved helping people. It’s the most rewarding work we’ve ever done.

But one thing always haunted us: how had this system that was supposed to help people become so incredibly expensive, complex, and inefficient?

Long wait times? Check.
Stupidly complex insurance? Check.
Expensive and half-baked care? Check.
After all that? Here’s a surprise!

The system is broken. It fails people. It’s the exact opposite of what we believe it should be.

We had to do something different.

We’re here to bring back the essence of healthcare: small, human-centered, and laser-focused on helping people lead better lives.

When you take away the time constraints, it’s astonishing what you can accomplish. We’ll work with you every step of the way on your health goals. Something not right? We’ll keep working. No more five minute “one problem only” visits with providers that don’t know you, don’t care to, and don’t even get close to solving your problems.

At Orcutt Direct Care, you get clear, up-front prices. We’ll never send you a bill that you weren’t expecting. We’ll do our best to be there when you need us. We’ll keep looking until we figure things out.

Same or next-day appointments? Yep.
Call, message, or drop by? Sure.
Need a stitch or two? No problem.
Something embarrassing? We’d never tell.
Have this thing? We’ll check it out.
Surprise bill? Nah.

Embarking on this journey has made us love healthcare again.

We hope you’ll join us!
