Welcome to the Maple Health DPC family. We take pride in getting to know our patients and their families so we can customize healthcare and wellness to the whole person. At Maple Health DPC, you can expect flexible access, longer appointment times, less waiting, and a relationship with a doctor whom you know and trust.
Meet Dr. Berry
After years of practicing family medicine in traditional hospital settings, I grew frustrated with the unrealistic patient load doctors were required to maintain for revenue purposes. I watched patients’ needs get pushed off into the scheduling backlog. Access and affordability were shutting people out of getting the care they needed, but I knew there was a better way.
I founded Maple Health as an innovative Direct Primary Care practice with a vision of ensuring accessible, high-quality, and affordable care in a welcoming environment. When I say access, that means you can text, call, or email, and you’ll get a response right away, around the clock. I keep the patient-physician ratio low, so patients get the personalized care they deserve. And our comprehensive service menu includes a discount pharmacy, lab testing, screenings, and in-office procedures.
