DPC Spotlight: DirectMed

DirectMed DPC was founded 7 years ago by Dr. Katriny Ikbal. She works with Dr. Katie Keller to provide the best family medicine at the best price in Austin, Texas. Together with their head of operations, this DPC works to integrate technology with functional medicine. Read a review from one of their members!

“I am a relatively new patient of Dr. Keller’s and have been BLOWN AWAY by the level of service and care that I have received from her since joining the practice. We are new to the area and signed up without ever having met her in person. Before our first appointment, I had the unfortunate experience of coming down with COVID and she treated me remotely and had me back in fighting shape within a matter of days. She is beyond attentive and caring and is a wonderful doctor. I am blown away by the entire practice. Neer, who runs the business side of things, is incredible as well. It is truly like family over there and I cannot recommend their practice more highly. This is what medical care should be like!”
