A new at home medical practice, Good Human Doctors, began seeing patients Oct. 1 in Fishers. The one-man operation is the work of Dr. Kevin Wineinger.
“It’s a house call medical practice. It’s something that has cropped up in the bigger cities the last couple of years. It’s essentially a throw back but also something a little new in that you can provide some services we didn’t do back in the day. The idea being that when someone is sick or injured the last thing they want to do is get themselves presentable and go out in public. Sometimes it makes sense for the doctor to come to them,” said Wineinger.
One importance difference is the pricing structure. The practice is flat fee based vs insurance based.
“It’s not insurance based so I think that’s a little different than what people are used to so it’s a $50 flat fee. That’s the cost of most people’s co-pay for an urgent care visit,” said Wineinger.
The practice operations 7 days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. To set up a visit patients can call (844) 459-8840 and ask to speak with Kevin. This will put them in touch with the doctor to set up an appointment. Wineinger can treat a variety of ailments.
“I’m a family medicine doctor so I’m trained to see nearly everything from urgent care to kids to adults to geriatric. I can handle lacerations, broken bones. I’m also a primary care doctor. I’m pretty well trained in taking care of chronic disease like hypertension and diabetes. I think it sets me up to be a jack of all trades,” said Wineinger.
There is a service radius but Wineinger says he handles those outside the area on a case by case basis.
