Welcome to LakelandMD, your friendly neighborhood direct primary care (DPC) practice nestled in the heart of Lakeland, Florida! At LakelandMD, we're all about providing you with the warmest, highest-quality care that feels just like home.
We provide personal, high-quality care for a cost-effective monthly fee where you actually get to see your doctor. This also includes significant savings that we have negotiated with Imaging Centers (X-ray, CT scan, MRI, Mammograms, and more), Clinical Labs (Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, Cholesterol Panel, Urinalysis, and more), and Medications (acute care, chronic medications, and more) through our partner pharmacies.
No more waiting for weeks to get in at the doctor's office and then sitting in the waiting room for hours on end to only be seen for 7 minutes. Say goodbye to the hassle of long wait times and rushed appointments. Dr. Wooldridge, your physician, is here to dedicate ample time to truly listen and address your health concerns. And guess what? You'll have her direct number for those moments when you need her most. We're all about convenience – whether that's in-person, through emails, texts, or even video consultations, whatever suits you best.
In our eyes, you're not just a patient – you're family. And family means everything to us. We're not just a healthcare provider; we're a supportive pillar in our wonderful community. So, why wait? Join our LakelandMD family today and experience healthcare as it should be.

Direct Primary Care or DPC for individuals is affordable, high-quality healthcare that doesn’t require health insurance. Think of everything you expect from a primary family doctor but with easy and convenient access and little or no waiting. Additionally, at LakelandMD you’ll get longer, more complete visits so your doctor can get to know you and effectively help you manage your healthcare needs. You and your doctor can decide what treatments are best for you without insurance company limitations.
DPCs provide better access to your physician, empower an authentic therapeutic relationship, and allow for more comprehensive patient care. Patients pay for their care directly to the physician. Patients have extraordinary access to their physician for a low monthly fee, and physicians are accountable first and foremost to their patients.
Because DPC providers avoid obligations to insurance companies, they are free to spend that time listening to and treating patients. And because DPC providers eliminate the significant overhead costs of participating in insurance, they can pass the savings on to you, the patient – and give compassionate, attentive and timely care at an affordable cost.
Direct Primary Care is an innovative alternative payment model improving access to quality healthcare with a simple, affordable membership fee. No fee-for-service payments.
Typical costs for lab work, medications and testing can be substantial, but with DPC, lab work, medications, and imaging services are billed at cost or a substantial discount, which translates to enormous savings to our members.
No third party billing. Insurance is not required to obtain care at LakelandMD and we do not bill or report to insurance companies. The defining element of DPC is an enduring and trusting relationship between a patient and his or her primary care provider.
