About Blue Spruce Health

Blue Spruce Health was started out of Dr. Malik’s desire to embrace his profession as a physician. Devoting himself to medicine required his transition to direct primary care so that he is able to spend more time with his patients. Our mission is to make you love your healthcare experience at Blue Spruce Health. We want to establish the physician patient connection that has been lost in modern medicine.
Good primary care is about access, trust and relationships. Through direct primary care, we are available to you 24/7. We offer value. With the discounts on labs and generic medications, the savings we offer could cover the entire cost of your membership. Visits are not rushed, so we have time to talk and importantly, to listen. Insurance is great when it comes to high cost medical needs. Unfortunately, it only gets in the way for lower cost care like primary or urgent care. By removing deductibles, co-pays or insurance restrictions we can offer you more access, value and time. At Blue Spruce Health, we will help you understand your health journey by developing strong relationships leading to trust and empowerment.
