About Us

Care without the Middleman.

Ed Kauffman established Vancouver Direct Primary Care in 2021 because he believes the patient should always come first. After 10+ years in the medical field, he was tired of seeing care that didn’t value the individual patient. In this model and with the help of modern technology, we know our method gives the best care on your terms

Vancouver Direct Primary Care serves individuals and families, offering affordable and immediate attention to your medical needs. Here, you will receive thorough and thoughtful care under our values of being heard, feeling accepted, and receiving compassionate care.


We built a system that cares for your medical needs without the big corporate feel.

Be Heard.

It’s not just a slogan. This clinic is designed so that you know your medical needs are important to us and that we’re here for you.

Feel Accepted.

This is non-judgmental care. We want you to receive the proper healthcare to meet you where you’re at and make you better.

Experience Care.

We want you to enjoy life, experiencing compassionate care throughout your medical needs. Here, care is kind and thoughtful.
