Faith Based Care


Southern Direct Primary Care focuses on care of the whole person- their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Scientific research has repeatedly shown the connection between faith and good health outcomes.

As Christian health care providers, we respect that not everyone believes as we do, but for those patients seeking an environment where we openly acknowledge the impact of our spiritual walk and prayer is commonplace, we hope that you will feel at home. For those patients who are not sure what they believe but have questions or would just like prayer, we are also here for you. We are not perfect and we certainly don’t have all the answers- even when it comes to your health issues- but we believe that God is our healer, referred to as “Jehovah Rapha” in the bible. 

There is a prayer request box in the clinic where you can leave a confidential request for prayer that can also be anonymous and we will commit to praying for you. We would also be happy to pray with you at any time you like during your visit. 

You can also leave prayer requests here by clicking the button below.
