JULY 7, 2017 – In 2012, Turntable Health opened its doors in downtown Las Vegas with one goal—providing preventive healthcare at a reasonable cost. As a direct primary care (“DPC”) clinic, Turntable Health offered unlimited access to primary care physicians for a monthly fee. Only five years after opening, Turntable permanently closed in January 2017, citing an inability to reconcile its practice with the economic demands of the healthcare industry. Following Turntable’s lead, an industry forerunner based out of Seattle, Qliance Medical Management, closed in May. These closures leave medical professionals and patients in Nevada questioning DPC’s viability and, in consequence, its future.
