BARBOURSVILLE

HUNTINGTON — Cabell County’s first direct primary care office, which treats patients based on a monthly membership rather than billing insurance, is set to open June 12 in Barboursville’s River Place Plaza.

The small, independent On Call Direct Primary Care — staffed by just a receptionist, a clinical nurse, and owner Dr. Wayne Myles — joins the rising direct primary care trend, now numbering a few hundred providers across the country.

Patients pay an up-front membership fee entitling them to unlimited visits with no co-pays and 24/7 access to Myles personally through his phone, cell or email.
