After 16 years of providing quality health care for her patients at her successful private conventional clinic Thanh Ho Taylor, D.O, P.A., Dr. Taylor finally escaped the increasingly burdensome bureaucracy and started Foundation Primary Care, P.A. to work directly for her patients' benefit, not for the insurance companies' benefit.
We strive to build a solid foundation and strengthen the patient-physician relationship in order to best serve patients' needs.
Foundation Primary Care, P.A. functions as a Direct Primary Care medical home clinic which contracts directly with patients (not with their insurance companies) for agreed services at a monthly membership fee. Doctors work for patients' benefit, not having to work with incentives from and for insurance companies. This innovative model also eliminates costly and inefficient insurance and administrative processes.
By cutting out the middle man and administrative burdens, Dr. Taylor can spend her time on direct patient care. Office expenses are also reduced. Unlike high-dollar “concierge” models, patients do not have to pay deductible, co-insurance or copay fees in addition to their monthly fees, and also, any cost savings for the clinic are passed along to her patients.
Patients can continue to use their traditional insurance to cover emergency services and other specialty services and testing where they wish.
Direct Primary Care model supports the free market by offering price transparency so that patients can manage their own healthcare dollars.
Dr. Taylor proudly serves as a founding member and Secretary of the Direct Care Physicians of Greater Houston, established in 2020, to promote high-quality, physician-led healthcare which is affordable and accessible to all, regardless of insurance status.
Dr. Thanh Ho Taylor
Katy, TX has been home to Dr Taylor since 2001, where she lives with her ever-supportive husband, youngest son, and mother to whom she is primary caregiver. Her two oldest sons are at MIT and in Austin. Dr. Taylor's other passions include knitting and crocheting, oftentimes for charitable giving. She also volunteers for Christ Clinic and the Vietnamese-American Medical Association.
Dr. Taylor graduated from Alief Elsik High School, got her bachelor’s degree at the University of Houston, and then her degree as Doctor of Osteopathy "D.O." from the University of North Texas Health Science Center College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Worth. Dr Taylor received her Family Medicine board certification after completing her training at Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine. She maintains board certification through the National Board of Physicians and Surgeons.
She chose the distinction of the osteopathic degree, believing in the osteopathic tenets, that the person is a unit of body, mind, and spirit, and that the body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing, and health maintenance. She also believes in the science of western medicine as well as the compelling data of complementary and alternative therapies. Her areas of interest include over a decade of experience with bio-identical hormone therapy, and more recently, nutrition.
