Trivas Family Medicine: Welcoming a new West Seattle Blog sponsor

Today we welcome Trivas Family Medicine as a new WSB sponsor. New sponsors get the chance to tell you about what they offer – here’s what Trivas would like you to know:

Trivas Family Medicinee is a primary care clinic in West Seattle run by Courtney Johnson, MD. Trivas is a Direct Primary Care clinic, which is a membership-based style of care. People become members by paying a simple, affordable, monthly membership fee (similar to how you use Netflix), and then you can access your health care whenever you want or need it! Services include care of all ages, care of acute symptoms or chronic illnesses, physicals and well-child checks, primary-care office procedures, and may include Coronavirus testing.

Members enjoy open access to their personal physician by office visit, video, phone, or text. Same-day and next-day visits are almost always accommodated (and always with the same doctor!). All visits are scheduled for 30 or 60 minutes so you have plenty of time to have your questions answered. If medications, labs, imaging, or specialty care are recommended, then we preferentially refer to lower cost or wholesale options.

Trivas Family Medicine is a great option for people who have health concerns during the Coronavirus crisis! If you have lost your health insurance, didn’t have it to start with, or have a high-deductible plan, Trivas offers excellent care at an affordable price! If you have insurance, but your doctor is on the other side of an impassable bridge, consider getting amazing care locally!

Due to the personalized nature of this style of practice, we limit the inflow of new patients. High volume medicine is not our style. We are, however, eager to help those whose ability to address health concerns has been compromised by this public health crisis, economic downturn, and diminished access to downtown clinics.

You can find more details, signup information for Trivas Family Medicine, and how Direct Primary Care works, on our website at Or send an email or call if you have questions!

We thank Trivas Family Medicine for sponsoring independent, community-collaborative neighborhood news via WSB; find our current sponsor team listed in directory format here, and find info on joining the team by going here.

    My husband, who is 73, and I, 65, have been seeing Dr. Johnson since we moved to Seattle last Summer. She has been amazing: knowledgeable and attentive; the primary care physician we did not think existed. She is the real deal and ever more important in a health care culture increasingly difficult to navigate, less personal and transparent.  She made a real difference in our lives.

    I’m thrilled that you wrote about Dr. Johnson. She has been my doctor since 2009 when she was with Qliance, and I’ve kept her as my doctor even when I moved back to the East Coast for two years for grad school. The subscription model is amazing! I first joined Qliance because I couldn’t afford insurance, but I could afford that. Then realized that I received better care in this model than any other doctors office I’ve ever been to. Since then I’ve continued to pay for that in addition to my insurance. The subscription is so low compared to my insurance, yet my insurance doesn’t cover anything until I reach my $7,500 deductible, but not with the subscription. Anyway, Dr. Johnson is the best and cares deeply about her patients. I’m so glad to see you highlighting such a great HCP!

    Direct primary is a great alternative. I’m a client of Dr Johnson and can recommend her compassion and care.

    Yay!I totally lucked out finding Trivas when I moved here.

    I am in healthcare and know a doc who worked with her, gives her high praise.

    I first became a patient of Dr. Johnson’s at Qliance. I joined because I didn’t have insurance at the time. She has made health care affordable for me and all her patients. She is an amazing Doctor and a wonderful person. She has helped me through more then just healthy issues and Encourages me to be my best. I feel very fortunate to have her as my doctor!

    Dr. Johnson is the best doctor I’ve ever had.  She listens deeply, connects all the dots, and is always available for talking things over.  She keeps working on difficult issues until they are addressed/solved.  She spent hours putting together my past health history so that she could understand completely my current health status.  I know she has my best interests at heart.Peggy O’Donnell

    Thanks Peggy!

    I have been seeing Dr. Johnson for the last year or so and my experience has been nothing but amazing.  She answers her own phone, she replies to messages quickly, her rates are very affordable, and she knows the neighborhood well.  I would recommend her to anyone looking for a different approach to health care.

    To echo the other posts here– I truly love having Courtney Johnson as my doctor.Dr. Johnson is an incredible listener and is very knowledgable about health care and current research.  I was hesitant at first to pay every month without insurance covering any of it, because I generally don’t need to go to the doctor every month.  However, I am extremely pleased that I decided to try out this method of health care.  I love that I do not have to think about a lot of the extra stuff – co-pays, limited visits, pre-approval, etc. –that generally are a part of our  health care system.  I can just make an appointment or call and have my concerns addressed.  This type of health care is very different than what most people in this country have experienced.  It is hard to even explain the peace of mind that comes with knowing that I can just reach out and my doctor will be there for me.If you are at all interested you should contact Courtney Johnson and find out what her practice is about.Wishing you all the best~Tisha
