What makes Peace Joy Clinic different?

At Peace Joy Clinic (PJC) Direct Primary Care (DPC), our focus is to get to the root of your problems rather than just fixing the symptoms with drugs (unless you want us to), while treating your whole "being" in a holistic approach physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. We offer safe yet effective weight loss & diabetic prevention (our strongest forte), blood pressure and cholesterol monitoring/treatment, narrowing down the diagnosis for your "mysterious" conglomeration of symptoms, personalized counseling against anxiety and depression, individualized stress management, wellness program, life-coaching program on how to live a victorious life, and much more.

There is NO surprise medical bills from our clinic EVER! Prices "à la carte" and transparent. What most people don't know is that your one visit to urgent care may cost you an entire year’s membership in our practice! If you like holistic & thorough approach of primary care, either click Request Appointment, call 918-928-5597, email, or pay $50 for meet & greet 15-minute appointment then go from there!

PJC is here to empower you to take control of your Health & Wellbeing — physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially!

Once you are a MEMBER (regardless if subscriber or nonsubscriber), you'll have:

  • Enhanced availability with convenient same day or next business day appointments, no waiting 2-3 weeks/months just to see your primary care doctor for a sickness or a simple question

  • Prolonged appointments 30 minutes with doctor herself; if the issue is complex, this time allotment can be extended to 1 hour if needed

  • If you have a busy life and need to get back to work, tell our doctor ahead of time, and you'll be in and out with many issues addressed super-fast & efficiently without you feeling rushed. Our doctor strongly believes that time is precious, time is money, and one cannot buy back time; therefore, she respects your time very much.

  • No waiting-room or line, no going back to waiting room after vital signs taken, no sitting by yourself in a room waiting for the doctor

  • No need to repeat the same story to numerous people from checking in to checking out

  • No waiting on the phone for awhile just to leave a message, no being transferred around followed by dropped call. How frustrating it would be to finally reach a person who will take a message and then it takes 3+ days to get an answer back--sometimes never! Well, not so with us!

  • No more "top one or two problems" only each visit, no more being ignored / brushed off / labeled as "hypochondriac"

  • Personal relationship/connection with our caring female Vietnamese physician

  • Peace of mind knowing that your doctor put your safety and wellbeing first--not pushing you out the door or churning you over like you're just a number--because Dr. Linh Stephens doesn't have any student loans debts to enslave her away from her callings in life to help others

  • No surprise expensive medical bills sent after visit, our prices are quoted up front and affordable

  • Save thousands of dollars from unnecessary Urgent Care/ER visits and hospitalizations by preventive care and insightful education

  • Transparent wholesale/heavily-discounted pricing on LABS (up to 94% less, i.e. 1/10th of a cost) for our patients, which are much lower than typical insurance pricing or cash pricing. Annual labs are available for less due to our direct-pricing agreement with local labs

  • No mid-levels (nurse practitioners, physician assistants), instead you get an experienced physician with many years under her belt

  • After one face-to-face establish-care appointment, you will have additional options to do telemedicine visits even when clinics are not shut down for COVID-19.

What make Our Doctors different?

Compassion: We validate our patients’ sufferings and empathize with them. We do NOT dismiss our patients’ concerns; we take them seriously. However, we do NOT hold our patients by the hands or spoon fed them! Most importantly, we never force our patients to do things they don’t want to. Instead, we lovingly and respectfully tell our patients the truths--even if it’s the bitter truths--so that they can see the roots of the problem and the causes of their sufferings. We educate our patients about numerous different treatment options, then give them the authority to navigate their care--under the meticulous & expertise guidance of our physicians.

Advocacy: We help our patients navigate the maze of the confusing healthcare system and its complicated terminologies/jargons. We fought on our patients’ behalf for cash prices of labs, imaging/Xrays, and prescriptions.

Service: We listen to our patients, NOT just "hearing" them. We try our best to be available, flexible to patients’ needs, while being prompt at the same time. Once a SUBSCRIBED member at Peace Joy Clinic, if you have a busy schedule, let us know, and we’ll get you in and out (either face-to-face in office or via video/phone virtual-visits during your breaks at work). You won't be rushed like cattle, because our physicians actually enjoy spending time with you--and are allowed to--averaging 30 minutes at least, sometimes up to 1 hour if required.

"I'm already healthy, seldom go to doctors, why should I get membership?"

Higher Health Goals: Do you want to be conditioned for a new activities or sports? Do you want to start marathon running? Do you just want to lose a few pounds? We can be your partners and coaches! What about mental health goals e.g. how to manage stress better or how to become more resilient mentally? We doctors have the highest mental capacity/resilience and emotional stability despite severe stress in our lives are more than happy to be your life coach. Need financial coaching? We do that as well!

Triage: Everybody is susceptible to getting sick or injured at unexpected times and you want a doctor that will be available promptly. What most people don't know is that your one visit to urgent care may cost you an entire year’s membership in my practice!

Prevention: Regular doctor visits while you are healthy is to ensure you will continue to be healthy in the long run, and to improve your quality of life more than you would otherwise without professional help. Most Americans are afflicted with at least one chronic condition as they grow older — conditions which would have been completely preventable with the help of individualized care from a personal primary care doctor. There are diseases that normal people don't think about that only an experienced doctor would know and diagnose it early for you by looking at your vague conglomerations of symptoms.

How does PJC provide better healthcare for me? ---> click here

  • At PJC, we treat the patient as a whole and not just the disease. We focus mainly on improving quality of life as well as figuring out the root cause of your illness or suffering. We do not mask pain and illness with pain medications, sedatives, suppressants, or stimulants.

  • With our small patient panel being 1/3 or even 1/5 the size of other clinics, the interaction between you and your physician is more intimate and you will not be just another chart or illness to be bandaged. We strive to get to know our patients at a more personal level so we can provide individualized care. Every individual is uniquely different and your treatment plan should be uniquely tailored to you!

  • With our small patient panel, finding an appointment the same day or next day will no longer be an impossibility. Often times, typical clinics will "fit you in" which means you will sit in a room for hours waiting for the doctor to possibly find a few moments to speak to you; their doctor will be rushed to listen to you and try to figure out what is wrong; you are rushed, they are rushed; this ultimately results in frustrations and low satisfaction. At PJC, our small panel and lower volume of appointment slots per day means we can fit you into 30 minute slots or even 1 hour slots if needed.

  • At PJC, we are not pressured by businessmen to push numbers, to see more patients, to generate more revenue, or to meet quotas. The clinic's revenue is already determined by your monthly subscription so there are no quotas to meet, no pressure to do unneeded studies to generate more money, and no hidden fees.

Does Peace Joy Clinic take private insurance? ---> click here

You can use your insurance for EVERYTHING EXCEPT our low monthly membership fee and one-time enrollment fee, which pay for incredible access to excellent care and availability, doctor's personal cellphone # during office hours, and fast appointments, as well as no copay!

People who don’t like avant-garde changes will miss out on a "DPC" movement by ingenious doctors trying to lower the escalating healthcare cost in America! They are missing out on our little "life boat" (clinic analogy), and once our boat “filled up” (very small # spots), we won’t take anymore patients—so if they need our help getting them out of “drowning” (the mess the current health system will put them in, like many patients told us of their past) in high medical bills leading to financial ruins, and health crisis due to delayed access to care, we won’t be able to help them because our boat's space is limited—small but comfortable, sails smoothly, efficiently, and safely, with Dr. Stephens as their “captain” who care about them and protect them from the turbulences of complex medical system and of disease processes. To see why Dr. Stephens is competent and trustworthy click here.

Our office and our providers WON'T file any paperwork with any insurance company, and will NOT waste time dealing with insurance companies and their bureaucracy to get paid--We want to focus on taking care of and spending time with our patients instead. If patients want extra money, they themselves could apply for reimbursements from their private insurance company for what they directly to us (PPO usually does, but HMO unlikely so; to learn how click here)

Some people wanted to sign up with our clinic but the moment we mention we will NOT do insurance claims they are reluctant, but let's do some simple math, shall we? You are paying $1,000+ a month for insurance with a $1,500 deductible, so you can pay a doctor $100/visit for primary care to have only 5 minutes or less with him/her? An older and wiser doctor told me less than 10% of folks meet their deductible in a year, so paying us $75/month x 12 months = $900 for unlimited # visits is still below the deductible. Dr. Stephens said "as a patient myself, I'd pay a small extra fee so my time would NOT be wasted (in the waiting room or on the phone for hours to leave a message for my doctor or being passed around by admin/front desk, without an answer) followed by surprise bills because insurance denied claims, followed by unresolved whatever health issue I have because doctor only spent 5 minutes or less with me. I'd chose quality time & good health any day because you can't buy back these once they are gone!"

In summary, PJC charges either monthly subscription fees or pay-per-visit fees. We strongly recommend you maintain your insurance in case you need expensive medications, radiologies(X-ray, CTs, MRIs...), specialized/expensive labs despite 90% discounts, procedures/surgeries, specialists' involvement, ER/UCC visits, hospitalizations, etc. It's great that you have insurance, we just don't bill it. Keep your insurance for the big/bad and ugly such as emergencies, but don't use it for your everyday medical care/needs because we can keep costs much lower ☺️! You can still use insurance to pay for labs, meds, imaging, referral to GYN, and other specialists—basically the things we don't do in our office. The only thing you can't use your insurance for here is our deeply discounted clinic fees. If you can afford a cup of coffee a day, you can afford our clinic's fees, it's that simple.

What is Direct Primary Care (DPC) ? ---> click here

DPC is an effort by many talented physicians on behalf of patients to take back control of healthcare, to get rid of those that put themselves in between doctors & patients (such as businessmen, administrators, insurance companies, answering services/machines, triage personnels, coders, billers, etc). Doctors and patients are both tired of having to deal with all of these middlemen, and DPC helps to eliminate all of that. At PJC, we strive to offer the most personal one-on-one care.

Once enrolled as a SUBSCRIBED member by paying a flat monthly fee, when you call or text during office hours, you will reach YOUR PERSONAL DOCTOR DIRECTLY, not anyone else!

DPC's advantage is PREVENTION of: delayed medical-care and frustrations from talking to answering services or machines who are not medically trained or who don't know you personally or medically.

Direct Primary Care's general concept is also explained in public youtube videos such as one at which is also embedded below, created by a clinic in Kansas. Below helpful generic infographic video does NOT reflect PJC 100%, for example, Peace Joy Clinic does NOT offer 24/7 access mentioned in the video because we want our physician to have a healthy & balanced family life.
