Our mission is to proactively coach and support our patients to discover a healthy life by teaching them their health is a priority. We partner with our patients to deliver the highest quality of care possible by eliminating the hassle of dealing with insurance companies. That’s why we chose the Direct Primary Care (DPC) model for our Gainesville, Florida, clinic. DPC gives physicians the freedom to re-establish the traditional healthcare principles between you and your doctor. Through that relationship, we can emphasize what's most important, you, the patient.
Dr. Karymar del Valle Serrano is a Primary Care Physician who has been practicing for fifteen (15) years. She moved to Gainesville, Florida, nine years ago, where she's been working in underserved areas as a primary care physician and performing minor surgical procedures. Dr. Serrano’s vision to start her own practice was driven by her desire to spend more time with her patients. This is why Direct Primary Care is the perfect model; her time is not limited or dictated by insurance companies. She is passionate about advocating for her patients and believes the best healthcare starts with education and prevention.
She embraces the Hippocratic oath that states: “May I always act as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.”
Dr. Serrano is married to Dr. Pedro J. De León Reyes and is the mother of two beautiful children. The family loves to spend time together and is passionate about music and pets. They also hold strong Christian values and live by the gospel.
As a Christian physician, Dr. Serrano's purpose is to practice medicine by remembering the scripture:
In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: "It is more blessed to give than to receive.
