It's like having a doctor in the family.

The holton direct care advantage

Why make the switch?

Switching from the traditional model of medicine to something new and different can be intimidating. But Direct Primary Care is far from a new style of patient care. DPC is a movement of independent physicians who yearn to return to a nearly lost ideal in medical care; we dare to put patients, not profit, first. Remember when doctors used to make house calls and knew all their patients by name? We have realized that ideal patient-centered standard of care. As a member, you'll have access to your doctor virtually 24 hours a day, and that's just the beginning.

Holton Direct Care is an innovative medical clinic in Holton, Kansas. Using the Direct Primary Care model, Holton Direct Care offers our member patients affordable, comprehensive, common-sense medical care with a focus on service and value.

For our patients, this means fewer of the things you don't like about going to the doctor, and more of things you do. We operate on a fee-based membership structure with transparent pricing and no surprises. Forgoing the traditional medical model in favor of the direct primary care model allows Dr. Lassey the ability to spend more time with each of his patients, and members of Holton Direct Care are never charged an office visit charge or co-pay. 

Holton Direct Care is all about getting back to basics. It's no secret the current American medical system is broken. Insurance companies and governmental payers have driven the cost of health care up and the quality down. With a membership to Holton Direct Care, rest assured the priority is your health and not the bottom line.


At Holton Direct Care there is no red tape, no hoops to jump through, and no rushed visits or long waits. Instead, you'll get a health care team  who knows you and cares about you, quality time spent with your doctor, and affordable pricing with no guesswork.

Vance Lassey, MD

Dr. Vance Lassey has lived and worked in the Holton community since 2007. He earned dual undergraduate degrees from the University of Kansas before attaining his M.D. from the University of Kansas School of Medicine. He served as Chief Resident of the Smoky Hill Family Medicine Residency Program in Salina, Kansas where he received awards for teaching, writing,  and the prestigious national AAFP Award for Excellence in Graduate Medical Education


Starting in 2007, Dr. Lassey practiced full-spectrum family medicine at Holton Community Hospital. Unsatisfied with the shortcomings of the third-party payer system, and believing that it was the only way he could stay true to his career-long mantra “Patients First,” in 2016, Dr. Lassey left the traditional Fee-For-Service medical system and founded Holton Direct Care. Utilizing the direct primary care model, he is excited to offer unprecedented access, attention, time, and quality to his patients--for less than a cable or cell phone bill. 

Dr. Lassey has served on or chaired numerous boards, including the KDHE Newborn Screening Advisory Council, the Governor's Fitness Council, and the Kansas Academy of Family Physicians Board of Directors. He is a founding member of the Direct Primary Care Alliance, where he serves as the Vice President on the Board of Directors.  He is also a founding member of the Midwest DPC Alliance


He proudly serves as an Assistant Clinical Professor for the University of Kansas School of Medicine, where he has been the recipient of numerous teaching awards, most recently the 2018 AOA Volunteer Clinical Faculty Award.

Dr. Lassey and his wife, Erin, live in Holton, Kansas with their two children, Luke and Rebekah. Erin owns and operates Penny's, a local coffee and bake shop. Dr. Lassey was born and raised on a farm in Peck, Kansas, and feels right at home in Holton. His hobbies include carpentry and building renovation, enjoying the outdoors, shooting hoops with his kids, and spending time with his family. He proudly serves as an elder at the Holton First Baptist Church. In any time he has left, he enjoys playing the banjo. Poorly.

MEET Daniel jones

Daniel Jones, was born and raised in Topeka, Kansas. He is a nationally certified Family Nurse Practitioner, and Advanced Practice Registered Nurse with experience in Family Medicine, Cardiology, and Urgent and Emergency Medicine. Starting at about age 10, he studied every home remedy book on his grandmother's bookshelf, with the mission of alleviating his family's health problems.

His health care journey was delayed by a career in the mechanical trades, as he owned and operated an HVAC company across Northeast Kansas. He continued his career in HVAC until his graduation from  Washburn and Baker Universities, and he entered the medical profession in 2012.

Like Dr. Lassey, Daniel found the practices of the traditional medical system to be incompatible with the level and quality of care he wished to deliver to patients, so he returned to school for his advanced degree, with the hope he could offer a change away from the “patient factory model” of traditional managed care and overpriced fee-for-service medicine.

Daniel Jones, APRN, FNP-C

Daniel is overjoyed to be part of the Holton Direct Care family, and looks forward to connecting with and caring for the good people of northeast Kansas, treating them the way he'd want to be treated. He currently lives in Shawnee county with his wife Rebecca and his two sons, Christian and Lyric. Rebecca is a registered nurse in Topeka and the boys are well on their way to becoming teenagers.

Daniel enjoys spending time with his family. Together, they enjoy adventures into the woods, waters, and roadways. They attend services at Fellowship Bible Church in Topeka. In his spare time, Daniel has a wide range of hobbies, including tinkering, which provides him with multiple projects he can start and eventually not finish.
