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 want to get back to that 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.
Access to your doctor, virtually 24/7 via phone, text, & e-mail

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.

It's like having a doctor in the family.
MEET DR. LASSEY
Dr. Vance Lassey has lived and worked in the Holton community for 11 years. 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 in Northeast Kansas. 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.

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 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.
