AT GENERA HEALTH DIRECT, WE TREAT MORE THAN JUST SYMPTOMS
Healthcare should be a convenient and relationship-centered experience. Dr. Margarita Castro-Zarraga believes in taking their time with each patient, taking a comprehensive approach to your health, and practicing medicine the old-fashioned way.
Healthcare should also be simple and transparent. For a flat monthly fee starting at $280 a month, you get convenient access to care - in-person, over the phone, or via text. No need to worry about co-pays or deductibles. We offer transparent, affordable, direct-pay pricing for lab procedures and imaging services through local area partners.
Dr. Marga also offers a medically-guided, non-pharmacological set of weight-loss programs focused on creating the right weight-loss mindset and supported by a fitness and nutrition program in partnership with leaders in these fields.

Together, this group shares Dr. Margarita’s love and fulfillment for every emergency room admission prevented, for every early diabetes diagnosed, and for every soul soothed out of addiction and depression. Dr. Margarita is leading a team committed to the kind of care that she always practiced, but this time she intends to scale and spread the good news: the new standard of healthcare is Personal Primary Care starting with Genera.
