In Staten Island, a healthcare revolution is underway. Dr. Vladimir Barayev, a board-certified pediatrician specializing in autism, is on the forefront of this movement, championing a new way of delivering care through the Direct Primary Care (DPC) model. In Episode 161 of the My DPC Story Podcast, Dr. Barayev discusses his journey into the world of DPC and how it's redefining the patient-doctor relationship.


Building Strong Foundations With DPC

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is healthcare stripped down to its most fundamental elements — a patient, a doctor, and quality time together. This model eliminates the complexities and constraints of insurance-based practices, replacing them with a simple, subscription-like service where patients pay a monthly membership fee for their care.

Dr. Barayev’s approach to DPC pediatric care is particularly unique. He operates a practice that shuns waiting rooms and operates on an 'one patient at a time' philosophy, with appointments that last an hour and includes a playroom to ease the anxiety often experienced by children in healthcare settings. Staten Island has embraced Dr. Barayev for his commitment to high-quality, personalized healthcare for children, especially those with special needs.

Connecting With The Community

Community involvement is at the heart of Dr. Barayev’s success. He leverages his relationships with local organizations, such as the Grace Foundation, to not only spread awareness about his services but also demonstrate his dedication to the well-being of Staten Island's children. His practice is also the first of its kind across all five boroughs of New York City, setting a precedent for healthcare innovation.


Dr. Barayev emphasizes that understanding community needs is key. His decision to focus on autism evaluations stemmed from a genuine desire to meet a pressing need in his area, showing the power of listening to and engaging with one's community.


Harnessing The Power Of Social Media and Networking

Dr. Barayev has turned to digital tools and platforms, including TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and YouTube, to further propel his practice. These serve as marketing channels and allow him to educate and connect with families beyond consultations. His digital presence reinforces his role as a physician and an accessible resource for families seeking guidance.

Through the effective use of Google reviews and Facebook groups, Dr. Barayev has crafted a marketing approach that resonates with modern-day patients, creating a strong network that drives his practice forward.

Challenging The Status Quo

Throughout the podcast, Dr. Barayev frequently addresses the limitations of traditional primary care settings and how the DPC model offers a viable alternative. He discusses the concept of 'moral injury,' where physicians feel caught between their professional obligations and their desire to provide individualized, quality care. DPC, he argues, resolves this conflict by centering the doctor-patient relationship without the interference of insurance companies.
