We Address your Basic Acute Medical Needs
Consider Pre-R to be your mobile urgent care in San Luis Obispo, CA. Why drive when you’re feeling unwell? Why wait in an urgent care? Why risk contracting hospital infections? If you live in San Luis Obispo call Dr. Sam. We’ll come to you!
House calls are mainly for people who have questions and problems that really don’t need extensive diagnostic study or emergency care. “Would you be able to repair my laceration at my home?” – “Momma just needs a dressing change and she has a hard time getting to see her doctor.” – “My wife is dehydrated with morning sickness. Can you give her some IV saline?”
Unlike concierge medicine, we do not require memberships.
If you have a question and if you are in California or Hawaii, no special signups, just give Dr. Sam a call (570)507-7737. Telemedicine allows us to address simple conditions like rashes, colds, and some minor injuries from a distance via video call.
Perhaps you’ll find some useful tips on our Anxiometer as well to help you determine whether you are facing a true emergency.

Arguing with your insurance company – priceless
We Believe In Simple, Transparent Pricing!
We have a direct pay model, which means that we do not bill insurance companies. We are not a concierge medicine practice, so no membership fees are required. Only after services are delivered and you are feeling better, will we process your payment.
We accept cash, checks and all major credit/debit cards, as well as HSA/FSA cards. For patients who may be struggling financially, do not feel inhibited. We will still try to help.
Insurance info: We are considered an out-of-network provider. Per your request, we can provide you with a superbill (detailed receipt) that you can submit to your insurance company and they may reimburse you. Reimbursement will depend on your individual plan and its benefits/limitations.
Many patients find that after factoring in co-payments, co-insurance, and/or deductibles our fees are lower than the out-of-pocket expenses they would incur at an ER or urgent care facility.
