PERE MARQUETTE TWP. — All Access Care was founded on the basis of serving those in our community who have no access to a primary care provider or for those who have no insurance. All Access Care opened its doors August 2013 and since has seen great community response to those who with healthcare needs. In addition, many others have realized even with insurance and high deductible, that the service and model offered by All Access Care fits into their desire to obtain timely, high quality primary healthcare.

All Access Care was founded by Dr. Michelle Kuster D.O. a board certified physician with extensive experience. Prior to her arrival in Ludington in 2005, she worked for Spectrum Health of Grand Rapids as a flight physician for AeroMed helicopter ambulance. It was her work in various emergency departments over her career that she recognized the need of those who have no access to the healthcare system and wished to change this with the All Access Care concept.

“Healthcare today has a challenging landscape and most experts can agree that there is a need for change,” Dr. Kuster said. “All Access Care’s model is founded on sustainability to provide a service of ‘years gone by’ in the past when quality time is spent listening to the needs of patients and focus on the patient rather than the demands of insurance companies and other interfering entities. With that said, this is what makes All Access Care different. We can provide affordable and transparency in pricing unlike any other model today because they have removed the barriers of insurance companies and entities who interrupt the patient – physician relationship that allows for quality and compassionate care.”

All Access Care offers membership to those seeking affordable and timely care to a healthcare provider. The membership, much like a gym membership gives unlimited access to a provider with an additional benefit of no further cost for a menu of common lab tests. For $55 a month or $550 a year, a patient can receive full comprehensive care. For most people, this is what their insurance premiums are monthly with little regard to access and further additional cost of testing.

“All Access Care is excited to provide service to those individuals and business in Mason County and surrounding areas,” Dr. Kuster said. She invites potential patients to stop in and visit the facility or check out the website at www. where detailed information is available as well as scheduling an appointment on line.
