Lauren Hedde

Board Certified in Family Medicine, Direct Doctors


Dr. Lauren Hedde is taking a lead in the healthcare revolution. Direct Doctors, her primary care practice, has only been open for nine months, yet it’s already taken major strides. “I found a real need to offer unique options for patients frustrated with the status quo in healthcare,” she says.

Direct Doctors is an affordable concierge practice in which patients pay a monthly subscription fee as low as $50. The perks include no waiting, same day visits, online scheduling, direct access to the doctor via text and email, and even old-fashioned house visits. “It allows me to practice high quality primary care, treat my patients better, and still have time to get to know them.” Her clients agree. “I’m no longer anxious of being in a waiting room with sick people, or dealing with a doctor who barely knows who I am,” says one happy patient.

Lauren, who lives in West Greenwich with her husband Dr. Jim Hedde and their daughter Etzy Jo, is excited for yet another change. Her partner Dr. Mark Turshen is joining the practice in July. “I believe in my heart our practice is helping patients lead healthier and happier lives,” she says.
