I have been a patient of Dr. Brian Erdmann since early 2014. When he and his wife, Dr. Kim Erdmann decided to open their own clinic in Rhinelander, my wife and I elected to follow them, despite their clinic being an 80-minute drive from our home. It is refreshing to be able to discuss your health with your own knowledgeable doctor rather than being shuffled from waiting room to exam room, assistant to assistant, in hopes of a cameo appearance by a real doctor.

I have seen Dr. Brian Erdmann several times at the small family clinic he runs with his wife, Dr. Kim Erdmann.  The clinic offers several payment options.  I pay cash and save over ½ of what I would be billed using the health insurance option.  Most people like myself will never meet their health insurance deductible.  Since I will not meet my high deductible unless I have a major surgery, I pay cash to Dr. Erdmann.  My costs are incredibly reasonable.  This makes total sense to see a doctor that will allow cash payments instead of paying a “middleman” in a non-flexible “corporate care” environment.  Cutting out the HMOs allows Dr. Erdmann to concentrate on his patients, not red tape and insurance company bureaucracy.  Dr. Erdmann’s approach is a logical path to medical problem discovery and solution.  He is easily accessible and takes the time I need to listen to my concerns and responds with information in an easily understood manner.  He cares about his patients and is driven to excel in healthcare delivery.  He has an excellent website with a secure patient portal for appointment notes, communication and follow up.  This is what I believe excellent healthcare is supposed to be like.  – Dennis K., Eagle River, WI

"Recently I had cellulitis.  I let it go for a few days until my leg was very swollen, red and painful.  I emailed Priority Medical Partners on a Tuesday night and was seen by Dr. Kim Erdmann the next morning.  This is typical of them, you have direct and quick contact with the doctors.  After Dr. Kim Erdmann looked it over she had Dr. Brian Erdmann take a look too.  They both decided on the proper antibiotics.  Their concern was obvious.  Dr. Kim went above and beyond explaining to me how serious the situation was and even provided me with an emergency kit just in case it was a DVT; to be sure, they had me go to Aspirus for a Doppler to check for blood clots.  They spent an hour and a half with me and that visit cost me nothing.  I expected a huge bill and had my check book ready.  Dr. Brian came out and reminded me I pay a monthly fee (at the cost of a gym membership) and all my office visits are free.  They have a menu of prices for procedures on their website and they are fraction of the cost I've paid at other clinics.  I'm sure most clinics would not want her prices known out front.  Doctors Kim and Brian Erdmann will answer questions about anything you may be concerned with even if it's unrelated to the problem you went in there for.  Theirs is the most thorough and personal healthcare I've ever gotten.  Since then I saw Dr. Brian on a follow-up after hospitalization.  I was worried about my medications and he went over them and is helping me get 2 of them.  The care Drs. Erdmann provide his stress relieving and reassuring."    -  Phil Babb, Hazelhurst, WI

“I absolutely love the DPC model. I feel like the doctor/patient relationship is much stronger and personal and by cutting out insurance from the equation there is far less money going to waste. I always can get in right away and again feel like the relationship with my doctor is much more personal, I’m not just a number.” - Justin H., Rhinelander, WI
