About Assurance Healthcare & Counseling Center

A Membership-based Family Practice in Yakima, WA.

Healthcare is broken. We've fixed it for you.

Assurance Healthcare & Counseling Center was opened to the public in January of 2014 by Richard Edgerly, M.D., Holly Porter, M.S. LMHCA, and Jason Larsen. We (the three owners) saw an opportunity to take back healthcare and begin a practice where the needs and privacy of the patient truly come first.

Our focus is on providing the best healthcare at the most affordable price. We believe this is best done through a simple membership, which enables a closer relationship and better access to your doctor. If you would like to read more about why we believe (and know) this is true, please read our philosophy page.

Our primary care physicians are solely committed to the health, well-being, and privacy of our members. Because we do not contract with traditional insurance companies or government health programs, we are free from having to work within the typical constraints of those entities, which allows us to focus on the doctor / patient relationship. Furthermore, we are able to restrict the number of members per physician, allowing our members to receive better care more quickly.

We believe in offering a complete health solution, which is why we also include brief, solution-focused mental health services as part of our membership. It is our stance that many people can benefit from visiting with a mental health specialist, yet few people seek this resource. Read more about our mental health services to see how you, a loved one, or an employee can benefit from that part of our membership.

Here's the bottom line... We want to provide the absolute best, professional, and personal healthcare at the most affordable price, while honoring the privacy that people deserve.
