We Fired Our Health Insurance Company

Leaning heavily to this ministry!


So many friends—and friends of friends—have contacted us about our choice for health care that we decided it might be easier to write out our story. Hopefully our experience will assist you in making the wisest choice for your family. This will be lengthy but worth it. I promise.

Yapha MD, Grand Opening of House Call DPC Family Medicine


AUGUST 27, 2014 – The Central Louisiana Chamber of Commerce and Dr. Dana Mays invite you to celebrate the Grand Opening of Yapha Physician Services, LLC.

Because Dr. Mays’ care is provided through house calls, she does not have an “office” per se. So her ribbon cutting will be held at the Chamber Office on Wednesday, August 27 at 8:30 in the morning. We are looking forward to seeing you and celebrating the grand opening of Yapha Physician Services, LLC!

Dr. Mays (or Dr. Dana, as many of her patients call her) is the founder and owner of this unique, new Cenla business. Rather than having her patients come to her, she goes to them, offering them the convenience of not having to leave their homes when they are not feeling well.

Wednesday, August 27

8:30 AM
Central Louisiana Chamber of Commerce
1118 Third Street

How many would have thrown the contaminated plate away without realizing that it was inhibiting the bacteria? I suspect the vacation had cleared his mind and gave his body rest that “serendipitously” led to one of the greatest medical discoveries of all time. Is your mind, body, and spirit prepared to receive the chance opportunities you will encounter today?
