New Clinic Offering Unique Twist on Health Care

LAS VEGAS -- A new health care option is available, and it is anything but traditional.

The new Turntable Health Clinic based downtown will be offering health care in a new way when it opens next week.

Online enrollment for the clinic's plans started Thursday.

Doctor Zubin Damania is creating a different approach to primary care through Turntable Health.

"We're really going to promote wellness as opposed to just this sick care system that we currently have," Dr. Damania said, "It is a flat membership like a gym."

For $80 a month for adults, and $60 for kids, the clinic promises fast appointments, 24/7 access to a doctor, and the ability to talk to health professionals by email, phone or video chat.

There is a community feel at the clinic with yoga, healthy cooking classes and access to health coaches.

"We're thinking of actually having a Nintendo Wii so people can get active," Dr. Damania said.

Turntable Health is not health insurance. It is another option to try to stay healthy.

The CEO of downtown's Nacho Daddy restaurant, Paul Hymas, says he is going to take a look at having his staff join the clinic.

"Anything they can do to enjoy life better, they're going to be better employees, better assets to the company," Hymas said.

Jennifer Miller works at Nacho Daddy and looks forward to a change. She says she has struggled to get doctor's appointments, which is part of the reason why Dr. Damania says it is time to shake things up.

Dr. Damania says Turntable Health Clinic will accept health insurance through the Nevada Health Co-op.

The clinic will not accept Medicare and Medicaid patients currently.
