Glacier Direct Primary Care

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a new name for an old idea.


Direct Primary Care is taking off across the country, but new to Montana.  A hallmark of direct primary care is that we do not bill your insurance for care received at our office. You pay a monthly membership fee that includes improved access and longer visits. The idea is to be able to receive timely primary care and pay the provider directly for that care.


You will have a one-on-one relationship with your doctor.  Using a DPC doctor for your primary care helps to keep the “maintenance and small problems” in house.  You can then reserve your insurance for the ” big ticket items” such as x-rays, CT/MRI/ultrasound (imaging), specialty care and hospitalizations.


DPC allows a provider to be their own boss by decreasing time wasted on documentation, coding and billing.  In turn, Dr. Tabor-Manaker can continue doing what she does best – taking more time for you and your health concerns.


As a member of Glacier DPC, Dr. Tabor-Manaker will strive to see you within 24 hours when possible and you will have access directly to your provider via phone, texting or e-mail.  Your physician answering their own office phone? – Yes, just like the good old days.  This is Direct Primary Care.

About the Doctor

Dr. Lexi Tabor-Manaker, M.D.


Dr. Tabor-Manaker is a Board-Certified Family Practice Physician with over 20 years of experience in Family Medicine. She is a graduate of the Michigan State University School of Medicine. She did her residency at Greenville Memorial Hospital in Greenville, SC, where she served as chief resident.


Though born and raised in Michigan, she spent a great deal of time in Montana visiting her relatives there through the years.  Since the age of 9, she talked about “being a doctor in Montana someday with a view of Glacier National Park” and never deviated from making that vision a reality.


Dr. Tabor-Manaker has lived in Kalispell since 2007. During her time in the Flathead Valley she has had great patient experiences working at Family Health Care, Frontier Hospice and the Montana Veteran’s Health Administration. By starting her own direct primary care office, Dr. Tabor-Manaker will be able to again focus on the hallmark of family medicine – the doctor-patient relationship.


Dr. Tabor-Manaker is married with three children and loves the mountains and fresh air.  The family likes to hike, bike, golf, kayak, camp and ski.  She and her husband feel blessed to be able to raise their family in this amazing place.
