About Salt Health

Our state-of-the-art facility is located in Bentonville, Arkansas where we use an innovative and integrated approach to medicine and the latest technological advances, we offer care that is unparalleled in the current healthcare climate.

We believe that all individuals should expect high-quality healthcare and experience the following:

  • first-in-line visits with no wait times
  • no deductibles and zero copays

Also known as Direct Primary Care, the benefits can be profound. Our mission, at SALT Health, is to provide proactive, preventative, and personalized care through our exceptional doctors, staff, and suite of services that meet you at every turn. We have partnered with Dr. Aunna Herbst, DO, a family medicine specialist practicing for over 11 years. As a functional medicine doctor, Dr. Herbst takes a more holistic and integrated approach to patient care, treating the underlying causes of disease, rather than the symptoms. She began her professional journey in 1999 when she graduated from the Trinity College of Natural Health. She graduated from the Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2007 and completed her certification with the Institute for Functional Medicine in 2013. Read more.

And why is this type of direct primary care and functional medicine so important? Did you know the average time a primary care physician spends with a patient is only eight minutes? Frustration from lack of quality healthcare, high deductibles, and overall uncertainty in the industry is at an all-time high. SALT Health offers a truly unique, all-encompassing health center to cut out the confusion and simplify your healthcare options.

Members of SALT Health pay a flat, monthly fee as a retainer contract between the patient and physician to cover primary care medical services and SALT Health amenities such as

  • SALT Spa
  • SALT Fitness Center
  • Massage therapy
  • Certified Physical Trainers
  • Dietitians

This direct-pay model of operating primary care clinics has grown and evolved in the recent years – known as “direct provider care” (DPC) or “concierge medicine.” By eliminating third party payers (government and for-profit insurance carriers) and capping membership, our providers are able to fully focus on the health concerns of each individual. The DPC model has even been endorsed recently by The American Academy of Family Physicians. To find out more about this model of healthcare, read more here.

SALT Health is a personalized, direct-access healthcare facility that focuses on integrated, concierge care for all of its members
The experience of visiting a doctor has changed dramatically over the years and generally not with the patient at the heart of the matter. Our mission is to restore the art of medicine by focusing on preventative care, prompt access, and the personal relationship between patient and doctor that only a member-focused experience can provide.
