Dr. Vance Lassey, MD
About the doctor
Dr. Vance Lassey has lived and worked in the Holton community for 11 years. He earned dual undergraduate degrees from the University of Kansas before attaining his M.D. from the University of Kansas School of Medicine. He served as Chief Resident of the Smoky Hill Family Medicine Residency Program in Salina, Kansas where he received awards for teaching, writing, and the prestigious national AAFP Award for Excellence in Graduate Medical Education.
Starting in 2007, Dr. Lassey practiced full-spectrum family medicine at Holton Community Hospital in Northeast Kansas. Unsatisfied with the shortcomings of the third-party payer system, and believing that it was the only way he could stay true to his career-long mantra “Patients First,” in 2016, Dr. Lassey left the traditional Fee-For-Service medical system and founded Holton Direct Care. Utilizing the direct primary care model, he is excited to offer unprecedented access, attention, time, and quality to his patients--for less than a cable or cell phone bill.
Dr. Lassey has served on or chaired numerous boards, including the KDHE Newborn Screening Advisory Council, the Governor's Fitness Council, and the Kansas Academy of Family Physicians Board of Directors. He is a founding member of the Direct Primary Care Alliance, where he serves as the Vice President-Elect on the Board of Directors. He is also a founding member of the Midwest DPC Alliance.
He proudly serves as an Assistant Clinical Professor for the University of Kansas School of Medicine, where he has been the recipient of numerous teaching awards, most recently the 2018 AOA Volunteer Clinical Faculty Award.
Dr. Lassey and his wife, Erin, live in Holton, Kansas with their two children, Luke and Rebekah. Erin owns and operates Penny's, a local coffee and bake shop. Dr. Lassey was born and raised on a farm in Peck, Kansas, and feels right at home in Holton. His hobbies include carpentry and renovation, enjoying the outdoors, shooting hoops with his kids, and spending time with his family. He proudly serves as a Deacon at the Holton First Baptist Church. In any time he has left, he enjoys playing the banjo. Poorly.
