Dr. Gupta is a board-certified family physician who has worked in multiple settings in the past 25 years. Her varied experiences led her to become disillusioned with the US healthcare system and unhappy with the way that physicians are forced to practice. In 2018, she learned about the direct primary care (DPC) model from a colleague and decided to open the first DPC practice in her county. After working in an urgent care setting for 5 years, she did not have a patient or referral base in her town, and thus had to build her DPC practice from the ground up. The process of growing her practice rekindled her passion for family medicine and allowed her to learn new skills related to being a small business and independent practice owner. She is passionate about spreading awareness about the DPC model and the state of healthcare, both to her community and to medical students and residents. She is also committed to advocating for independent practice as a way for physicians to find happiness in medicine once again.
