Dr. Garrick Baskerville

Bio:

Dr. Garrick Baskerville is a board-certified Family Medicine physician and the Founder of METSI Care. He received a B.S. degree in Biology from the Pennsylvania State University. He then received his medical degree from the Pennsylvania State Hershey College of Medicine and completed his residency at Christiana Care Health System in Wilmington, DE. He has practiced in Primary Care, Urgent Care, Sports Medicine, and Occupational Health (Worker’s Compensation) for almost 15 years now. Dr. Garrick is a national speaker and has spoken at the SXSW Conference 2019, was a panelist for the American Academy of Family Practice DPC Summit in 2020 and 2021, and many other times at schools, churches, organizations, and community events.

Dr. Garrick is passionate about providing HIGH QUALITY care that addresses all aspects of what makes us human beings, including MIND, BODY, and SPIRIT. He believes that care should be AFFORDABLE for EVERYONE and that QUALITY CARE takes time. That said, he believes a patient should have time to address their issues and not feel rushed during a visit. At METSI Care, the visits are 30 – 60 minutes if needed. When he practiced in traditional, insurance, based models of care, he was scolded by administrators when he wanted to spend more than 15 minutes with his patients. That didn’t sit right with Dr. Garrick and he told himself back in 2012 that he would eventually start his own practice where he could provide the care he believes in which EVERYONE should have ACCESS. With that, he founded METSI CARE.

Dr. Garrick is also a photographer where he enjoys capturing human expressions of joy and excitement. Dr. Garrick started photography using his dad’s professional Minolta camera after losing his father to Multiple Myeloma in 1997. He used the camera as a way of healing and connecting with his father which he still does today. Dr. Garrick decided to attend medical school because he wanted to be the doctor for other people the way he would have been for is father if he could.

In his free time, he also enjoys creating and cooking healthy recipes as a freestyle cook, and attending live music events, comedy shows, art shows, and performance art/theatre events. He was an extra in Season 3 of House of Cards. He was fabled with learning the bass guitar and hopes to get good enough one day so he can start performing.

Dr. Garrick opened METSI Care in November of 2019.
