Dr. Maryal Concepcion

Bio:

Dr. Concepcion is a Filipinx creator and connector, who discovered her love of being a cradle to grave family physician while at Creighton Med School on a rotation in Superior, NE. When Dr. Concepcion learned about DPC, the bands holding her wings were clipped. Now, she flies free as a Direct Primary Care physician being able to practice medicine how she always wanted to. Read more about her here, click into her social media links, or send in an inquiry, through her SoMeDocs profile, here.

Drs. Kirsten Lin & Natalie Gentile (she/her)

Bios:

 

Dr. Kirsten Lin was born and raised in the Pittsburgh area and currently lives in the North Hills with her family. She graduated from Penn State University with a B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, as well as a minor in Human Development and Family Studies. She went on to receive her M.D. from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and then completed her internship and residency in Family Medicine at UPMC St. Margaret Hospital.

Dr. Lin previously practiced medicine in Western PA for 12 years as an employee of large health systems, where she did not feel able to provide the best possible care for her patients. As a result, in October 2017, Dr. Lin opened Family Matters Direct Primary Care (Family Matters DPC) in Hampton Township, where she provides affordable, personalized healthcare without all the red tape.

Dr. Lin is also a regional lecturer and has been featured on various radio programs, educating healthcare workers as well as the general public about Direct Primary Care services and care options.

 

Dr. Natalie Gentile (she/her) is board-certified in both Family Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine. She is a proud Pittsburgh native from Mt. Lebanon and is grateful to serve the community through the direct primary care model. As an attending physician at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, she saw that the current primary care model in the US lacks continuity, access, and time with patients. Therefore, when she moved back to Pittsburgh, she opened Gentile Family Direct Primary Care, and is now a co-founder, with Dr. Kirsten Lin, of the Direct Care Physicians of Pittsburgh.

She enjoys the work-life balance that being a DPC doc allows, and loves spending time with her husband and their two young children. Dr. G is a yoga and fitness instructor who works closely with the Walk at Home program as an instructor and now teaches at the Walk Run Lift® Studio in the Strip District. Through her work with Walk with a Doc, she leads the Highland Park chapter that has been active since Spring 2020. She is also a member of the Community Advisory Board for the Carlow College Occupational Therapy program and is on the Board for Plant Based Pittsburgh.

Dr. G is regularly engaged in educating the community through social media and was nominated as one of City Paper’s Best Changemakers in 2021.

The opened the nation’s first DPC specific MSO and a celebration of the doctor-patient relationship and physician autonomy.

They started Direct Care Physicians of Pittsburgh in Jan 2022.
