Episode 6: A Doctor Who Says Health Insurance Does Not Equal Health Care

About This Episode

This doctor explains why the practice of medicine is in danger as others, mainly third party-payers and administrators, continue to set the rules and regulations on those who actually provide health care.

Our learning experiences are powered by CMEfy - a platform that brings relevant CMEs to busy clinicians, at the right place and right time. Using short learning nudges, clinicians can reflect and unlock AMA PRA Category 1 Credit.

BIO

 

I am a Filipinx creator and connector. I discovered my love of being a cradle to grave family physician while at Creighton Med School on a rotation in Superior, NE. I trained for residency in Modesto preparing to be a rural family doc and moved to rural Northern CA after residency. I worked in the broken corporate model of medicine because I did not know any other option than to be employed. 

 

Then, I learned about DPC and the bands holding my wings were clipped. Now, I fly free as a Direct Primary Care physician being able to practice medicine how I have always wanted to. With this freedom, I am charged up to share with other physicians the power of the Direct Primary Care model. I will tell any and all about DPC because the model is truly at the core of how we will take back healthcare.

About the Series

Physicians are increasingly looking to different practice models, as burnout rates continue to climb. This series explores the DPC model, in candid conversations with DPC-practice owners themselves. Hosted by Dr. Maryal Concepcion, who is herself a DPC physician, you’ll hear why DPC docs are happy with the practices they’ve built.
