BIO

Dr. Belen Amat was born and raised in Mexico City, where she studied medicine at the Universidad Panamericana and graduated with honors. She decided to pursue a dual specialty in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at GRMEP in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where she found wonderful people and a great city for her family.

Ever since she was a child, she wanted to be a doctor and help people, especially when they were sick and needed help the most. She put her life-long love of science to work figuring out complex medical issues and preventing illnesses.

After several years of working in large clinics and hospital networks such as Spectrum Health and St. Mary’s, she decided to start her own practice with the idea of reviving the personalized attention she believes is the basis of a quality medical service. Her research into the Direct Primary Care model showed high rates of patient satisfaction and improved medical and wellness outcomes through increased patient access and communication, so she decided to adopt this preventative model of care.

Dr. Amat believes in patient care that is based on a personal relationship between a doctor and a patient, a relationship based in trust and communication. She volunteers for medical mission trips to Honduras and offers service in Spanish for the Spanish-speaking community.

Dr. Amat is board-certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. She is a member of the Michigan State Medical Society (MSMS), the American College of Physicians (ACP), the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).

She opened Direct Primary Care of West Michigan July 2017.

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

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.
