We Leave Behind a Legacy

The question of legacy waits to be addressed at the right time. It forces us to think about the big picture and why we are here.

October 19, 2021

My father once said something to me that was simple and profound: “Shouldn’t we all try to leave the world a better place than we found it?”

What we leave behind is our legacy. As we strive to complete our education, put our skills to use in our jobs, start our families and raise our children – the question of legacy waits to be addressed at the right time. It forces us to think about the big picture and why we are here.

My life’s work started with guiding patients towards better health as a family doctor. When I became a mother, my purpose expanded to raising kind, hardworking children. Along the way, I realized that there is something more that I wanted to do. I dreamed about changing healthcare in the United States. And in 2018, after years of struggling in our broken system, I learned HOW I can change our medical system. Working as a direct primary care doctor (aka DPC doctor), I can give my patients more time and attention. I can also literally LOWER the cost of medical care by offering them inexpensive labs and medications..

My main purpose for sharing about DPC/membership medicine is to get the message out to those who need to hear it. This includes:

People who are frustrated with long waits and 10 minute doctor visits.

People who can never reach their physician with a question or concern.

People who don’t have any health insurance.

People who HAVE insurance but still pay a lot for tests and medications (high deductible plans).

Anyone looking for a better type of healthcare.

Join me in spreading information about direct care to people who need to hear about it. I want this to be my legacy. What will yours be?
