My passion for putting my patients first and treating them like family led me to learn more about the innovative healthcare model called Direct Primary Care. Direct Primary Care allows me to be that old-fashioned doctor we all once had and wish still existed today. It allows me to be the doctor I trained for years to become, living out my passion of providing high quality, compassionate and personalized care.

About Direct Primary Care
It was during my time as a hospitalist that I realized my idea of being a doctor was no longer possible in the current insurance-driven system. I wasn’t able to spend the necessary, quality time with my patients; treatment decisions were often based on what insurance dictated and not what I thought was medically appropriate, and worst of all there was the disintegration of the doctor-patient relationship. This is when I decided I had to do something different and was fortunate to join Dr. Gold at Gold Direct Care. My love for taking care of patients and my passion for practicing medicine has been rejuvenated.
