Medical Director, Direct Primary Care

What do you do at R-Health?

I am both the Direct Primary Care medical director as well as a full-time practicing primary care physician in the R-Health network.

What’s your biggest accomplishment at R-Health?

I feel fortunate that I got to be part of the early stages of R-Health to formulate a new, innovative system for patients, physicians and staff.

What’s your pet peeve with traditional healthcare?

How long do I have for this question??? Patients, physicians and other healthcare professionals have become cogs in a big impersonal traditional healthcare system. At R-Health, we are fixing this while allowing our patients to become the central focus of our care and our mission.

What did you do before R-Health?

I have been a solo practicing primary physician since 1998. I transitioned to Direct Care in 2008.

What do you do when you are not delighting R-Health members?

Besides stand-up comedy and Twitter sarcasm, I read a whole lot, cook, exercise and spend time with my family and friends.
