STEVEN HORVITZ, DO
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.
