“I want to remove barriers to care that have be created by government regulations and insurance company rules. I want to remove the restrictions the typically leave physicians in the traditional healthcare setting buried in nonsense paperwork. I want to spend my time where it counts: with my patients. In removing these interferences, I will return Family Medicine to its root values of clinical excellence and compassion for patients. I promise to deliver unprecedented accessibility, convenience, affordability and patient-centered care. “
