WHO WE ARE
Medicine is becoming less personal. Patients are no longer treated as human beings, but as numbers on a spreadsheet. A list of health conditions. A series of demographic data. Healthcare providers are focusing more on new technology, quality metrics, and codes than listening carefully to patients, looking them in the eyes, and building meaningful, long-lasting relationships. The new world of healthcare is focused on creating massive, fully integrated health systems and data networks so that patients can be tagged, tracked, and monetized. In this new system, the patient is an afterthought, a commodity to be traded.
We reject this new system. MEDICINE IS PERSONAL. Every patient is unique, with a different story to tell. We believe that close, personal relationships between physicians and patients is the key to good health. We believe that all people, especially those in underserved and marginalized communities, deserve full access to affordable healthcare regardless of whether and what kind of insurance they have. We believe that patients are more than numbers. Patients are human beings who deserve empathy, compassion, and individualized attention and respect.
We at My Family Doctor make the following promise: We will always put our patients first. We will always be fiercely independent. We will never be tied to any hospital or health system. We will never be beholden to any pharmaceutical or insurance company. We exist for one reason alone: to serve our patients and improve their lives.
MISSION, VISION, AND VALUES
To improve the lives of our communities through compassion, disease prevention, and patient-centered care.
To lead by example to inspire a personalized model of medicine that puts patients first.
Love What You Do!
