By Action Medicine DPC, P.C.
I grew up in a small town in upstate NY. Originally I wanted to be a physical education teacher. When I graduated I was hired to build and run a pizza restaurant in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It was here I met my wife to be as she was an employee there as well. It was love at first sight and 4 children and more than 40 years later we still dance.
I decided to go to school for physical therapy and since I was taking all of the same courses as the medical students, I applied and was accepted to medical school in Biddeford, Maine. A family practice residency followed in Kingston, NY and then I started and ran a private practice in Arkansas for 4 years while I was the emergency department director as well as this was an obligation to pay back my Public Health Scholarship loan. Practicing medicine in Arkansas was very fulfilling but it was too far from family and friends so in 1990 we started a practice in Holbrook and have been pleased to have an amazing relationship with so many families and individuals over these many years.
Slowly the practice of medicine changed and it became more about the insurance companies, and seeing more patients per day, essentially bringing the insurer into the doctor-patient relationship. I was ready to retire and fade off into the sunset until I read about Direct Primary Care and went to several seminars to learn more. I feel fortunate to have been mentored by several New England doctors who are already doing this.
