Why Am I Doing This?
To provide better care for my patients.
Our healthcare system is broken. The typical primary care doctor has between 2,000 and 5,000 patients. Seriously. That’s not a typo. The average patient visit? 15 minutes. You find a doctor, make an appointment (sometimes several weeks out), drive to the doctor’s office, wait in the waiting room, wait in the exam room, finally see the doctor, have a short visit, leave, drive home, and hope that you’re billed fairly and correctly.
The moment the doctor sees you is the first moment he thinks about you. And the moment you leave he stops thinking about you. Why? He needs to see about 20 patients per day to meet his quota and make a decent living.
And what if you have a follow-up question? What if you forgot to ask something? What if something happens a few days later?You have to leave a message with a receptionist only to get an answer in a few days or be asked to schedule another appointment.
I’m proud to be pioneering this completely new model of primary care. With modern technology, myself and other SteadyMD doctors can each focus on a limited number of patients, anywhere in the world, and provide really great care. We can be your health partner for the long-term, in the same way that you might have an accountant or financial advisor.
