PDC Evangelist | Coach
Primary Direct Care & Concierge Medicine
Among other things, I am a (Marketing & Business) Coach to DPC doctors. Specifically, I help my clients to:
* Attract more patients
* Achieve greater profitability in their practices
* Find their vocation more personally fulfilling and rewarding.
* Enjoy a better work / life balance.
Beyond this, I’m on a mission to advance the concept of Direct Primary Care across the country and strengthen DPC practices. I want to help practitioners be as successful as possible.
I believe that as people our ultimate purpose in life is to serve one another. This is how we achieve our best destiny. The true objectives we pursue in our interests, our lives, our work, businesses, companies and industries are achieved when we are in service to others.
From time to time however, we lose sight of what’s important and it becomes necessary to to realign the personal and corporate priorities of our lives.
Healthcare in our country is one of those industries desperately in need of realignment. This specific industry is ostensibly more focused on serving the populace than many other business sectors, but it has lost its way.
Healthcare should be easy, effective, and affordable. God has given me a purpose and put me on the frontlines of the battle to realign/redefine this industry to serve people as its priority. Direct Primary Care is the means.
“I help primary care physicians pursue their passion to practice medicine and make a difference in people’s lives.
“As a doctor, your duty is to operate your practice to best serve your patients. These days that requires mitigating the influence of insurance companies and large corporate health conglomerates. You have to adapt how you do business to remain effective and relevant.
“The current healthcare system in the United States is in crisis. Millions of Americans are without health insurance and increasing millions who have insurance still cannot afford care and are going without it. The status quo can’t be sustained.
“For four decades, the “medical industrial complex” has successfully resisted all attempts to restrain and reform itself. Change will not come from within the existing establishment. The government isn’t likely to be of much help either. The medical industry spends more on lobbying than oil and gas, defense, and financial services combined.
“However, disruption of the status quo is inevitable. In fact, the cure for what ails us is already here, rising up from the grassroots and gaining momentum.”

The Hideous Truth About Healthcare Coverage In America
Special Report by Xavier LeMond
A revolt is brewing. More and more Americans are losing the ability to pay for healthcare — even if they have health insurance. Costs have been rocketing out of control for decades and insurance compensation rates have continued to drop for physicians. Doctors have been forced to see an increasing number of patients per day.
For years, doctors have increasingly lost ground to the point of being told how to practice medicine by outside entities led by insurance companies (and followed closely by politicians and bureaucrats). Physicians have seen their ability to treat patients as they see fit greatly diminish along with their ability to earn a decent living or create a suitable, balanced lifestyle.
It's a deteriorating environment on both sides of the fence as individuals and organizations have begun to piece together better solutions for their own healthcare coverage needs, while an increasing number of primary care physicians are "opting out" of the traditional, insurance-centric practice model.
Learn what you can do to avoid the carnage and position your practice to benefit from the changes that are coming.
