I'd like to emphasize the "direct" in direct primary care. Which means, the patient gets me--their own doctor--directly, not a clerk, nurse, physician's assistant, administrative person, etc. I'll answer their phone calls, return them personally if I can't answer immediately, answer their questions to their full satisfaction, etc. If they come to the office, they see me, and they see me right away, as often and for as long as they need. Doing away with the bureaucracy (the long waits, paperwork, insurance co-pays, prior authorizations, etc) of modern medicine can restore the crucial doctor-patient relationship which has been eroding for years. This will allow for truly great medical care, one patient at a time. That's my mission. --Dr Mike Garrett M.D., Direct MD Austin
P.S. Feel free to use simple or stylized traditional medical imagery (e.g. stethoscope or staff of aesclapius) but please don't be limited by those. If you have a great design idea, go for it! Be creative.
