The Knoxville News Sentinel published my opinion piece about the value and necessity of Direct Primary Care for Tennesseans in today’s edition.  Thanks to the Beacon Center of Tennessee for helping to promote this piece as well as promoting good legislation that would allow DPC practices to thrive in our state. A good DPC practice provides individualized medical care to its patients  at a dramatically lower cost and   encourages other good physicians to move to our community while allowing a longer, more fruitful, career for those physicians considering early retirement as part of the epidemic of bureaucratic burnout.
