This is Josh Umbehr MD, of Atlas.MD, discussing working directly with his patients, and cutting out the insurance and government bureaucrats. This lowers costs for the patients and increases the quality of care they receive. He delivers low-cost family medicine using a direct-pay membership model.

This is the future of family medicine.
