I was fortunate enough to go on a medical trip to Honduras in July of 2017. In short, it was awesome. It is what medicine is supposed to be. Being able to treat patients without any other distractions was refreshing. When I returned I quickly longed to have that back. Although I enjoyed working in the Emergency Room, it lacked the satisfaction that I found in Honduras. It gets lost somewhere between the voluminous insurance paperwork and/or the always present legal fears. I decided that not
only would a change bring me more satisfaction, but would be so much more beneficial to the patient as well!
As most physicians, I commonly field multiple texts/emails/phone calls from friends, family members, or acquaintances. These would usually ask me to do anything from diagnosing disease from a blurry picture of an arm (or could be a leg maybe) to the dreaded “Do I need to go to the ER?”. I would always try my best to help them out but soon began realizing how much of a need there was for on-demand medicine. This got me thinking…..(which is always dangerous)
doc was born out of these two concepts. Was it possible to provide quality, personable, and affordable healthcare on demand? I believe that not only is it possible, but it is more beneficial for all. We can have food delivered to us, packages from all over the world brought to our doorstep, and even our groceries dropped off on our porch. Why can’t we have quality healthcare when and where we want it? With doc, now we can.
To provide exceptional and convenient healthcare to all people by standing firm in our values and never wavering from our desire and goal to reflect God in all that we do.
