"First and foremost thank you for taking some of your time to stop by and check out our practice. I really do appreciate the interest. My name is James Chandler and I am the provider for Square1. Growing up in Georgetown Illinois, I knew from a young age that medicine and helping people was my calling. That calling came into practice when I graduated from Southern Illinois University in 2007. It has been one heck of a ride since then! Post graduation, I have earned extensive experience in family medicine as well as emergency medicine. In addition to my civilian career, I am currently serving my country as a provider in the Army. All of these opportunities have allowed me to gain skills and knowledge in treating/managing a variety of both acute and chronic diseases.
I am making the switch from the traditional medicine model to direct primary care because I started this life to help people. CEO's, insurance companies, and big business provide an endless roll of red tape to hinder that process (honestly I don't know where they have room to store it all!). By clearing these roadblocks to your health, it gives me the opportunity to really get to know my patients. One of the most important things I have learned is that medicine is not a "one size fits all" process. Each patient is an individual and needs to be treated as such. This practice model will allow the time in the daily schedule to form this kind of a partnership between provider and patient."
"Hope that wasn't too dramatic above, but it's true. If you're ready to have a partner in healthcare who values your time and progress, I’m excited to be the one you choose. You choose affordable plans based on your age, and we become a team.
When you arrive at my office, you’ll notice that I don't have a waiting room. I respect your time, so you will not wait in a waiting room and your appointment will start on time. I'm always available at your fingertips and appointments are always within 24 hours or when it's most convenient for you. I love practicing healthcare this way and look forward to working with you!"
