Clinic Details:

"I have been working in Kalamazoo, MI for the last 7 years. Last year, a colleague of mine and I decided to open our own DPC practice. The practice was successful due to the philosophy that we had in caring for our patients. We took all the time a patient needed to care for our patients and their health. This led to spinning off the practice into my own new location. I wanted to return back to my hometown to be closer to my family. The decision to start a DPC practice was our reaction to the disappointment we have with the current health care system. I was getting burned out from being mandated to see 20+ patients in a day, which is 'normal' in the current hospital owned practice model of care. I was discouraged because I felt that I never had enough time to build the physician-patient relationship properly. In the traditional hospital owned practice, I actually talked to my patients and constantly ran behind or I stayed "on time" and gave what I felt was unsatisfying care for the patients and myself. I wanted better for physicians and patients. I named this practice Violet Skies Family Health after my daughter and my grandmother. My daughter Violet was named after my grandmother, and her great-grandmother, Violet. This past year, my grandmother passed away at the age of 92. It was her death and my mother's subsequent hospitalization in the ICU that led to my leaving "traditional" medicine and the broken healthcare system. My daughter was so proud when I helped open our first DPC in Kalamazoo. She is even more excited for my new DPC adventure closer to home. I knew I wanted to honor my grandmother and daughter by incorporating Violet into the name of our practice. I just didn't know how. Until one night my husband and I were walking in our neighborhood as the sun was setting. This produced a beautiful Violet Sky. Corey said the name, Violet Skies, and we knew it was the right name for us. A family name. Violet Skies Family Health was created to foster the physician-patient relationship. I will give myself and my patients all the time necessary to provide the best healthcare possible during their office visits. I look forward to growing relationships with my patients and their families in our new family practice."
