"Dr. Mark grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. He earned his undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from the University of Illinois and his medical degree from Loyola University in Chicago. He completed a family practice residency at St. Vincent Health Center in Erie, Pennsylvania. He furthered his training with an obstetrics fellowship at Brackenridge Hospital in Austin, Texas. He joined Marshall Medical Associates in 2004 where he practiced under the traditional insurance model until early 2017. He opened Whole Family Direct Care in April of 2017 in an effort to bring back the traditional family doctor model. He is board certified in Family Medicine and a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and the Michigan Academy of Family Physicians. In 2016, Dr. Mark became the Medical Director of Oaklawn Hospice in addition to working as a Family Physician."
"Whole Family Direct Care is part of a new model to improve the relationship between the patient and their Primary Care doctor. It follows the Direct Primary Care model that removes insurance from the picture of your health care and replaces it with a low monthly membership fee. This allows Dr. Mark to reduce his patient panel size and remove many of the barriers and intrusions created by insurance companies and government plans like Medicaid or Medicare. With a reduced patient base, Dr. Mark has the ability to focus on what is important, you the patient. The ability to tailor your care to more of your specific needs becomes possible. The ability to keep the simple things simple becomes possible. The ability for longer office visits to address all your needs becomes possible. Whole Family Direct Care is all about getting back to basics. Dr. Mark’s goal is to re-invigorate the Family Doctor/Patient relationship that has been chipped away by the current medical system. He wants his patients to have better access than ever before so that your care becomes number one while working to keep your overall medical costs lower."
