"Katie was born and raised in Anderson Township and always hoped to end up back there as a practicing physician. She went to University of Dayton for her undergraduate degree, where she earned a BS in biology with a minor in English Literature. She returned to Cincinnati for medical school and graduated from University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in 2004, finishing just over a decade after her father! Katie then completed residency training at William Beaumont Hospital in Troy MI before returning home to Cincinnati with her young son to begin practicing as a family doctor in Anderson Township, initially as part of her dad Frank’s practice, and then as part of The Christ Hospital Health Network.
After twelve years as part of a traditional primary care practice, Katie realized that the demands of the insurance companies no longer allowed her to practice the thoughtful patient-centered type of medicine that she loved.
She was drawn to the direct primary care model because it allows her to take the time to strengthen relationships with her patients, the cornerstone of all good primary care practices.
Katie spends her time outside of the office trying to convince her teenage son to play board games, and spending time with her husband and stepson. She is a health and fitness enthusiast, and you will often see her and her husband jogging around Anderson. Katie also loves crime dramas and detective novels, and frequently browses the mystery/thriller section at Joseph-Beth Bookstore looking for the next great novel."
In our Direct Primary Care practice, you matter. You are not just a number; you are an individual with specific goals for your health. We want to help you accomplish those goals. By taking the bureaucracy of insurance out of our primary care relationship, and contracting directly with our patients, we deliver individualized, easily accessible, care to help you meet your goals. While we do not bill insurance, we still recommend patients have insurance for unplanned scenarios such as hospitalizations and surgeries. You can still use your insurance for labs, imaging, and medications at any facility you choose.
Individualized Direct Care from Your Doctor
We offer email, text, phone, and video visits in addition to the traditional in-person office visits. Your monthly membership fee covers all of these and you are not billed extra when seen or heard. We will keep our practice size much smaller than the typical internal medicine practice in order to see you the same day or next day when you are ill or hurt. Our goal is to eliminate the need for our patients to use an urgent care or retail clinic.
With our practice, you can expect to reach your doctor, directly, and receive individualized care with a holistic approach. You should also expect to not feel rushed. With our smaller size, we schedule longer visits to address your needs. With no co-pays, patients can also feel comfortable accessing care earlier than they may have in the traditional system."
