"I have always, throughout my 20+ year career, wanted to provide individualized, God glorifying, patient care. I have been frustrated at various points in my career because I have not been able to do that. I have always had a desire and interest in nutritional and lifestyle approaches to patient care in order to minimize health concerns. Functional medicine incorporates all of this into an individualized approach and with this independent practice I am excited to explore that with you."
"The direct primary care (DPC) model gives family physicians a meaningful alternative to fee-for-service insurance billing, typically by charging patients a monthly, quarterly, or annual fee. This fee covers all or most primary care services including clinical and laboratory services, consultative services, care coordination, and comprehensive care management. Unlike traditional primary care practices, we are a direct primary care facility, and our unique business model makes quality healthcare affordable to people whether they have insurance or not. Direct primary care brings healthcare back to what it once was — a service dedicated to patient care and not doctor paperwork. Direct primary care facilities don’t generally bill through insurance companies, so we are free to work directly with patients without worrying about paperwork, annoying billing codes, and the ensuing insurance battles. Patients receive high-quality care without the high-quality price tag. We offer fee-for-service care, and most typical procedures, labs, and medications are offered at or below regular retail prices. At Mobile Medical Missions, patients are billed directly, which means they pay a monthly membership fee and receive a variety of benefits unheard of at traditional care practices. Patients receive unlimited doctor access, extended and relaxed visits, and a variety of diagnostic and procedural services at no extra cost. We offer high-quality care — no insurance codes, no long wait times, and no worries. Mobile Medical Mission, a DPC clinic serving the Knoxville area, provides exceptional care directly to patients. Direct fee-for-service care ensures that doctors spend less time on paperwork and more time on what matters — the patients."
