"Our story is one of perseverance and passion to do good and help others using the gifts we've been given. Both of us knew from an early age that our gift was medicine. Barriers came our way and delayed that dream. But a dream deferred is not one lost! We both had successful careers as Clinical Laboratory Scientists when we first met. Quickly we realized that with each other's support we could get to medical school and live our passions as doctors! With a lot of sleepless nights studying, we found ourselves accepted and heading off to medical school. We graduated from Ross University School of Medicine and completed our Internal Medicine residency training in Connecticut (Dr. Khan) and Pennsylvania (Dr. Kochendoerfer). Part of our medical training took us to the island of Dominica where we were able to do philanthropic work for their indigenous population desperately in need of medical care. By being able to provide healthcare needs, void of complicated bureaucratic red tape and health insurance hoops to jump through, we quickly realized that medical care doesn’t have to be inaccessible and complicated. On the island, it was just the patient and the doctor in a partnership making decisions. Medical advice was unbiased and untainted because there was no health insurance influence over the decisions being made. Patients enjoyed our undivided attention and the time we had allowed us to think, research and council them on their particular needs. We realized this was the best way to deliver medicine. During our residency training, it was apparent to us that our healthcare system is broken. Providing the personable and headache-free care that we were able to provide in Dominica, was impossible- lest we changed something. This is when Mosaic Theory MD was born. We have joined the grassroots movement of Direct Primary Care, which allows us to get back to the roots of medicine to foster the doctor-patient relationship as it was always meant to be. Both of us have always been fighters and have been driven. We want to channel that drive and passion into helping our patients take charge of their health while providing them the most cost affective options to do it."
