As you can see, I was not born to conform to this world and its system. I was born to be part of this 'Disruptive Innovation' mission. Therefore, I intend to live up to this title despite criticism, obstacles and confrontations so you, my patients, can get the best of Medicine.
As you may know, Direct Primary Care (DPC) is the model I have chosen to join for this transformation to happen. I want to see my colleagues become the Dr. Marcus Welbys or the Dr. Quinns again . We must not be puppets of neither a dysfunctional healthcare system nor a disconnected government reform.
I believe that with enough patience, persistence, risk taking, outreaching, education, connections with people , sacrifices, and service with a healing heart we can conquer the so-lost medical care. But without our patients raising their voice of discontentment and frustration, our uphill road will be longer, much more arduous and rocky, and who knows... ineffective. After all, it is our healthcare system and access to it that is endangered.
I, as a doctor working as DPC, will voice my commitment to my patients, anywhere and anytime. But I need your help. Would you, my dear patient, care to join me in this endeavor and make our healthcare system one in which you can lean on and be healed?
Thanks for your consideration,
Dr. Maribel Aviles, M.D.
Innova Medical Care, P.A.
