Thank you for stopping by
I’ve been practicing medicine since 1994, and when I graduated medical school I took an oath to do no harm to my patients. And to me, that includes doing no financial harm.
That’s why I’m passionate about stripping away the myth about how expensive health care is, and the idea that we must have health insurance to have health care. We don’t. Rising deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses mean that even those with health insurance now have to pay for most, if not all, of their health care costs in any given year.
Which also means that now health care is – just like every other service industry in the U.S. – based on a free market. So it’s now up to Americans to become consumers when it comes to health care.
In 2013, I started the Colleyville Medical Clinic where I don’t take health insurance. Instead, I charge reasonable prices and offer great customer service to my patients. I also write a blog called Healthcareonomics.com, where you can see just how the health care and health insurance industries work, and how you can save money by being a smart shopper.
Because everyone deserves accessible, affordable, quality health care. And now you can have it, too.
