I was once a factory-farmed physician. Then I escaped.
Six years ago I left my job and invited my community to design an ideal medical clinic. Thousands of physicians nationwide have created similar ideal, patient-centered practices.
Would we ever go back? Nope. Never. But from what did we actually escape? I hosted an “antonym contest” among hundreds of free-range physicians to find out.

- Jiffy Lube
- Premature Consultation
- Primarily Don’t Care Provider

I celebrate my innovative colleagues who are demonstrating daily that it is possible to care for patients–and ourselves.
