What’s invisible to Dr. Umbehr’s patients, and others who use direct pay or direct primary care (DPC) practices, is that each of them is one of only about 500 or fewer patients the doctor ...

Insurance companies have/are making billions tellling us what Dr we can go to, what care we need or don't need and how long we get to recover.
