TER 010: Even Doctors Can Do It Differently with Dr. Scott Doughty

Jun 20, 2016 | 0 comments

Dr. Scott Doughty has always taken an unconventional path in medicine, but still didn’t feel that he was able to provide the best possible care to his patients. So, he moved his office to an old trophy manufacturing space and did something really different.

Like many caring, dedicated physicians, he was tired of the roadblocks posed by the insurance reimbursement healthcare model. Unlike most of those physicians, he had the courage and foresight to do something about it. By embracing the direct primary care physician model under an annual membership plan, Dr. Doughty has given his patients access to unlimited primary physician care and the ability to establish a true relationship with their provider.

Find out how he managed to do something different in a healthcare environment that so rarely accepts change in this episode of The Entrepreneur Redefined podcast!
