Since I’ve started doing Meet & Greets with patients interested in pre-enrolling in my practice I’ve noticed that although they are diverse in many ways, they have certain things in common:
1. They know there are #nomagicpills. In fact, most of them don’t want to be on any pills! They are all the type of people who are willing to do the work of getting healthy and just want the right guidance & support.
2. They are savvy re: the health care system. Many of them have worked in healthcare or had enough experience with it to know how hard it is to get good primary care through insurance & that “wellness” clinics are often just trying to make a quick buck with overpriced, unproven treatments.
3. They are delightful humans! I have had so much fun catching up with my former patients & meeting new ones! Most of these patients are craving a more human connection w/ their doctor & they’re the type of people who make these connections without trying. It’s no wonder they are put off by doctors that come off as cold & robotic.
Basically these are my people.
And for the record, so far 25% of commitments to enroll are MEN – so don’t be shy if you aren’t the “busy woman” I had in mind for Juniper. Everyone deserves a good PCP experience and ALL are welcome 😊
So excited for this little community we’re building ❤️ If you’re in Houston, come join the party!
