Episode Summary –

A lot of specialties in the medical space have started shifting to concierge services, or direct primary care, as it is mainly known. This is probably the next big disruptor in the health and medical field. But what does it really mean? Why is it valuable to people, and why should people seek these services versus going through the traditional health and medical channels? 

Direct primary care is a cutting-edge health care system that allows patients and providers to interact more directly. Rather than paying for each medical service, patients pay their physicians or practice a set cost per month. This system creates incentives for both parties, as the provider can cut overhead costs and receive higher quality patient care, while the patient receives personalized services from their physician and more control over their own medical decisions.

Dr. Vladimir Barayev shares his journey from traditional to Direct Primary Care in this episode. He talks about why and how he chose this new model, the benefits it offers both patients and physicians, and it’s potential as a major disruptor in the health and medical field.
