Our Story

"I started my medical education with a vision of becoming a 21st century version of the old-fashioned neighborhood doctor. Along the way I recognized that would be extremely difficult to realize without forging a new path. The idea of directly providing my community with personalized and high-tech primary care has been many years in the making. My dream became a reality in December 2011 with the opening of NeuCare. Since then, we have built a Direct Primary Care practice that provides affordable, quality care to our friends and neighbors."
