Dr. Mike is an expert in Direct Primary Care, and has pioneered the style of Direct Access Medicine© care in Arizona. As many physicians contemplate having to make substantial changes to their practices in order to sustain their careers, they are often ill-prepared to consider the challenges and obstacles inherent to transitioning from an insurance-centered model of practice to a patient-centered model of practice. Dr. Mike is uniquely and expertly prepared to assist his colleagues in making a successful transition to a Direct Primary Care practice that can be customized to accommodate each physician.
Summit Medicine and Pediatrics operates independently from all other medical practices. We prefer to support the efforts of our neighboring medical practices to transition on their own to Direct Primary Care, and we have no desire to purchase, assimilate or franchise our neighboring colleagues’ medical practices. Rather, with a dwindling population of physicians in our communities, we seek to strengthen the independence and long-term viability of our colleagues’ medical practices so that our communities remain healthy and fully satisfied with their healthcare experiences.
