AAFP’s DPC Summit

Spending time amongst like-minded docs at a DPC summit recently was energizing, to say the least. I am thrilled to be part of IAFP’s Direct Primary Care Member Interest Group (MIG) and recently wrote a recap on my experience at the conference.

Mentoring physicians into DPC is an exciting part of building this movement. There is just so much positive energy in the process.

Check out my recap of the conference and the opportunity to present on a panel amongst industry peers! Be sure to come back to my blog for the video mentioned!


Want full access to your doctor? You've got it!

As we sign up new patients each month we're always thrilled to hear from them - whether you're unwell or you would just like some medical advice about something that is nagging, we want to be a resource to you and your family! Don't take my word for it - see what a patient recently sent me!

"I'm so thankful I found Dr. Chisholm!  I have several chronic health conditions, so I've often felt like I'm always running to the doctor.  With Direct Primary Care, I can pay a flat monthly fee and I have direct access to Dr. C whenever things come up through e-mail or phone calls, without having to make an extra office visit.  It's a genius plan for people like me!  I really feel like I have someone "on my side", rather than always having to make an appointment to ask a question.  It's very comforting to know she's accessible, and that she truly cares."

Accessibility is a cornerstone of the Chisholm Center For Health model. As your physician, I want you to call me when you're concerned and I want to help you achieve the health you both want and deserve! 

Her two cents are worth a read!

A recent message from a patient....

Joining Doctor Chisholm’s Center for Health is the best and most empowering health care
decision I have ever made. In Doctor Chisholm I have a true partnership with my doctor and she is always there for me.
In the few weeks since I joined Doctor Chisholm’s practice she has supported and guided me
toward better managing of a wide range of issues. Everything from chronic pain to annual
exams and even insurance options. Every time I contact Doctor Chisholm she gets back to me
immediately and is full of ideas and support! For me, it is Doctor Chisholm’s genuine and
enthusiastic belief in the doctor-patient relationship and the rights of individuals over their health care that puts her above and beyond any doctor I have ever known--and I work in health care! I know Doctor Chisholm is providing me with the best comprehensive and individualized care--uninfluenced by administrative quotas or insurance premiums or pharmaceutical companies.
The Chisholm Center’s direct practice model is a revolution in health care that is completely
patient driven! Goodbye to bureaucratic red-tape, waiting to be seen and never feeling heard,
abstract fees, by-line billing, and feeling lost and over-whelmed in a detached system of shuffled accountability and rapid turnover care. I feel as if a huge burden has been lifted from my shoulders. I feel an unprecedented peace of mind and truly blessed to be a part of the Chisholm Center for Health. I know Dr. Chisholm is there for me and for each of her patients. I know she will provide each of us with the very best direct, professional, and personal care.
Thank you Doctor Chisholm!!

One of the most important things we can do at Chisholm Center For Health is empower our patients to take control. Control your costs of healthcare, control your health, control your healthcare decisions and know WHY! AT Chisholm Center For Health our focus is squarely on YOU, not insurance or pharmaceutical companies! We are as refreshed by the whole concept as you are as our patients! Thank you!

We just love a note from a happy patient!

Last week, as we were all winding down for the weekend, I got a call from a family seeking my advice. Shortly later, I got an email from mom -- 

Just wanted to say that you are wonderful!!! Leaving work today, I found out our sitter, who had been with both kiddos all day had been diagnosed with the flu. By the time I got home my husband had already manage to talk to you about concerns and options, gotten some solid suggestions and seemed reassured about the entire thing. And on a Friday night! Thank you, thank you, thank you. Hope you have a wonderful weekend

We're seriously blessed to be doing what we are here at Chisholm Center For Health - this is the kind of medical practice we envisioned when we started it up! 

Want to learn more about a better way of doing healthcare? Contact me ANYTIME, I'd love to help you on your journey toward better health!

"On the Air!"

Early this week I had a brand new experience! I was given the opportunity to share about Chisholm Center For Health and our Direct Primary Care model on a local radio station.

The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and I'm humbled and grateful to each person that has reached out with encouragement and to learn more about the exciting new movement in healthcare taking place all over this country - and right here in Le Roy, IL with my practice!

In case you haven't had the chance to listen yet - the entire interview (about 16 minutes) is included below! Feel free to share, and, enjoy!
