As I reflect on 2019, I find it fitting that we are coming up on our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY just after the holidays. I am so grateful to the citizens of Fort Mill, SC for the continued support of my little practice throughout the year.
Two years ago, New South Family Medicine didn’t even have a name. It wasn’t a blip on my radar. As I looked at how I want to practice medicine, the Direct Primary Care model came more into focus. The shape of my family medicine practice looked very different than my experiences in large practices in the past.
While I am grateful for my time practicing in Charlotte, I knew I could create something different for Fort Mill – more personal, more accessible , and more transparent. To no end, it would frustrate both my patients and I when we felt “in the dark” about the cost of healthcare. One small business at a time, DPC is changing that.
Prior to owning my practice, I could not have imagined the grit and determination it would take to own a small business. Now that I do, I have such respect for those who are working so hard to build their niche. I’ve loved this adventure and the people I have met along the way, but it is not for the faint of heart!! I am so grateful to have a loving, supportive family that joins me as I venture out into my community to spread the word.
In May of this year, I had the opportunity to get started in aesthetic medicine too! Learning and growing medical aesthetics with Botox and Juvederm fillers has been super fun and has allowed my creative side to flourish. I’m excited to add more to that in 2020.
In October I joined up with the national Walk With A Doc program and started our own Fort Mill chapter! We have set out to bring monthly walks to Kingsley Town Center. I am thrilled to have more community partners join me in 2020 for even more fun! Check out our page to learn more!
Thank you to each and every person out there that has supported us. I want this practice to grow organically. I want people to experience a different type of healthcare and I hope my patients have.
This moment is a time for reflection! 2019 has been a year of growth, both professionally and personally. I am constantly humbled and grateful for the lessons I have learned this year.
We hope all of you have a happy and healthy 2020 and look forward to staying involved in the community, learning from each of you, and keeping our town healthy.
Cheers to each of you,
