f.a.q.'s > All Questions > How can I learn more about this new style of medical practice?

www.simpd.org takes you to the home page for the Society for Innovative Medical Practice Design, of which I am a member.   My heart was warmed by the universal message from the physicians: not only were they much happier, but their patients were also much more satisfied and happy with the care that they receive. The home page contains the organization’s mission statement and tabs to information specifically aimed at patients. The “find a physician” link takes you to a list of physicians across the country who are using some sort of innovative medical practice design. Many of the physicians listed have links to their websites, which will allow you to see details of various practice models as well as the wide range of fees associated with these practices. Many of these sites note desires similar to mine of wanting to return to the “good old days” of practicing medicine before insurance companies got involved and changed things. Some invoke the name of Marcus Welby, M.D., even though he was a fictitious character, and one physician even put his “Marcus Welby Manifesto” on his site.
