Exemplar Care | Our Story

As a teenager, a back injury persisted months after seeing several physicians. Eventually I saw a doctor who invested the time, attention to detail, and appropriate care that allowed me to heal. I was so inspired by his commitment to truly patient-focused care I decided to follow in his footsteps.

However, today’s healthcare system isn’t the same. Patients and physicians feel rushed, which they say damages the sacred physician-patient relationship.

Still, my goal remains steadfast on giving my patients the best care, access, and service available. Anywhere.

By eliminating insurance restrictions and heavy administrative burdens, I am able to provide my patients the personalized care and attention they deserve. That’s why I started Exemplar Care.

Since graduating from Des Moines University a little over a decade ago, I’ve worked in a clinic as a primary care provider, as a hospitalist seeing inpatients in one of Iowa’s largest hospitals, and as chief medical officer at a regional hospital.

These diverse experiences equip me to finally achieve my goal – providing care focused on YOU.

Exemplar Care is primary care the way it should be – personal, effective, affordable, and transparent. I invite you to find out if membership is right for you. Initial consultations are complimentary and there’s no obligation whatsoever. I look forward to getting to know you!
