For two decades, our founder, Dr. Alex Lickerman, worked at University of Chicago, teaching tomorrow’s doctors the art and science of medicine, taking care of patients, and running a variety of departments, including the Primary Care Group and Student Health and Counseling Services. But struggling through the relentless grind of seeing one patient after another for only 15 minutes at a time convinced him that primary care needed to change.
So in January of 2016, Dr. Lickerman and Rhea Campbell founded ImagineMD, a direct primary care medical practice that combines cutting-edge, evidence-based care with the old-fashioned idea that spending time with patients is the best way to care for them.
Our direct primary care model helps individuals and businesses redefine what health care means. We work to treat the entire patient, body and mind, before illness strikes. We provide 80% of your health care needs, in one office. It’s primary care medicine, reimagined.
