Episode #56 - Redefining the Doctor-Patient Relationship (Mindset) with Dr. David Cunningham

Episode #56 Summary:

After studying Nutritional Science at Cornell University in rural upstate New York, David returned to New York City for his medical training at Cornell Medical College.  During his four years of medical school and one year at the Columbia School of Public Health, he realized the field of Family Medicine was a natural fit for his curiosity, his social personality, and his ability to develop long-term relationships based on trust.  David's formal training at UNC-Chapel Hill, NC allowed hi to develop the clinical skills needed to practice the full range of Family Medicine.

After twelve years of practice in Massachusetts, he came to realize that trying to manage complex health issues within the current fee-for-service healthcare system (where doctors have on average 7 minutes per office visit) is setting us up for failure.  After learning about the growing Direct Primary Care movement he immediately knew this was the model of care he was looking for his entire career.  

His professional interests include: making preventive care part of everyone’s life, metabolic disorders including diabetes and obesity, lifestyle and exercise counseling, sports medicine, procedures including skin biopsies/excisions, orthopedic joint injections, emerging technology, and communication enabling healthcare transformation.
