Sol Direct Primary Care

Another Nuts & Bolts success story! From 2022 attendee to DPC superstar in less than two years!

I credit the DPC Nuts & Bolts Conference for giving me the confidence and the community to successfully start my direct primary care practice. These physicians are saving healthcare, and I’m glad to be amongst them.” From attendee to instructor, Michelle Cooke, MD


Dr. Michelle Cooke is the founder of Sol Direct Primary Care – Southwest Atlanta’s first Direct Primary Care Practice.
Dr. Cooke is a Family Physician who is passionate about preventive care and lifestyle medicine. She helps her patients achieve their best health with the least amount of medication.
Dr. Cooke has re-discovered the joy of practicing medicine with Direct Primary Care. After nearly 10 years as an employed physician under a corporate, fee-for-service model, Dr. Cooke found herself deep in burnout and searching for a better way to deliver care. It was obvious to her that the current model of care was failing patients and physicians with care models that valued profits over patients.
She launched her practice 6 months after her first Nuts & Bolts Conference in 2022! In Direct Primary Care, Dr. Cooke is able to provide her patients with the high-quality care they deserve while enjoying more work life balance.
Dr. Cooke is dedicated to being a DPC Champion. She hosts DPC events in Atlanta to help connect and support the growing community of DPC physicians. She also shares her thoughts and journey as a writer for DPC News. When she is not seeing patients, you can find Dr. Cooke frolicking in nature, finding her zen on her yoga mat, or dancing to live music!
