Dr. McCoy George is a board certified family physician, a national leader in the growing area of membership and direct primary care practices, and a mentor for physicians bordering on burnout.
Regardless of the setting in which I practiced, I sought to provide that “old-fashioned” patient-doctor relationship – one that is based on genuine caring, mutual respect, and mindful listening. I enjoy working with patients as collaborative partners to create individualized treatment plans and healthier lifestyle strategies. My early experiences with complementary therapies reinforced a holistic and integrative approach, including recognizing the potential value of “alternative” medical theories and treatments.
I opened Wellscape Direct MD, my own Direct Primary Care practice, in downtown Boston in 2015. Goals at Wellscape Direct MD include not only treating and managing illnesses, but also partnering to optimize health and well-being.
