Lisa Magary, dual certified in family practice and pediatrics as a nurse practitioner, is passionate about helping patients maximize their health. After a thorough education including a Doctorate of Nursing Practice from the University of Florida in 2010, a Masters in Nursing in 2006, and years of working in a healthcare system that revolves around insurance starting with home healthcare as a graduate from the respiratory care program at Santa Fe Community College in 1995. Lisa knew there had to be a better way.
Her years in primary care where the expectation was to see each patient for less than 15 minutes pushed Lisa to seek out a new model for health care, a model that put the patient at the center, not billing codes and government requirements. Opening a practice was a dream. But that dream was always at the mercy of rapidly changing insurance laws and heavy burdens placed on health care providers by insurance companies. Late in 2014, after reading an article about direct primary care everything changed as new options came into focus. Options like earning a living and getting to spend a lot of time with patients while making a lasting positive impact on their health. The direct primary care model allows just that.
