Our founder and CEO, Dr. Jay Parkinson, wrote a piece yesterday for Quartz, Do I Really Need a Primary Care Doctor?
Essentially, for 75% of Americans it’s impractical and unrealistic. We live in a mobile society where people change jobs, move to new cities, and change health insurance every few years. We ultimately need a consistent relationship with an online medical service that’s accessible no matter where you live or work or which company provides your health insurance. And that’s why we started Sherpaa— to give people an accessible doctor practice that solves real problems for people and can become your lifelong go-to for all things medical.
