Welcome to the Lisa Larkin, MD, and Associates monthly newsletter, and the first newsletter to our patients and friends since we opened our doors just a few short weeks ago. 

We are so grateful for the support and encouragement we've received about our new practice model and the benefits it provides to the doctor-patient relationship. We're excited to launch this new approach to medicine with you here in Greater Cincinnati, and we look forward to changing the way today's healthcare system works. Together, we hope to provide better care, stronger relationships, and healthier communities.

In our first issue, read up about November's health awareness months, including Sexual Health Awareness (and how to talk with your doctor about sex) as well as Diabetes Awareness month, with tips from registered dietician Amy Paterno. You'll also learn more about our team, upcoming events, and some insight into the DPC model.

Thank you for entrusting us with your care.

Here's to health!

Could Millennials Make DPC Mainstream?
By now you’re read and heard about the benefits of a direct primary care model, and hopefully are experiences these benefits as a member of our practice. And while the model may not be the right fit for every person, it does seem to have benefits and appeal to nearly every age group. This recent article in Forbes discusses the appeal of direct primary care to the Millennial generation – and how this group of progressive young professionals may just be the generation to carry the model forward to begin to heal our fractured healthcare system.
