Personal Care and Easy Access Appeal to Local Resident

"I made an appointment to establish a relationship with a doctor, but I quickly found a true partner in improving and maintaining my health," said Timothy (Tim) Wyman.

Although Tim, 48, had already lost a significant amount of weight, he knew that his family history of heart disease meant he should lose even more and also keep his blood sugar levels in check.  He also knew he could use some help, and decided to try Junction Medical's direct primary care model. That's where he met Anton Grasch, MD, in early 2016.

"Dr. Grasch helped me appreciate that what I eat, how I work out, how I manage stress – it's all connected," Tim said. "He's given me some new ideas and reinforced what I knew."

Tim also appreciates how easy it is to reach Dr. Grasch and make an appointment, which he does every few months for some sort of medical issue. "If I call and he's available, he'll pick up the phone. Generally, I can see him the same day or the next morning. It's so much better than having to wait 10 days like I've had to do at other places. I think it's unbelievably awesome."

Junction Medical doctors have more time to coordinate care, with opportunities to provide support outside of the scheduled appointment time. The full team of doctors, nurses and staff is committed to providing the full spectrum of health and wellness services.

"Dr. Grasch is personable and I never feel rushed when we're together," Tim added. "I believe a person has their fate in their own hands, and right now that means getting down to my ideal weight. His support is extremely helpful."
