Through our Founder's, Dr. Garrick Baskerville, involvement in the Music, and Art communities of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Austin, Texas, he learned—because of high costs—many Americans did not have proper access to affordable health care. He would treat many with high-deductible plans or those with no insurance at all in a primary care or urgent care setting where they would usually come in when sick or injured and not for preventative or wellness care due to cost. They would simply say, "Doc, I can't afford to. I don't have insurance" or "it's too expensive." This did not sit right with Dr. Garrick and he dreamed that he would one day come up with a better solution to care for everyone, regardless of whether they had insurance or not. He believes that everyone should have access to personal, affordable, and high quality health care.
He believes that when you have access to quality health care that addresses your mind, body, and spirit, you will have improved health, wellness, and improved sense of being. With that in mind, Dr. Garrick founded METSI Care. METSI Care is not just a regular doctors office. At METSI CARE, members have direct access to their own personal, private, concierge doctor that has 14 years of experience. By giving his patients 30-60 minute visits (or more when necessary) where his patient's don't have to feel rushed, he is able to focus on true prevention of disease and treat his patient's health concerns in a more comprehensive manner, shifting away from the typical "sick care" system of traditional insurance when care is often fragmented and focused on treating disease and illness, not prevention.
At METSI Care, the environment is relaxed and comfortable for in-person visits. As a member, if you would prefer a telephone call or video visit, of course we can do that too.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SERVING YOU AND THE COMMUNITY!
