Notable quotes from Dr. Dickerson’s interview:
Employers have this idea that people want to Blue Cross Blue Shield card. What they really want is affordable high-quality care
90% of care in this country can be performed by a good quality primary care physician.
I look at all this “not-for-profit” hospitals sitting there on the most expensive real estate in Houston using our resources, our trains and buses and roads and bridges and they are not giving back to the community
I’m already thinking of ways I can pivot, and be flexible.
If you believe in something, stick with it.
