I have had the honor to speak, consult and design for brands all over the nation.




In the media


I specialize in bringing energy to an event. I have over a decade of experience as a rural-focused family medicine physician in both the traditional fee for service and Direct Primary Care models and this allows me to bring a perspective centered in the the unmatched power of primary care. I also have been featured on the national stage as Emcee of the Hint Summit on Direct Primary Care in 2021, 2022 as well as the Health Rosetta Summit in 2022 and their RosettaFest 2023. I have also moderated panels of physicians at the DPC Summit co-sponsored by the American Academy of Family Physicians since 2021. I specialize in highlighting the story of both patients and physicians and weaving a presentation around those stories. After all, our stories are what bring us together. 

On my podcast, My DPC Story, I interview DPC physician or a DPC practice weekly to ask how each physician found themselves in the situation they were in prior to starting their own practice, how they managed to open and about their tips on success as physicians, entrepreneurs, CEOs and more. By the beginning of season 2, the My DPC Story podcast had reached #89 on the US Medicine charts on Apple Podcasts. By the end of season 3, the podcast had over 155K listens on Apple Podcasts alone (only a portion of our listenership).

Disrupt Outpatient Healthcare with Direct Primary Care with Dr Maryal Concepcion - PGD

Disrupt Outpatient Healthcare with Direct Primary Care with Dr Maryal Concepcion - PGD

What the heck is direct primary care? Or direct care since other specialties are adopting this model. It is a subscription service that gives you access to your doctor whenever you want it. It is disruptive! Sometimes. So we talk to Dr. Maryal Concepcion about her practice, her podcast, why she chose to stop billing insurance companies and give patients access to her 24/7. We also talk about what happens when a patient abuses this service, which patients tend to be interested, and why earlier that day, a weekday, she wasn’t even in the office! Dr. Concepcion is the host of MY DPC Story, where she interviews physicians on their direct care, not always primary care, journey. She went to Creighton Med School, completed Velley Family Medicine residency in Modesto, CA, and then moved to rural Northern California. She started working in the corporate model before starting her direct primary care practice, for which she is clearly an evangelist. This is a podcast that answers the question, “what should we have been learning while we were memorizing Kreb’s cycle?” This is a practical guide for practicing physicians and other healthcare practitioners looking to improve in any and all aspects of our lives and practices.
