Jennifer Opdycke is a Physician Assistant from Michigan who discovered carbohydrate restriction about 17 years ago through the Atkins program. She started to introduce it to her patients and found most of them responded positively. But within the practice she was in she was still not able to develop a patient base of her own and she had more and more patients coming to her who were keen to explore the therapeutic low carb or ketogenic option. She then came across an article about other PAs who had opened their own practice and she learned about the concept of Direct Primary Care.
Now she has a thriving practice which integrates other components as well such as emotional, stress and sleep management. This innovative model allows patients to have much better direct access to their health care provider.
