A native Kansan, Josh Umbehr, 32, started practicing medicine in the Sunflower State three years ago following his residency.
He opened Atlas MD, a concierge family practice, he calls his "dream," to focus more on patients over paperwork and says he couldn't have found a better place to start the practice than Kansas.
"… It is really great to practice in a state that allows doctors to do some experimentation and do a unique model and build and develop that for the benefits of ourselves, our patients, other physicians, and ultimately, even the insurance companies," he says. "It's been wonderful being in a state that allows that flexibility to let us move beyond the status quo."
Umbehr recently shared more with Physicians Practice on what he likes — and what he'd change — about practicing medicine in Kansas.
