Mark and Dr. Gladden open the show discussing some of Mark’s
health and fitness progress, and they touch on how to safely obtain
and use peptides.
Next, they invite Dr. Kevin Wacasey onto the show. After a
background in emergency room care, Dr. Wacasey opened a direct
patient care (also called direct primary care) practice in 2013. He
started this in reaction to seeing his patients paying massive
amounts for basic care, because of their insurance. They discuss a
number of issues related to our “sick care system” that exists in
the U.S., calling for an end to the managed care model. They talk
about the independent healthcare mindset and how patients need to
be educated about what they’re actually paying for. As insurance
dictates what tests or procedures you can or cannot get, you may be
denied the care you really want.
Our current insurance system is profit-driven, not
outcome-driven or patient focused. To be at our best health and
performance, we must take control of our own health care.
