We at Hitchcock Family Medicine believe that the business of medicine has become too complicated. The Doctor-Patient relationship has been eroded by third-party middlemen. By returning to a direct relationship, both medically and financially, we are able to return the medical decision making power back to the doctor and the patient; Out of the hands of the insurance companies.
