Today we get a chance to get into the entrepreneurial mind of Dr Garrick Baskerville!
Like many of us see in our businesses, Dr Baskerville saw many opportunities to increase the level of care in his healthcare practice. Unfortunately, he is in an industry that measures success based upon the number of patients seen in a day, no the care that is delivered. What would you do in that situation?
Dr Baskerville took it upon himself to re-imagine what a medial practice looks and feels like. He launched METSI Care in Austin, TX and is in the process of expanding around the country. His practice provides care with an innovative subscription model that allows patients to enjoy a high level of care and attention without the need for complicated insurance plans.
Dr. Garrick Baskerville is a board-certified Family Medicine physician and the Founder of METSI Care. He received a B.S. degree in Biology from the Pennsylvania State University. He then received his Medical Degree (M.D.) from the Pennsylvania State Hershey College of Medicine and completed his residency at Christiana Care Health System in Wilmington, DE. He has practiced in Primary Care, Urgent Care, Sports Medicine, and Occupational Health (Worker’s Compensation) for the past 14 years.
Dr. Garrick is passionate about providing high quality care that addresses all aspects of what makes us human beings, including mind, body, and spirit. He believes that care should be affordable for everyone and that quality care takes time. That said, he believes a patient should have time to address their issues and not feel rushed during a visit. At METSI, the visits are 30 - 60 minutes, if needed. When he practiced in traditional, insurance, based models of care, he was scolded by administrators when he wanted to spend more than 15 minutes with his patients. That didn't sit right with Dr. Garrick and he told himself back in 2012 that he would eventually start his own practice where he could provide the kind of care he would give to his own family. With that, he founded METSI Care. METSI launched in November of 2019.
Dr. Garrick is also a photographer who enjoys capturing human expressions of joy and excitement. He also enjoys taking both action and slow motion, low light shots. He has photographed artists including Aaliyah, 98 degrees, Mos Def, Colbie Caillat, and Taylor Swift.
Dr. Garrick started photography using his dad's professional Minolta camera after losing his father to bone cancer in 1997. He used the camera as a way of healing and connecting with his father which he still does today.
In his free time, he enjoys creating and cooking healthy recipes as a freestyle cook, and attending live music events, comedy shows, art shows, and performance art/theatre events. He was an extra in Season 3 of House of Cards. He has been taking bass lessons and plans to start voice lessons soon, as he wants to perform in his favorite cities including Austin, Philly, LA, and Nashville!
Dr. Garrick was a speaker at the SXSW Conference 2019 and for the American Academy of Family Practice Direct Primary Care Summit in 2020, as well as other various speaking events in 2020.
