Chris Larson had been working as an investment banker for a couple of years when he decided to become a doctor. Having observed the poor level of treatment his loved ones were receiving, and believing that there was a better way to help people, he left his finance career behind and enrolled in medical school.
“The doctors that were treating my loved ones are not bad doctors. I think it’s the system that’s bad,” Larson explains. “A lot of family physicians would love to spend 30 minutes to an hour with their patients and discuss lifestyle changes, but their clinics take insurance, and if you take insurance, from a financial standpoint, you cannot do that.”
