Dr. Mark Holcomb
A little about me
My biggest dream as a kid in Iowa was always to be a doctor and take care of patients. After 40 years of living that dream I still love what I do and still want to do it better. This new practice gives me that opportunity. I get to do something simple and smart in Direct Patient Care. Healthcare simplified for my patients. I care for of a limited number of great patients. This gives the patient plenty of time to talk and ask questions. We can really get to know each other. I want my patients to feel like family.
The University of Iowa accepted me for medical school. I came to Kansas City to train with one of the great mentors in my life in the Emergency Medicine at Truman. My first two partners and I practiced together for 30 years. I now practice emergency medicine with my daughter and teach residents, medical students, and paramedics. My interests have been wide. Flight medicine, hyperbarics and wound care, EMS, and a MBA. I love new technology and new ways of doing medicine better. Direct Patient Care is a new way of doing medicine better.
