When it comes to your health, one of the best things you can do is build an ongoing relationship with a primary care doctor who empowers you to make informed decisions.
Virtual primary care is a convenient way to build this relationship via phone or video. Patients love that they can save time and money while taking control of their health. Doctors love virtual primary care, too, because it allows them to see their patients more often and when care is most needed.
Let's get to know one of our doctors. Aaron Sartin, MD, is a First Stop Health Virtual Primary Care doctor who focuses on empowering his patients towards wellness. Read on to learn about Dr. Sartin and his approach to virtual care.
