Why Do
We Exist

Doctors don’t
have time

The University of Chicago estimates that primary care doctors would need more than 24 hours each day just to meet the national recommended care standard.

No one sees the
whole picture

Doctors, specialists, and even new wearable devices don’t look at the health of the body and mind comprehensively.

Tests are narrow
and limited

Physicals are only once a year, and typically ignore dozens of markers that influence health and happiness.
