About Role

As a provider at Vera Whole Health, you are focused on building strong relationships with your patients to address their needs beyond their symptoms. You meet with 10 to 15 patients each day for 30 to 60 minute appointments, supported by an entire care team, including health coach, to deliver whole person care – care that’s often outsourced to specialists in today’s broken system. Committed to outcomes-based medicine and data-driven population health, you’re eager to live your passion to serve others and restore primary care to what it was always meant to be. 
“Having the support to really focus on preventive care is one of the main reasons I love working at Vera. We’re the first place people go when they need care, so we have an amazing opportunity to make a big impact on their health.” 
— Jackie Riddick, MD, Lead Physician, Vera Whole Health
