Exceeding Expectations, One Patient at a Time
Zachary Tomlinson, DO graduated from Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine followed by residency in Osteopathic Family Medicine at St. Petersburg Gerenal Hospital. He is Board Certified Family Medicine and OMT. His work experience includes inpatient psychiatric hospitalist consultant in Pinellas County, hospitalist at New Smyrna Beach Hospital and Medical Director of Community/Transitional Care Clinic New Smyrna Beach. During his time working as a hospitalist and community clinic, Dr. Tomlinson saw how many patients suffered by lack of appropriate primary care follow up care. He has also experienced first-hand the increasing medical costs and decreased services provided by the current insurance driven model. While exploring alternatives to the current insurance fee-for-service model, he became aware of a membership model of healthcare called Direct Primary Care. This model nurtures the patient-physician relationship unlike fee-for-service which isolates patient-physician relationship.
Dr. Tomlinson strives to provide excellent quality patient care at an affordable price without insurance barriers to care.
