For This Doctor, Business As Usual Is Over

Dr. Rob Lamberts cares for a living. Make no mistake, he's a bona-fide primary care physician, but his out-of-the-box health care practice is turning heads because he really does care about his patients.

He thrives off the joy of connecting with and helping them.

That's a refreshingly rebellious attitude for a doctor to have these days given the accelerated pace of the current health care model - and it's not the only way his practice stands out as an anomaly.

Lamberts, also known as Dr. Rob, wants to keep people away from health care. "As strange as that may sound," he says, "the goal of most people is to spend less time dealing with their health, not more," and he's looking for ways to do that.

He's not a fan of unnecessary tests, of patients being put on medications that don't help, or of going to the ER when people don't need to. Lamberts speaks openly about the fact that he'll use whatever means he can ó texting, phone, or house calls ó "to keep people as people, not as health care consumers."

May God bless you for your deep respect for human life. What a joy to read about your practice and how "human" you have made it. I'm sorry I live so far away. I would want you to be my Doctor, too.

Beautiful. Imagine if the medical world was filled with people like him! His patients are very lucky, which I'm sure they know.

This is what doctors are supposed to be like.

there are lots of Dr. Lamberts types out there who don't get these stories about them, but maybe seeing this will lead to more coming out of the shadows......

I believe you are right about that Dave..There are some great Doctor's out there..I am fortunate enough to have one..Though he is affiliated with an office/hospital..he is as good as one could have in that situation..

And yes..perhaps more doctors seeing this article would/could be more inspired to get back to where they should be..
