Dr. Brendan Henderson established Modern Internal Medicine as a Direct Primary Care clinic with additional unique features to serve Frederick and the surrounding areas. He completed his Internal Medicine Residency at Yale and earned board certification in 2009.
While he excels at managing chronic medical conditions, he also specializes in creating personalized wellness plans for weight loss, nutrition, and physical/athletic performance so as to prevent them. Through his methods, he has helped many individuals achieve remission of various conditions such as diabetes and hypertension eliminating the need for expensive medications and ensuring better future health.
Through the Direct Primary Care Model and by limiting significantly the number of patients we see we can provide a level of personalized care that is not possible in the traditional healthcare models. This allows us to offer same or next day appointments, little to no waiting room time, and extended conversational visits. You now have a doctor who takes the time to listen and approaches medical conditions in a holistic manner addressing the underlying causes and relying on traditional medications only as a last resort.
How does Modern Internal Medicine distinguish itself from other traditional clinics?
