Welcome to the podcast, Dr. Faucette

Thank you. I'm excited to be here.

I wanted to start with the fact that as was mentioned in your bio pre DPC, you were in a very different, place in life professionally. So could you please give the audience a little bit of a flavor as to what your life was like in fee for service and pre



So I grew up on the central California coast. I you know, grew up in San Lupo. I did my medical school training in the San Francisco bay area. Then I went to New York city where I trained in urban um, underserved family medicine and completing my training. I stayed in the city for about a year. I was working in academic uh,

medicine, supervising residents.

I also did a lot of integrative medicine and osteopathic manipulation, which we'll probably talk about a little bit later, too. And then due to some family health issues, essentially, I moved back to the same area and my father who's really well connected in the community, told me that in Santa Maria really close by, you know, 30 minutes away was a new residency pro program in family medicine.
