Dr. Garrick Baskerville

Dr. Garrick Baskerville is a board-certified Family Medicine physician and the Founder of METSI Care. He received a B.S. degree in Biology from the Pennsylvania State University. He then received his medical degree from the Pennsylvania State Hershey College of Medicine and completed his residency at Christiana Care Health System in Wilmington, DE. He has practiced in Primary Care, Urgent Care, Sports Medicine, and Occupational Health (Worker’s Compensation) for almost 15 years now.

Dr. Garrick is passionate about providing HIGH QUALITY care that addresses all aspects of what makes us human beings, including MIND, BODY, and SPIRIT. He believes that care should be AFFORDABLE for EVERYONE and that QUALITY CARE takes time. That said, he believes a patient should have time to address their issues and not feel rushed during a visit. At METSI Care, the visits are 30 - 60 minutes if needed. When he practiced in traditional, insurance, based models of care, he was scolded by administrators when he wanted to spend more than 15 minutes with his patients. That didn't sit right with Dr. Garrick and he told himself back in 2012 that he would eventually start his own practice where he could provide the care he believes in which EVERYONE should have ACCESS. With that, he founded METSI CARE<
