Dr. Anand Mehta is a dedicated board certified family physician who has focused on patient care and improving the patient experience throughout his medical career. 

He was born and raised in Buffalo, NY where he attended SUNY Buffalo. He later graduated Medical School from Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, India. 

His residency was completed at Hunterdon Medical Center in Flemington, NJ, where he continued to work for the hospital system there for 4 years. 

After the move to GA, Dr. Mehta worked as a solo family physician for WellStar Health System for five years in Roswell, GA, where he later established himself as the medical director for Primary care for the local hospital. 

He then took a position as the first medical director in the nation for Walmart Health during the summer of 2019. He helped grow the pilot location into a successful model that promoted the growth of future Walmart centers in GA and beyond. 

However he left this position to pursue healthcare that meant more of a difference in patient lives, then his personal wallet.

He is a better physician and person since starting Stand Up family Medicine, in October of 2020. 

In today’s episode, Dr. Mehta shares how he has literally “stood up” to the many challenges he’s faced in his journey to opening his own DPC, Stand Up Family Medicine. After ten years of working for different practices and climbing the corporate ranks, it was reflecting on his life and what he had become that made him choose a better way of life.

By Maryal Concepcion, MD

A Sacramento native, Dr. Maryal Concepcion is a Filipinx creator and connector. She attended the University of California at Davis where she graduated in 2005 with a double major in Anthropology (BS) and Evolution & Ecology (BA). She had an unforgettable time as a California transplant when she got her MD at Creighton University in Omaha, NE. It was there she discovered hayrack rides, found her Husband, Dr. Jeremiah Fillo, and discovered her love of rural family medicine. Her residency training was in the unopposed family medicine program at Doctors Medical Center, Modesto, a training extension through the UC Davis Medical School. During her time in training, she returned to rural Superior Nebraska to complete proficiency training in performing colonoscopies as part of her rural family medicine concentration. After residency, she moved to Arnold, CA where she worked under the fee for service model with her Husband doing full-scope care for over five years. Though grateful for her experience in this role, she was driven to seek a better way of life and a desire to practice insurance-free medicine and that was when she discovered DPC. She is the founder and host of the podcast My DPC Story, a weekly podcast that educates and inspires by featuring DPC and direct care physicians. Find it at mydpcstory.com and on all major podcasting platforms. Most recently, she became the CEO and wearer-of-all-the-other-hats at Big Trees MD, the first Direct Primary Care in Arnold, a rural town of 4,000 in the Stanislaus National Forest located in Northern California. Her clinic was created as a telemedicine and home visit model without a brick and mortar space. But, the title she is most proud of is being a Mama to Asher & Nolan, her two ridiculously awesome and cuddly boys!
