Dr. Katibah

Welcome from Dr. Katibah

“For over 30 years, I have had the opportunity to do what I love: Being the family physician for patients of all ages while providing the special touch that demonstrates how much I truly care for them. One of my favorite expressions is -- ‘People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.’

After years of working in a healthcare system that rewards volume over value, I have embraced a healthcare model called Direct Primary Care that restores the patient-physician relationship. Since insurance companies and healthcare systems no longer dictate how many patients I must see, I now have time to listen to your concerns, provide medical care customized to your particular needs, and answer your questions, all in an unhurried manner. Direct Primary Care of the Carolinas opened in December 2013 committed to bringing this new model of medical care to the Charlotte region.”
