Dr. Lickerman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lickerman "Founder and CEO of ImagineMD, Alex Lickerman, MD spent the first 20 years of his career as a leader at one of the top academic medical centers in the world, the University of Chicago, where he ran primary care for seven years and taught generations of today's leaders in medicine. There he enjoyed a reputation as "a doctor's doctor," caring for many physicians who are themselves today considered leaders in their fields. He is a master clinician, routinely diagnosing medical problems that leave other doctors puzzled. A nationally recognized speaker on the topic of resilience, his book, The Undefeated Mind: On the Science of Constructing an Indestructible Self, details evidence-based steps one can take to increase resilience and formed the basis of the landmark Resilience Project, which he began while at the University of Chicago and exported to ImagineMD as the Undefeated Minds program. Living by medicine's most famous aphorism, "The secret of the care of the patient lies in caring for the patient," he counts his tenacity in designing preventive care interventions, managing acute and chronic disease, and making the right diagnoses as his greatest strengths. Dr. Lickerman lives in Chicago with his wife and son. He counts exercising, reading, writing, and lively conversation among his favorite pastimes."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lickerman "I started ImagineMD, a direct primary care medical practice, to be able to take care of patients the way I always wanted: with the luxury of time to take complete and thorough histories, to think problems through rather than reflexively refer to specialists, and to actually read and research about problems I can't figure out immediately—in essence to provide my patients not just with a primary care doctor but with a personal health manager.

The difference between the customer service that ImagineMD can provide and the customer service that traditional fee-for-service primary care physicians can provide is like the difference between a dial-up modem and broadband. With a broadband connection, you don't just use the Internet faster. You use it differently."

Alex has my admiration, respect, and complete trust. Given my medical history, I could never have imagined making that statement.
