Bryan Smith, M.D.

Todd Coulter, M.D.
Two AAPS members were featured in a story on “CBS Evening News with Dan Rather” that aired on Nov. 22, 2002. Watch these inspiring accounts of how doctors are getting back to taking care of patients – and how patients can take back control of their medical care from insurance company and government bureaucrats!

N. Bryan Smith’s practice, “Doctor at Your Door” and Todd Coulter’s walk-in cash clinic will be featured in this story. Both doctors were featured speakers at AAPS meetings this year.

Drs. Smith and Coulter are doing what most doctors would like to do – eliminating third party meddling and bureaucratic nonsense from their practices and getting back to taking care of patients!

Dr. Coulter’s practice in Ocean Springs, MS is of particular note as a working retort to critics who say we need government to bring medical care to low income patients. He’s bringing excellent care to low-income patients that allows them to retain control over their own medical care – without a dime of government payment!

Through the efforts of AAPS, the Lexington Herald wrote about the subject and helped spark the attention of CBS. We’re always looking for more stories about doctors and patients on the frontlines, so don’t hesitate to let us know how you’re fighting the system for future stories.
