About Us

Welcome from Dr. Sheppard,
D.O. — Founder of the Free Market Physician Clinics

Thank you for considering the Free Market Physician Clinic for your health care! In 2014 I opened the Free Market Physician clinic in Neosho with three goals.

First, I wanted to restore the physician/patient relationship. I wanted to be a doctor that my patients could talk to and actually be accessible to my patients.

Second, I wanted to restore customer service to medical care.

Thank you for considering the Free Market Physician Clinic for your health care! In 2014 I opened the Free Market Physician clinic in Neosho with three goals.

First, I wanted to restore the physician/patient relationship. I wanted to be a doctor that my patients could talk to and actually be accessible to my patients.

Second, I wanted to restore customer service to medical care.

Third, I wanted to restore sane pricing and transparent pricing to medical services.

So, I opened an insurance-free membership clinic. My patients pay a monthly fee that covers all of their visits, including guaranteed same-day visits, and access to their physician 24/7 by phone, text, and email. Our labs and medications are provided at cost.

This approach has been a success. We now have a growing staff with offices in Neosho and Joplin and new patients joining us daily. Most importantly, we have been able to break out of the insurance model and provide health care the right way- working directly for our patients.

If you are tired of status-quo health care and would like to try a more personal approach to your medical care, visit us at a Free Market Physician Clinic, where we are doing our best to restore simplicity and freedom to health care.
