Dr. Bartlett opened Columbus’ first direct primary care clinic, The Bartlett Medical Clinic & Wellness Center in 2016 after witnessing thousands of patients’ frustrating healthcare experiences both in cost and reasonable access. She saw this throughout her various roles in healthcare settings—as emergency room physician, healthcare system employed outpatient primary care physician, pre-admission screening physician, and finally as an urgent care physician at one of the busiest centers in Central Ohio. She wanted to help change both the access and cost issues for the uninsured, under-insured, and insured for primary care in Ohio’s capital, Columbus.
