Dr. Regan is a board certified Family Medicine physician with 20 years of experience caring for patients throughout the lifespan. She graduated from Brown University’s Family medicine residency program in 2000 where she was the chief resident. She spent the first 5 years in private practice in Narragansett, RI and the next 15 years in private practice in Middletown, RI. She is an adjunct professor at Warren Alpert’s Brown University Medical school and has cherished teaching Brown Medical Students for 15 years. Currently she is teaching a group of first year medical students the art of interviewing and physical exam.
After 20 years of working in the fee for service model of primary care, she increasingly experienced less and less quality time with her patients. She believes that thorough and proper diagnosis requires time, trust and active listening, all of which were being eroded by shorter visits, longer wait times, surprise bills and less access to her when her patients needed her most. The DPC model will now allow her and her patients to spend more quality time together at each visit, to provide transparent billing without any surprises, to respect patients time with on time visits as well as to provide care to her patients when they need her. The DPC model will also allow Dr. Regan to personally coordinate care with specialists and allied health professionals which will be a true team approach to foster better health. Her schedule will be flexible and accommodating for her patients which will reduce or eliminate the need for urgent or emergency room care. She believes access to your own physician when a health issue arises is not only good medicine but optimal medicine. She knows relationship and connection matter when making an accurate diagnosis and creating an individualized treatment plan.
Dr. Regan has been a resident of Jamestown for 23 years and enjoys paddle boarding, cooking, reading, boating and tennis as well as spending time skiing and snowshoeing with her husband, Dan, and their three teenage sons, Aidan, Ben and Christian.
Dr. Regan believes that relationship is the cornerstone of exceptional primary care and a relationship can only be fostered with time, mutual respect and listening. She is excited to share her new practice model with her patients and practice the art and science of medicine the way it use to be with her PATIENT’s needs at the center not the insurance companies.
