After innovating a new kind of private practice, Jay Parkinson is set on making healthcare work the way most of us do — over the Internet.
Dr. Jay Parkinson, 36, gained notoriety in 2007 when he started his own practice in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, a neighborhood known for its influx of arty types and bars. Gawker quickly dubbed him the “Hipster Doctor.” He’s also appeared in the pages of Esquire, Newsweek, the Boston Globe and Fast Company.
His claim to fame? Bringing private practice into the Internet Age by talking to patients over email and IM and accepting payments via PayPal. Parkinson offered the slightly more anachronistic service of making house calls as well.
