Care in the right hands

Adam Courchaine
Adam Courchaine PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT AND PRESIDENT

Adam is a highly educated healthcare professional who graduated from UMASS Amherst with honors in Exercise Science in 1995. He started his career as an Exercise Physiologist and later worked as a Pulmonary Technologist at Boston Children's Hospital. Adam continued his education at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS), where he graduated Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS) in 2006. In 2022, he earned a Doctorate of Medical Sciences (DMS) at Lincoln Memorial University.

Throughout his career, Adam has worked in various areas of healthcare, including Internal Medicine/Primary Care, Pediatrics, Geriatrics, and Urgent Care. He also joined the Army National Guard in 2012 as a PA, now serving as an Aeromedical PA with an Aviation Battalion. Adam was deployed to the Middle East in 2017 and Kosovo in 2020.

Adam has witnessed the healthcare system in the U.S. becoming increasingly inefficient and less patient-centered over the past 30 years. In response, he founded NuMed Direct Primary Care in 2018, a healthcare model that focuses on health and wellness rather than sickness. This approach has been very successful, but Adam wanted to expand his impact and help people regardless of location. This led to the creation of his Mastery Program, which emphasizes lifestyle medicine, ancestral living, and optimal health and wellness.

In his free time, Adam enjoys outdoor activities with his family and their three dogs, including hiking, functional exercise programs, and rucking.

Adam and Dara are not only extremely knowledgeable about all things medical-related, but they genuinely care about you as well! They take the time to get to know their patients and focus on the root cause of the problem instead of just covering up symptoms with medications. 100% recommend this practice!!
