Your Kind of Healthcare

Our providers are focused on practical, functional healthcare using alternative treatments at an affordable rate. We empower our patients to find what works for them while providing evidence-based guidance and recommendation all along the way.

A Letter From Our Founder

I'm Tim Pickett, founder of KindlyMD. Throughout my career, I've worked in emergency medicine, trauma, and gastrointestinal surgery. There, I saw firsthand the toll that overprescribed prescription medications take on a patients life, let alone the lives of their loved ones. Something had to change; The healthcare industry had to change.

In 2020, I started seeing and educating Med Card patients with the sole intention to provide honest, evidence-based, and practical information about plant-based medicine to the people of Utah. Along my journey to spread the good word, I’ve spent time producing educational content, and presenting in universities, medical board discussions, and continuing education programs.

It was clear to me that this lifesaving alternative treatment needed to be a part of the larger healthcare conversation in our country. Enter: KindlyMD. By empowering patients to take control of their own health through open communication about their treatment with their care team, we’ve found that nearly 88% of KindlyMD patients use less prescriptions, illicit drugs, or alcohol. Our patients also report feeling better in their day to day lives. We just can't ignore results like that!

KindlyMD is more than a clinic. It's a movement of patients, advocates, and providers taking back control of healthcare and is truly the first of its kind. We are developing the largest network of medical providers dedicated to helping people reduce harsh, addictive prescription medications. We believe a treatment plan should be a collaborative conversation between provider and patient and are creating a new kind of healthcare: one that’s built with YOU in mind, not the pharmaceutical companies.

KindlyMD is your kind of healthcare.

Kindly,

Tim Pickett, MPAS-C

The Gate Control Theory of Pain: What It Is and Why It Matters

Medical science knows a lot about pain. But truth be told, there is a lot more we don't know. We do not know why people perceive pain differently, for example. No doubt we have some educated guesses. But we can't offer a concrete explanation. One possible explanation is known as the Gate Control Theory of Pain (GCTP).

6 Tips for Taking Control of Your Own Healthcare Journey

We do things a little bit differently at KindlyMD. For instance, we consider healthcare a journey rather than a service or business. We also believe patients should be able to take complete control of their respective journeys, should they decide to do so. Ultimately, each patient must decide how to utilize healthcare services, advice, treatments, etc.

The Med Card Is an Alternative...To What?

Here at KindlyMD, we often say the Utah Med Card is an alternative to other types of treatments. We might recommend the card and its associated plant-based medicines to people suffering from chronic pain, PTSD, cancer, and other qualifying conditions. As an alternative, the Medical Card gives patients access to treatments they could otherwise not take advantage of.
