Get to Know Us

Your Health, Hassle Free.

Ok, this is a lot of words. Stay with us and you won’t be disappointed.

In the traditional, insurance-based primary care clinic, doctors are financially incentivized to keep you sick and have you physically in their office as much as possible. Seriously. Not even kidding. How is this ok? It’s the reason visits are mere minutes long while the doctor stares at the computer, not you. It’s not their fault, the system mandates it. That same healthcare system is pleading for a new, efficient way to keep patients happy and healthy.

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is the answer. A monthly membership fee covers all primary care services such as preventative care, acute and chronic issues, minor procedures, casting, osteopathic manipulation, etc. Bloodwork, medications, and imaging are literally a fraction of the cost (up to 95% less expensive). The convenience and savings are astonishing for individuals, families, and small businesses alike. Run the numbers, they never lie.

At Strive Direct Health, healthcare is affordable and accessible to everyone. We work obsessively to be the change we want to see in “The System” and are proud to be the only clinic in the area specifically designed with one sole purpose in mind: your health. Exactly the way it should be, right?

So, what is Direct Primary Care? Check out the pictures and video below, it explains DPC quite nicely. Dr. Brown and Dr. Schuster’s skillsets are uniquely positioned to cover your primary care, urgent care, and other medical needs whether that is virtually or in person. We make ourselves available for our patients when and where they need. It’s primary care the way it was meant to be - focused on you.

Hi there! I was born and raised in Littleton, Colorado. I lived for the mountains and grew up skiing, hiking, and soaking up the high-altitude sun!

I went to the Colorado School of Mines for my undergrad and received my degree in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering. It was here that I met my wonderful husband, a fellow Colorado native, avid outdoorsman, and proud Mines engineer.

I loved engineering, but my passion has always been medicine, and I knew I wanted to head to medical school next!

So, I then went on to the University of Colorado School of Medicine. On my second day of medical school, I knew I was meant to be a family physician. I fell in love with the idea of practicing medicine for everyone; old, young, pregnant, seriously ill, completely well, and everyone in-between! I am so proud to be able to grow my passion for preventative care, full scope family medicine, and patient centered care.

Outside of medicine I love spending time outside, mogul skiing, backpacking, practicing yoga, and cooking.

Hello! The first two questions I am always asked are “how tall are you” and “did you play basketball”. Well, I am 6’7” and yes, I played basketball in college. Now that is out of the way, on to the good stuff!

As Erie residents for the past few years, my wife Dani and I (+3 kids) have felt the heart and soul this growing town has and want to be part of it personally and professionally for decades to come.

While attending medical school in Phoenix, I knew right away I wanted to care for everyone of all ages, or “womb to tomb and everything in between” as some say. As a family doc, I also work in rural emergency rooms and various hospitals in the area to keep the skills sharp. I have a passion for using lifestyle and food as medicine, and you will probably get tired of hearing me say “life is motion and motion is medicine”. After school, the mountains called us back and we couldn’t say no to living in Erie.

On a side note, I am an avid road cyclist, basketball dunker, and anything-in-the-mountains enthusiast. Although, I have been compared to a baby giraffe by other people watching me ski. Let’s just say it’s a work in progress.

Hi! I was born in San José CA but say I’m from Salt Lake City as I lived there most of my life. When Brad and I moved to Phoenix for medical school, we knew we needed mountains back in our life when he finished. Long story short, we’ve been Erie residents for a few years and hope to be for many, many more to come.

My educational background is in accounting and project management (basically a perfect fit for what Brad needs!). We often say that he is the dreamer and I lay out the list of what needs to get done to make that dream a reality. That is pretty much how Strive came to be. My background seems to come in handy with 3 young kids at home as well.

Otherwise, I grew up on the ski slopes and am also an avid road cyclist. I live for any type of trail run and can’t wait until our kids to join in all of these activities. Colorado is the best place for all of it!
