Dr. Luke Van Kirk was raised in St. Paul, MN, New Orleans, LA and Olathe, KS. He attended undergraduate school at Evangel University in Springfield, MO before attending Western University, College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific in Pomona, CA. He is board certified in family medicine. He only applied to osteopathic schools because he wanted to learn how to manipulate spine and body in order to help his patients as much as possible. That making family medicine the most obvious choice for him. He started his residency at Cox Family Medicine in July of 2012. Soon after he found out that his cousin had started a direct primary care practice (DPC) called Atlas MD (atlas.md) in Wichita, KS. This completely changed his focus in residency and made him realize he wanted to do nothing but DPC. He has been patient and has waited until now to start his DPC practice, Command Family Medicine, in Springfield, MO. He believes that it will change the world and (most importantly) the health of his patients. Dr. Van Kirk discloses that he has no relevant financial relationships with any organization producing, marketing, reselling or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients relative to the content of his presentation.
