Original Air date March 5th 2012: My Mobile Medicine was started in 2008 by Jody Hoppis, a Nurse Practitioner who wanted to bring a more personal, adaptable form of Family Practice Medicine to patients in Whatcom County, WA. With everything she needs in a simple bike trailer, Jody has been caring for her patients over the past 2 years, bringing them quality care and medical treatment that comes from an experienced professional. Because of her unique method of care, she is able to spend 45 to 60 minutes with each patient, much more than the average 10 to 20 given in a clinic setting.
