Learn about Dr. Flucke’s career lessons, connection to Philips as a KOL, and why providing patients with accessible care is incredibly important to him.

What you’ll learn:

  • Common challenges patients may encounter when seeking routine checkups or necessary treatments, stemming from cost, lack of insurance, office accessibility and accommodation.
