Dr. Gregory Fryer, M.D.

Dr. Fryer had a dream of being a medical physician since 6th grade. He believes everyone is created for a purpose and have God-given dreams, and that they can better fulfill their purposes and live their dreams when they are healthy, feel good and have much energy. 

Dr. Fryer completed Family Medicine residency at Martin Army Community Hospital in Georgia after completing internship at Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii.  He was a staff Family Medicine physician for over 18 years before building his own practice.

Around 2015, his wife and co-worker, Erien Fryer, came across functional medicine. Together they did training in the Institute for Functional Medicine. They found the training invigorating and refreshing.

In order to determine the root causes of dysfunctions, Medical Direct Care started practicing functional medicine. As a result they integrate diet and efforts outside of the insurance industry.

This is now the bedrock of what Medical Direct Care practices today to take people from sick and hopeless to well and hopeful.

Anna Bushong

Nurse Practitioner

Anna Bushong DNP, APRN, FNP-C, CFNC has been a Registered Nurse for over 10 years, and completed her Doctorate of Nursing Practice and became a Nurse Practitioner in 2016. Since that time she has continued to study and learn how to best care for her clients.

A few years ago her 2nd child, then an infant, began having health issues and questions went unanswered. Doctors made recommendations but the root problem was not addressed. Frustrated, Anna took matters into her own hands, experimenting with diet changes and finally seeing results. This experience continued to snowball into a discovery of Functional Medicine, and from that point, she knew that she discovered her passion. She has completed the IFMCP course through the Institute for Functional Medicine as well as becoming a FxNA Certified Functional Nutrition Counselor through Functional Nutrition Alliance’s Full Body Systems course.

She enjoys spending her free time with her husband and three children, growing in their faith, hiking, and exploring new areas, as well as learning all she can about how Functional Medicine can help bring people to their optimal health.
