Uniting Physicians
and Patients

Through a grass roots effort, we advocate for physician-owned healthcare centers to ensure the integrity of the healthcare industry. We are uniting with physicians and healthcare facilities in order to protect the viability of the free market healthcare industry against, what many feel, are unethical actions taken by the insurance companies.

Our Mission and Goal

The Mission of PCCTX is to proactively advocate, educate and lobby for patients’ concerns over their healthcare choices and access of physician owned healthcare facilities and defend the free market healthcare system. Our goal is to identify, implement or change existing legislation to promote the integrity of the healthcare industry, individual physicians and patients.
