MD2 (pronounced "MD Squared") practices a form of primary healthcare that is sometimes referred to as “concierge medicine.” Founded in 1996 in Seattle by Dr. Howard Maron, former Seattle SuperSonics physician, and Dr. Scott Hall, MD2 provides individual medical care that includes allowing patients immediate access to their personal physician as much as possible,[1] at a greatly increased cost.[2]

While many medical practitioners see upwards of three to four thousand patients per year, physicians with MD2 care for 50 families. The ten offices across the country offer a private entrance, no waiting room, and two experienced physicians.

The business began after Dr. Maron, who was then with the Seattle SuperSonics, contemplated selling access to personal physicians to persons who were not star athletes.

A privately owned business, MD2 has offices in Seattle, Bellevue, Portland, San Francisco, Beverly Hills, Menlo Park, Dallas, Chicago, New York, and Boston, with plans to expand to other major cities.[3]
