Dr. JOSH UMBEHR
Born and raised in Alma, Kansas, Dr. Josh Umbehr majored in human nutritional sciences with a minor in biology, and completed extensive research on the effects of vitamin A on lung cancer. He graduated from The University of Kansas School of Medicine and completed his Family Medicine residency at Wesley Medical Center. After completing his training to become a Board Certified Family Physician, he opened Atlas MD. His cash-only clinic embodies his ideal medical practice, one where he shrugs off the burdens and restrictions of government and insurance regulation daily. That way he can focus solely on his patients.
Dr. DOUG NUNAMAKER
The son of a hospital administrator, Dr. Doug Nunamaker attended Pittsburg State University where he graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in biology with minors in chemistry and physics. He then graduated from KU Med and completed residency in Wichita, KS at Wesley Family Medicine. Afterwards, he joined Mid-Kansas Inpatient Physicians as a hospitalist before teaming up with Dr. Josh at Atlas MD. He had realized, quickly, that the long arm of insurance was a looming problem over contemporary medicine. However, upon meeting Dr. Josh Umbehr, he was able to cut ties with insurance companies and provide the medical care he’d dreamed of as a youth.
Dr. MICHAEL PALOMINO
A Kansan through and through, Dr. Michael Palomino graduated summa cum laude from Wichita State University with a degree in chemical science. He earned his doctorate in 2007 from University of Kansas School of Medicine. Like Drs. Doug and Josh, Dr. Michael completed residency at Wesley Medical Center. Seeking long-lasting relationships with his patients, he began practicing family medicine at a clinic affiliated with his residency program. But after frustrating experiences with insurance companies – including frequent denials of recommended medications and treatment plans — Dr. Michael sought a new way to connect with his patients. And, as Atlas MD’s third physician, he’s found the opportunity.
Dr. Jared Johnson
Dr. Jared graduated Oklahoma Christian University summa cum laude in 2003 as a university fellow with majors in biology and vocational ministry. He received his medical degree from the University of Oklahoma, then returned to Wichita to complete his family medicine training at Wesley Medical Center. Dr. Jared is board certified in family medicine and a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, the Kansas Academy of Family Physicians, and the Medical Society of Sedgwick County. After five years in a large multi-specialty group practice, he became frustrated with the status quo. He chose direct care to do what he went to school for: to truly be there for his patients. At Atlas MD, he feels he can invest time in pure patient-physician relationships, without any third party interference.
Dr. Shawn Wadsworth
Dr. Shawn attended Avila University in Kansas City on a baseball scholarship. He also graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Chemistry and a minor in Mathematics. He then graduated from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. After residency he became Board Certified in Family Medicine through the American Board of Family Medicine and by the American Osteopathic Academy of Family Physicians. Dr. Shawn believes in spending time with each patient and being available on a daily basis allows for the development of that patient-physician relationship. He is thrilled to be a part of the Atlas family and providing affordable, personalized family care in Wichita.
Kirk specializes in transitioning existing medical practices to Direct Care. In essence, he’ll make converting to DPC a downhill slide instead of an uphill battle. After graduating from K-State and earning a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from the Department of Hospitality Management and Dietetics, he moved to Kansas City for the country club industry.
