Dr. Eskew founded DPC Frontier in Feb 2015. He joined ProactiveMD in Feb 2016 and is the company's VP of Clinical Development and General Counsel.  He completed his family medicine residency at the Heart of Lancaster Regional Medical Center in Lititz, Pennsylvania in June 2015 and was honored with the American Osteopathic Foundation's Outstanding Resident of the Year Award in Family Medicine. He has been researching direct primary care (DPC) models for many years, including an intensive experience as a Visiting Scholar at the Robert Graham Center where his work was later published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine.

Some of his earlier research comparing West Virginia and Washington DPC laws was published in the West Virginia Medical Journal and he has pending publications with Journal of Legal Medicine and Family Practice Management.  Dr. Eskew has advised state and federal legislators about DPC legislation, and is the general counsel of the Direct Primary Care Coalition where he also serves as a member of the steering committee. 

He graduated from the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in 2012, the West Virginia University College of Law in 2008, the University of Kentucky Gatton MBA Program in 2006, and West Virginia Wesleyan College with accounting and chemistry majors in 2005. He has been a member of the Kentucky Bar since 2011, obtained a limited certificate to practice with the South Carolina Bar in 2016, and intends to use his diverse training to not only grow Proactive MD, but to support other DPC practices in the medical, legal, and policy arenas.
