Philip Hellman, MD

Family Medicine

Welcome everyone! I want to thank you for your interest in Paradox Health and tell you a bit about myself.

If you want to know what brought me into medicine, it was the combination of my anatomy class and a trip to the Peruvian Amazon in high school. I had no family in medicine, but for me, the path to becoming a physician made the most sense. I went on to Grand Valley State for my bachelor’s and then followed with the MSU College of Human Medicine to attain my MD. I did my residency in Greeley, Colorado at North Colorado Family Medicine. My training there was excellent and is owed in large part to an exceptional group of mentors and faculty on staff there.

My wife and I relocated to Silverton, Oregon for my first job out of residency in the Summer of 2016. And although we cherished our time there, we made the tough decision a year later to move back to our family in Michigan where we felt we were being called. That year and a half of work in the health care industrial complex opened my eyes even further to the deficiencies of modern health care. Its clunky, bloated, and mis-incentivized structure was not something that excited me. I always felt terrible when a patient would get a large medical bill despite paying large insurance premiums or was told the most effective therapy for their malady was not an option.

In March of 2018, I decided to form Paradox Health and start taking part in the DPC model of health care. It is something I thought about since my first year of medical school, and ultimately what I had always wanted to do. It just took the right prodding, and the right people to tell me I wasn’t crazy.

I currently reside in Rochester with my wife Chelsea and our four children: Merritt, Luella, Hattie, and Hannon.

Lyndsi Davenport, DO

Internal Medicine

Hi everyone! I’m Dr. Lyndsi Davenport. I am an internal medicine physician, and I am thrilled to be joining Dr. Hellman at Paradox Health.

I attended college at Michigan State University where I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in physiology. From there I studied at MSU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine and graduated in 2013. I did my internal medicine residency at Ascension Genesys Hospital in Grand Blanc, Michigan. After my residency, I joined the faculty at Ascension Genesys and have been teaching internal medicine residents since; completing a fellowship in academic medicine in October 2021.

Throughout my time as faculty in the residency clinics, I faced many challenges and roadblocks to providing patients with the top-notch care they deserved. Caring for patients in an underserved area will open your eyes to the many shortcomings of traditional medicine quickly. While I continue to have a passion for academic medicine and teaching; I knew there had to be a better way to practice medicine. I began researching direct primary care and immediately knew this was the path I wanted to pursue. Being a part of Paradox Health means practicing medicine the way it was intended; with the focus on the patient and preventing disease.

Outside of medicine, I am a former bodybuilding competitor and still exercise daily. I love all things MSU and you can find me at Spartan Stadium on Saturdays in the fall. I have an unhealthy obsession with bamboo baby clothes and matching my children. My husband Warren and I live in Rochester Hills with our son Emory, daughter Eleanor and our fur baby Dude.
