Risheet Patel, MD enjoys treating patients, including children down to the age of three, and building long-term relationships in the process. He has a passion for innovation in healthcare delivery through the use of technology. Using data, he believes he is able to enrich and inform the care experience.
At the end of my medical residency, I was at a crossroads. Do I go into a specialty or practice primary care? I eventually realized I needed to address my medical career with a generalized approach. I wanted to understand the many aspects of adult medical care and its multiple treatment options. I jumped in with a group medical practice that allowed me to practice medicine without financial or business concerns.
As an accomplished teaching physician, I will educate you as you will educate me; it is a two-way street. Nothing sugar-coated and nothing held back. You will know what I know and what my opinion means. In the end, you are the ultimate decision maker.
Ashlie Olp, MD practices in Carmel, IN, where she treats children and adults of all ages. She believes that the best care is delivered when physician and patient work together as a team, with the patient in the driver’s seat, so that they not only receive answers to questions or get an accurate diagnosis, but also so that they live healthier, happier lives.

Traditional medicine teaches doctors to alleviate symptoms, even if the underlying process that caused the symptoms goes unchecked or gets made worse.
The problem is that underlying process almost always causes something else to go wrong, eventually. Holistic or alternative medicine teaches doctors to treat disease using only products and ideas that aren’t patentable (owned by one person or corporation); But nature didn’t provide a way to solve some of those underlying processes, and some patented products are useful until or if the patient can’t be cured.

Functional medicine teaches doctors to find the biochemical difference between you when you’re healthy and you when you’re sick, and then use all tools available to return you to your healthy state. In Functional Medicine, cure is the goal, not disease maintenance. I’ll provide whatever depth of care you want, but I want to offer that Functional depth of care.
Dr. Forkin joined Dr. Robert Habig in 1989 after she was discovered by his wife while working at Witham Hospital Emergency Room in Lebanon, Indiana. Dr. Forkin was a “stand-out” demonstrating her medical skills, excellent judgment and meticulous attention to detail. Well-known to families throughout Central Indiana, Dr. Forkin enjoys caring for multi-generational families.
Dr. Mary Pat Forkin always wanted to become a family doctor—and worked diligently to make that happen. She was the Chief Resident in Family Practice at St. John’s Mercy in St. Louis. She married Dr. Robert Arthur in 1983, and together, they tell stories about caring for the sick and acutely ill.
Dr. Habig served as Medical Director and Director of Inpatient Services programs for American Health Network where she was instrumental in program development.

Dr. Habig feels that her vast experience in the art, science, and business of medicine has made her a much better outpatient doctor. She can now prevent crisis intervention (hospitalization and emergency care) by recognizing symptoms and instituting treatment before a crisis.
Dr. Robert Habig was born and raised in Indianapolis where he graduated from North Central High School as the salutatorian. One of eight children, Dr. Bob learned early in life what family and sharing was all about. He is an avid private pilot and a Senior FAA Medical Examiner.

Dr. Bob always wanted to be a family doctor and achieved that goal after graduating from the University of Notre Dame, the Indiana School of Medicine and Methodist Hospital Family Medicine program.

Dr. Richard Schuster is board certified in family medicine as well as neuromusculoskeletal medicine, a specialty in osteopathic medicine for those with expertise in musculoskeletal problems and related neurological issues. While he may work on your body’s outer layers during OMT, he is always analyzing how it impacts the internal nervous system and other parts of the body you may not even realize play a role in your medical problem. Dr. Schuster is veteran of the United States Navy.
Board Certified in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine
Board Certified in Family Medicine
Osteopathic medicine is based on the principle that all systems in the body are interrelated and dysfunction in one part is likely to affect the rest. Just because you suffer from headaches, it doesn’t mean your brain is the culprit. If we address the root cause of the health problem and work to regain balance among the systems, the body will inherently heal itself from injury or illness.
Dr. Cynthia Villacis has been a board certified family physician for 15 years. She found it hard to provide timely, personalized medical care in a traditional office setting. When she learned about direct primary care she knew I had to take the leap open my own practice. Dr. Villacis is fluent in Spanish.
You can see Dr. Villacis for sick visits, physicals or get care for chronic problems like diabetes, hypertension or depression. She loves having the time to talk with my patients to better sort through their needs. We will work to find a solution instead of adding another pill, ordering a test, or placing a referral to a specialist. As an independent practice, she works with you for your care. Dr. Villacis looks forward to meeting you and working with you towards your health goals.
“I’m healthy, young and rarely get sick, so seeing a doctor regularly hasn’t been a priority for years. Following the birth of our first child, my wife and I decided it was time to get back into the habit. Looking around, I found WPP – veteran doctors in the community with a new kind of practice where services and prices were completely transparent for customers. As a business owner myself, I appreciated knowing exactly what I would get and what I would pay, instead of playing a guessing game with insurance coverage. When I called the practice, I was surprised they could schedule a prompt appointment for me, instead of waiting months to get in. On the day of my scheduled visit, my appointment was on time, the service was quick and efficient and I left the office extremely happy with both prices and the overall experience.”
“I’m healthy and typically see the doctor just once every year, so the new WPP program seemed like overkill – but I gave it a shot. The day of my appointment I was called in promptly at my scheduled time, and Dr. Habig spent an entire hour and a half with me, uninterrupted. My comprehensive physical far surpassed the usual yearly visit, giving Dr. Habig plenty of time to offer detailed explanations of my health and wellness. For example, he explained how it was critical that I address a recurring vitamin deficiency. In past years, I’d brushed aside this advice, because there was no time for an in-depth discussion since it was already time to move along to the next patient. Finally understanding its importance, I stopped by the pharmacy on my way home. After the visit, my insurance carrier walked me through submission of the statement WPP handed me, and I was ultimately reimbursed for an out-of-network office visit, which covered a large portion of the cost.”
“I am young and did not have insurance coverage. Finding a direct primary care doctor that was available to answer my questions via text was so amazing. I was able to be seen within the first few days of becoming a member and she took the time to get to know me and my history. My doctor isn’t rushed and has the time to ask me questions to get an understanding of how past issues have been resolved or how their affecting me now.”
