About Small Door:

We’re also working with the founders of One Medical Group and CityMD along with people like Temple Grandin to build and grow this project.  We opened our first practice in late 2019 in the West Village, are opening our 2nd location this month in the Upper East Side and are planning 2 additional locations in NY this year alone and 10 more next year across several cities. 

Our company mission:
