AREAS OF PROFESSIONAL INTEREST/EXPERTISE: Primary Care
Change in our profession is everywhere these days, and it is
rapid. Some is for the better, but much of it is stressful and
impacting our personal lives and our professional attitude. I have
been in Primary Care Practice for almost 30 years and have seen a
great deal of change. I started in a closed panel HMO (RIGHA) as a
salaried physician, and have ended up as a partner in a large
private practice (Coastal Medical). There have also been dramatic
changes in the academic world and in the hospitals. I see the ACP
as the voice of Internists, and if elected, would seek out our
members from all types of practice to get their input and represent
them. We need to preserve the values of our profession, ensure that
high quality patient care is paramount, and promote our specialty
to encourage more young physicians to choose Internal Medicine.
