That first night of call is forever engraved in my memory. I was little more than a month out from graduation and running a code on telemetry. I really had no business running that code, but if I didn’t, then who would? [Read more…]

That was the day that I walked across the stage, turned my tassel, and graduated from medical school. My diploma said “Doctor of Medicine” and I had earned the right to put M.D. after my name.

I’ve met so many wonderful doctors across the country and it has been my distinct pleasure to do these events and provide valuable information and access to this asset class. [Read more…]
