Why I joined:
To allow me to connect with my fellow physicians on a professional level. We are all busy in our own orbits as practicing physicians and we don’t have much time to associate with each other and share our common purpose. The Medical Society is unique in this respect providing an unbiased pro-physician association.
Why support MCMS?
I support MCMS to stay involved in local healthcare issues and remain aware of current changes that may affect my practice. I also hope my involvement may in some small way serve to help my fellow physicians. I have personally witnessed the outcome of MCMS committees effect change in regards to various insurance and hospital initiatives.
What do you think is the most valuable benefit or service offered by MCMS?
Many. The most valuable is difficult to say. Probably the way it provides a collective voice of my fellow physicians regarding the issues that are most important to us. The majority of these issues are local health care issues. Healthcare is local.
What has MCMS done for you?
It has allowed me to grow personally and professionally. Especially my involvement in a leadership position, which has provided me with a rich experience and balanced perspective of the forces influencing physicians in our community.
