We are truly blessed to live in a country that produces the best physicians possible and are sworn to adhere to the AMA Code of Ethics. However, that being said, like all professional occupations, we are plagued by a small percentage of persons who do not live up to the oath they swear by. Like I do with every aspect of my life, I trust but verify. What I have done for myself and for my clients, I run a complete and comprehensive punitive action profile on any new Doctor either I or my clients may wish to see for medical reasons. I maintain contacts with the NYS Department of Health, the American Medical Association and the NYS Civil/Criminal Court Systems so you can and will get the best information possible regarding your choice for a new Physician, Surgeon and/or Specialist. My health and well-being are very important to me, and I expect any Doctor I may choose to see to have the same interest in my health as I do. If you plan on changing Primary Care Physicians or have to see a Specialist/Surgeon, please give me a call first.
As a homeowner, I know the frustration when things break. I also know the joy of planning out new construction. Before I allow anyone in my home to fix the boiler, install new fixtures or even have a General Contractor come in to make improvements in my home, I check them out in the same meticulous detail as I would my physician. I check for past or pending lawsuits, insurance coverage, consumer complaints, and even criminal charges. Hindsight is always 20/20...foresight should be 20/20 too.
