Cash pay physician update

In September, I highlighted a Colombian physician who immigrated to the United States to build a practice in a market he thought would be friendlier to an independent practitioner.  This physician brought his family to the United States to begin again.  It is a great American story because it epitomizes the hope and possibility of our great country as well as the determination of an optimistic immigrant.

I recently had the opportunity to have lunch with this physician and his lovely wife.  We had a delightful discussion about work, family and the pursuit of dreams.  I am very happy to say that his practice is meeting the financial and clinical objectives he and his wife set when they opened.  The community has been receptive to his services and word of mouth is spreading.   

Starting any business is a huge challenge.  Imagine moving to another country and starting your own business! Truly inspiring.  I am proud that my company has the opportunity to serve this medical entrepreneur with pharmaceuticals and medical supplies.   Though it is a small piece of the equation, we are happy to be a part of it.

I will continue to follow the progress of this clinic.
