FamMedRocks Ep263 Preview


I'm happy to welcome Dr. Laura Knobel to be a guest on Family Medicine Rocks Episode 263 which will take place on Tuesday, June 12, 2012 at 6pm Eastern Time on the BlogTalkRadio network. Dr. Knobel is a Family Physician and member of the AAFP Board of Directors from Walpole, Mass.

Dr, Knobel and I will be discussing her recent essay on the AAFP Leader Voices blog: "The Joys - And Advantages Of Solo Practice" here's an excerpt from her essay:

One weekday afternoon when I was sitting on a bleacher watching my daughter play softball, another parent asked me why I wasn't at my office seeing patients. My answer? She's only going to grow up once. I attended every one of my daughter's high school softball games, but I also made plenty of time for my patients.

Many physicians struggle with work/life balance, so being your own boss has distinct advantages. I own my own small practice in suburban Boston, and love being a solo doc - again.

If you haven't already, invite you to check out previous interviews with Dr. Conrad Flick and Dr. Reid Blackwelder about their recent essays in the AAFP Leader Voices blog. I hope you can join us Live on Tuesday, June 12, 2012 at 6pm Eastern Time for Family Medicine Rocks Episode 263 with Dr. Laura Knobel.
