Fast forward sixty years and I realize I'm practicing medicine kind of like my dad -- minus the index cards [for medical records].
I'm a solo-solo doc -- that's solo with no staff.
-- Pet Goats & Pap Smears: 101 Medical Adventures to Open Your Heart & Mind by Pamela Wible, MD. Dr. Wible is a primary care doctor in Eugene, Oregon with an appealing way of practicing medicine that she is trying to encourage other doctors to follow. Her new book "reveals the secrets to solving your waiting-room frustrations, slashing your medical bills, and securing first-rate health care now."
Dr. Wible is a champion of community healthcare, which she explains on her Ideal Medical Care website. You can learn more about her refreshing and sometimes funny approach to medicine on her personal blog, facebook, twitter, YouTube, and her Oregonian blog.
She also has essays in two award-winning anthologies: Goddess Shift: Women Leading for a Change, along with Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey, and Optimism: Cultivating the Magic Quality that Can Extend Your Lifespan, Boost Your Energy, and Make You Happy Now, along with Jimmy Carter and Steve Jobs.
