A Heartfelt Thank You

As I write this brief article, Thanksgiving is just a few days away and the chaos of the holidays is right around the corner. This time of year always gives rise to reflection about the past year and I ask your indulgence to take off my attorney hat for a moment and diverge from offering words of legal insight in this article and instead offer words of thanks.

I have the privilege in my professional life to represent an array of individuals who have dedicated their careers to health care. This has allowed me the opportunity to observe the amazing commitment and devotion of these wonderful people to the patients that they care for.

In this era of ever-changing legal regulations, reduced reimbursements and a seemly never-ending array of new challenges to the practice of medicine, the physicians and other healthcare providers I encounter in both my professional and personal life continue to provide the best patient care possible. At the same time the medical profession often seems to bear the brunt of any frustration with healthcare harbored by the public or governmental entities. While these challenges appear daunting, I am increasingly amazed by the tenacity and passion of my health care clients to their chosen profession and the patients they serve.

As we come to the close of a year in which family and friends, myself included, have experienced the highs and ultimate lows that can be experienced in arena of healthcare, I would like to offer a heartfelt thank you for all that you do and continue to do, day in and day out, for your patients; the care you provide is appreciated far more than you may know.

I wish you all a very happy holiday season.
