After finishing residency, I moved to Puyallup WA to be back home near my family. I began working as an employed physician in a clinic run by the local community hospital (Good Samaritan Hospital). After 2 years I went out on my own in private practice and have been a solo family doc since. It was a scary move but it was one of the best things I've done.
I've been pretty successful at taking time off of work to spend time with my family and travel (approx 6-8 weeks a year)
Sad to say none other than surviving as a solo family doctor.
The road trips to Mexico and the Grand Canyon with my residency class.
Married (to Kim) and we have 3 children. We just finished adopting a 12 y/o boy from Ethiopia
