I worked 4 years in Whiteriver at the IHS hospital. I taught overseas in Karachi Pakistan as a Fulbright Scholar setting up a residency program in family medicine and emergency medicine at the Aga Khan University. I have since gone back to Pakistan and find both programs thriving. I then practiced a combination or family medicine/emergency medicine in Show Low Arizona. For a while I did high risk OB and did C-sections, but I found it hard to keep up with performing more than 30 deliveries a month while also practicing medicine. So, I then started doing ER medicine full time, and have now been doing ER medicine full time for over 10 years. I am the medical director of the ER at the hospital in Show Low.I am also on the State Trauma Advisory Board and have developed a system through which physicians can send their digital images to a web site that generates a passcode for the sending physician to use with HIPAA compliance. The system enables the physician to obtain a consult from any physicians at any hospital in the world, assuming that hospital has the EMDTransfer system that can download images to a PACS system. It has been a challenge but it has been exciting to see the system help save lives by getting neuro and trauma patients to surgery quicker, and also send more patients at home as a result of more timely and accurate interpretation of images.
My favorite recreational activity is cycling on my road bike.
One of my favorite memories was going to Rocky Point with our class"_ Wow has Rocky Point built up now
