I’ve worked as an Emergency Medicine Physician for over a decade now. Most of that time, I’ve also been investing in real estate. Real estate has been good to me and I’ve been asked to share my story with the Physician Nexus community.
RESIDENTIAL REAL ESTATE

Your success in Medicine is dominated by connectivity- the flexibility and bilateral interaction with people you can reach and who can reach you. That in turn means the number, speed and intensity with which you can communicate. That is power. This is where your use of LinkedIn as a means of connecting is critical.
Some examples of connectivity are simple and obvious. For example your current patients who need to reach you for services- and in turn you reach to introduce a new service.…

If you’re a recent medical school graduate, in residency or early in your practice, likely you’re active on Facebook planning your social life and staying in touch with family and friends. Perhaps you’re a bit more business focused and enjoy the parlay on Twitter or text message frequently. But how many clinicians bother with LinkedIn? Isn’t it just a giant job board for non-medical people?
On the contrary- it is THE doorway into professional interactions and expansion…Continue

According to CMP® program Founder Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA CMP®, and Editor Gregory J. Kelley of Physician’s MONEY DIGEST [March 31st 2005], a 47 year old-doctor with $184,000 annual income would need about $5.5 million dollars for retirement at age 65.

I came across a case of PLE 2 years ago when I was in Taiping - a case of a young lady with neuropsychiatric symptoms which remained diagnostically challenging - until we found out that she had ovarian teratoma - which was so small that not even clinically palpable.
"..While PLE has shown preponderance for females in their 60s and…Continue
