President’s Message

by David E. Bobman, MD

President of the Chester County Medical Society

We asked. You answered. We heard you!

As I previously mentioned, we polled our members to see what they were looking for in the Chester County Medical Society. Several issues came up. First, political advocacy was a common concern. While there are many physician practice issues which need to be addressed on a political level, the most pressing issue revolves around the reversal of a decision 2 decades ago to limit medical liability to the venue in which the alleged malpractice occurred. (Please see my separate article in this issue addressing this matter.) Spearheaded by physician leadership of Paoli Hospital, along with members of the Chester County Medical Society Board, a working group has been established to attempt to tackle this rather difficult and complex issue. Look for more to come in subsequent publications of our newsletter.

Secondly, though the number of private physician practices has dwindled, they now, more than ever, need assistance with the many issues which arise during the running of their practice. To this end, we are in the process of putting together a list of businesses and services which have been recommended by our members. Our hope is to negotiate preferred pricing for our members as well. This is still a work in progress.

Lastly, many people felt there has been a loss of interaction between physicians as many have become isolated in their offices or are otherwise too busy to interact with their colleagues. We are in the process of arranging several fun social functions- ones that may include not only physicians, but also their spouses and children. Our first event is to take place August 23, and will be held at Top Golf in King of Prussia (food included). This should be fun for golfers and non-golfers alike. We hope to see many of you there!
