I've been working long hours talking to the corporate lawyer, accountant, banker, advisors (both formal and informal) to branch out on my own.... Punger Family Medicine LLC.
Tonight I accidentally ran into the group of Independent Physicians Association. Like the door was waiting for me to walk in!
I came home and my husband asked, "Wouldn't it be nice to not have to worry about any of that administrative stuff and just sell the practice to HCA or Wellcare (or MM or Peds Assoc.. etc...)?"
It would NOT be nice. That's not who I want to be. I do not want to be told what I can and can not do.
I want to be the doctor who comes home to this (this was all yesterday) without restriction to practice what I believe:
"I love love LOVE our new pediatrician!!! She is an hour away, but Dr Punger is SOOOO worth the drive!!! We had an awesome visit with her this morning with well-visits for all 4 kids. Maggie has already gained 13 ounces! WOOO HOOOO!!!"
"Just picked up, "Permission to Mother" by Dr. Denise Punger at the library! I just read the first page....I still have forcep marks on my cheeks. Can't wait to read more!"
This is the doctor I want to be! Thank you for choosing my practice.
(It makes all the professional advisory meetings worth it!)
