Every physician's journey begins somewhere.  This book will show how physicians of the millennium will be better and stronger than many of our predecessors.


"Every physician's journey begins somewhere. For some individuals, it is continuing a legacy. Other physicians have inspiration from doctors they came into contact with while going through a medical illness. There are still others that found a love of science, realizing their talent in learning and practicing medicine. Some individuals go into medicine to make a lot of money. As great philosophers have said through the ages, "with great power comes great responsibility." Doctors may have preconceived notions of how the public views them. The public expectation of physicians is that doctors will make huge amounts of money. There are some doctors that feel the public should put physicians on a pedestal. Finally, doctors always want to be respected irrespective of their competency. The public and the media see physicians as powerful, all knowing, and wealthy. The reality of the life of an attending physician is vastly different than public perception. 

    With that said, Dr. Brodkin will predicts successful physicians will: become patient advocates •  be masters in family and staff communication •  become leadership by example •  be proficiency in coding and billing •  be gentle guides for end of life issues • be servants of the community
