Honorees shared what advice they would offer to new physicians:
"Do the best you can for your patients, and love what you do."
"You will get out of your medical career exactly how much you are willing to put into it."
"Set your career goals first, then look for the best practice opportunity to achieve those goals; don’t do it the other way around."
"Accept that you do not know everything, keep an open mind, evaluate new ideas."
"When you treat a patient, you are also treating their loved ones."
"Choose a specialty for which you have passion."
"One of my biggest regrets is not keeping in touch with my peers as a younger physician. Stay connected. The Academy and other medical societies are the places that really help you do this."
Congratulations to our local physicians celebrating their 50th year. We thank you for your service to the community!
