Larry Good, MD, FACG, founder, CEO Good Pharmaceutical Development, CEO, Compassionate Care Center of New York: In thirty eight years of gastroenterology practice, I have had many memorable moments. Completing my first procedures as a GI fellow, having my first paper published and opening my first office stand out as particularly memorable.
Probably though, the launch of my Concierge Practice several years ago where several hundred of my patients attended an informational meeting and demonstrated an amazing level of support, affection, devotion and appreciation was the crowning and most memorable moment of my career.
