I again had the wonderful opportunity to speak to the residents at Sterling Village of Boynton Beach last night. Last year I lectured on the topic “The Doctor & Patient Relationship”, this year I decided to talk about a topic near & dear to me which was Hypertension. After losing my father to complications from long standing hypertension its a disease that I'm very aggressive with in trying to obtain control for my patients. As an Internist, chronic disease management is almost second nature so I pride myself in being to start giving these talks in the local community. The residents at Sterling Village were wonderful and they always make it easy for me as a still novice guest lecturer. I look forward to speaking with them for years to come.
