Love Being a Doctor Again

Between Obamacare, MACRA, and diminishing revenue, many physicians are

feeling disillusioned and buried in stress. But there’s still one thing that matters

enough to put up with all of it — your patients! Learning to connect with your

patients on a deep level not only will help rekindle your passion for medicine and lead

to greater work satisfaction, but also help reduce your practice’s risk by lessoning the

chance of a complaint to the Texas Medical Board.

Tuesday, February 7: Bexar County Medical Society

6-8:30 pm • 4334 N Loop 1604 W, Suite 200.

Register today: • (877) 880-1335
