I don't like the insides of boxes. I am always trying to think my way out of them. After 18 years as a primary care physician in our glorious system, I left. In February 2013 I opened a new practice, Dr. Rob Lamberts, LLC, one in which I no longer slaved away for insurance companies or governement bureaucracies. I have a new employer: my patients.
My move has gotten lots of attention, as I am also a medical blogger, detailing my adventures before an interested audience. Why the attention? I doubt it's my good looks. I think it's because my practice model actually makes sense, focusing on health over sickness, people over payers. I am now convinced that this revival of old-fashioned medicine could be the very thing that saves American healthcare.
My blog, Musings of a Distractible Mind has been a diversion for both me and my readers (as twisted as that seems). I started writing in 2006, writing some about medicine, some about personal opinions and thoughts, and a healthy dose of humor. Mysteriously, llamas have become a big part of my writing. I still don't know how that happened. Still, these quadropeds have become a large part of my online persona, culminating in my authoring another website, Llamaricks, a blend of poetry (loosely interpreted), humor (even looser), and some actual intellectual thought (loosest of all).
