57 year old physician, who practices primary care internal medicine, the last 13 years as a solo practioner in a small community. During those last 13 years, I've come to release just how much I appreciate being able to do what I do. Although I am cutting back my hours, I hope to practice for another 20 years. Frankly, after putting three children through college, it may well take me those 20 years to rebuild my finances. Hopefully, my regular visits to this site will assist me in that endeavor. I am very new to making my own investment decisions, having opened my first trading account in January of 2009.
