I am a busy surgeon with a particular interest in personal finance and investing. My father, a retired financial advisor, taught me discipline and the power of dividends and compound interest. I do not feel it is necessary to employ expensive, self-motivated brokers or managers to invest one's money.

I am a 51 year-old Pennsylvania resident who took early retirement at the end of 1997; Initially due to a work related injury, but soon after made it permanent after discovering that my many years of diligently putting away every free dollar earned and through making good buy and hold purchases of high dividend / interest paying common stocks and fixed income securities, I was able to do so and live comfortably. However, in May of 2015, I got a bit bored with gardening and leaf raking (lol) and made the decision to get back into the "paycheck receiving" workplace.
I am a retiree who spends about 1-3 hours a day researching Equities. My retirement is solid enough that my trading account is mainly a hobby separate from my retirement. (I label myself more "Trader" than investor) I also spent a long career in Medicine, with experience running multi-million dollar revenue businesses, so know considerable about the medical field, it's needs and problems. Retired on investments (and Combat Disabilities)at age 46. More than 40 years of investing. I also did Medical Research, so researching is ingrained.
