Keynote Speaker

Most medical speakers are just that, professional speakers. They “consult” but have not gotten their hands dirty in years. They are boring, bought out by a third party or just plain lousy. Look around the web all you want for a truly experienced doctor to entertain and inspire your audience and you will find, well, almost no one. Dr. Douglas Farrago has been a practicing family doctor for 20 years. He was a prisoner of two different hospitals systems and hated almost every second of it. Now he is on is own doing Direct Primary Care and he has found the job of being a doctor again. He also has been blogging about the lost art of being a doctor for over a decade. You, too, can get that joy back. Dr. Farrago teaches you how.
