The Entrepreneurial MD Podcast

Jul 16, 2007

Calling herself a "Private Medical Care Advisor", Dr. Delia Chiaramonte is finally reveling in the clinical practice of her dreams.

As a family physician who worked in faculty group and solo settings, Delia would probably still be limping along, suffering from a vague sense of disappointment and disillusionment with clinical practice, were it not for two events that affected her life personally.

Health problems affecting both her daughter and her best friend almost simultaneously forced her to acknowledge that navigating the health care system, even as a health professional, was a big challenge. She realized just how arduous the process was for the average person to be able to arrive at a sound medical decision or treatment plan. 

The idea of patient care advocacy was hatched!

Working in partnership with a like-minded colleague, Delia opened Insight Medical Consultants almost a year ago, and has been steadily growing her business.

Listen to this week's episode of The Entrepreneurial MD Podcast and discover how this articulate, compassionate physician has been able to leverage her medical knowledge and her negative experiences within the healthcare system to find deep satisfaction in her work. And provide a much-needed and highly-valued service to boot!
