I was assigned to Naval Regional Medical Center in San Diego, CA. I served as a LT at the SEALTraining Center in Coronado, CA. Very Interesting. i was assigned to ARLEX in Washington, DC promoted to LCDR, at the clinic of the Commandant of the Marine Corps--Kelly. That covers 1980-1985. I then started my family practice in Douglassville, PA; close to my elderly parents. i became certified in family medicine and bariatric medicine.

Solo family medicine is difficult in today's medical system.
