Experience does make a difference. Mine includes duties as a military pediatrician, work in a medical school environment, and the past twelve years at Group Health, where we constantly strive to provide medical care of high quality. My first Army assignment was Seoul, Korea, and I returned home with a beautiful lady who is still at my side. When not on the job, my favorite place to be is playing with my four grandsons (yes, zero granddaughters). Mountain trails that lead to mountain streams are a favorite place to be. Ocean and mountains close make Seattle a great place to live for all of us.
