Julia E.Gabis, Esquire - A thank you to the PHP
For more than twenty-five years, I have had the privilege of representing physicians, dentists and other health professionals. One of the most challenging and rewarding aspects of my practice has been the representation of health professionals who have or may have a physical or mental impairment. For my clients who have connected with the Physicians’ Health Programs for help, the PHP has been a reliable, constant, compassionate and knowledgeable resource at every step in the process – helping to obtain an evaluation; supporting and monitoring recovery; and advocating for the retention or reinstatement of professional licenses.
Many things have changed in twenty-five years - the faces at the PHP, the laws and regulations governing professional practice; and certainly the nature of the practice of medicine and dentistry. The stresses inherent in the practice of medicine and dentistry have always been considerable – never more than today. Through it all, the PHP has been there. The PHP has saved lives and has helped many health professionals achieve a stable recovery and continue working. For that, I express my gratitude and look forward to working together in the years to come for the benefit of health professionals in Pennsylvania.
