Las Vegas, NV, April 01, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Robert O. Voy, noted sports & family medicine physician, author, and 2015 Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame inductee, has been named Chairman of the Board of Advisors for PersonalMD, Inc., the innovation leader in concierge medicine practice conversion.
An Army veteran and graduate of University of Oregon Health Sciences, Dr. Voy recently celebrated 50 years of practicing medicine. He served as Chief Medical Officer and Director of Sports Medicine & Science for the U.S. Olympic Committee from 1983 to 1989. Based on his experience, he published his book, Drugs, Sport and Politics, shedding light on the problems of the use of performance-enhancing drugs in sports. In 2015, he was inducted as a non-boxer participant to the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame.
“The nature of the healthcare industry has changed dramatically over the last 50 years,” says Voy. “While we’ve made amazing advances in medicine itself, the industry as a whole is still having fundamental challenges delivering the best medical care possible to patients, while supporting the physicians who provide that care. What PersonalMD is offering is the future of healthcare.”
“PersonalMD’s approach is consistent with my own practice approach in providing high accessibility, hands on examinations, continuity of care, and ample time for proactive care and patient education,” Voy continues. “And they’ve carried that forward by combining it with state-of-the-art technology in such areas as telemedicine, metabolic profiling, and practice management. It’s exciting to see as well as be able to counsel them with my experience and advice.”
“We’re thrilled to be working with Dr. Voy,” says Robert Seik, CEO of PersonalMD. “He immediately understood our vision for the healthcare industry, and his experience and standing in the medical community will be invaluable in realizing that vision.”
