Synopsis

First, Dr. Brown shares how he grew up in a family pharmacy business, which influenced his choice to join private practice out of residency. Dr. Brown discusses some of the challenges of being in private practice, including the impact from COVID, decreased reimbursements from insurance providers, and staffing challenges, which he calls the “commoditization” of healthcare.

Next, Dr. Brown discusses challenges in recruiting ENTs to rural areas out of residency, as many are looking for jobs in urban settings. He also notes the need for more general otolaryngologists among fellowship-trained subspecialists in ENT.

Finally, Dr. Agan and Dr. Brown delve into the importance of advocacy and its role in bringing attention to health-related issues and making an impact in patient’s lives. Dr. Brown discusses the reason why he created OASIS; he wanted to increase representation of otolaryngologists and fill the need for a strong, unified voice to their interests. Their conversation ends on the potential consequences if a significant portion of otolaryngologists remain unrepresented.
