Why I joined IPN
Dr. Colan originally joined IPN in order to participate in a high-quality, affordable medical care system in Southeast Wisconsin to and to build his referral practice in general pediatric neurology. Membership in IPN provides Dr. Colan with better opportunities for networking and working with other physicians in the region.
In this climate of a rapidly evolving medical environment, Dr. Colan notes that IPN provides an essential stabilizing factor through its timely and accurate information, educational resources, guidance, and support. In such a climate, independent physicians may face isolation and confusion, and IPN helps navigate through these changes to maintain affordable, high-quality care as part of the overall picture in order to serve a broad range of patients and their families. In short, every independent physician can benefit from involvement with IPN.
Dr. Colan’s continued membership is due in part to IPN’s strong, stable leadership and business prowess that has prospered in the ever-changing medical climate many independent physicians find unfavorable. With its creative, hard-working leaders and highly-involved, intelligent members, IPN offers independent physicians the best opportunities for growth, security, relevance, and long-term success while maintaining their autonomy.
