He sees patients in a faculty practice primary care clinic at Beth Israel Deaconess, he is a well-known (and excellent) speaker, and he consults. A few of the innovative companies he is involved with are Seniorlink, Kinergy Health, and Conversa Health, all which are aimed at enhancing patients experience with health care.
