Why Physicians Should Practice Medicine in Connecticut


Internist Douglas A. Gerard discusses why practicing in Connecticut makes for a happy physician despite high taxes and other challenges.

Connecticut is home to three medical schools, a varied, seasonal climate, and both thriving urban cities and quieter rural towns.

For internal medicine physician Douglas A. Gerard, who runs a solo medical practice and calls New Hartford home, the quality of life is hard to beat.

"It’s a beautiful state, it’s got great scenery," Gerard told Physicians Practice. "You can pick from an inner city type practice with a higher pace, or pick a rural area like where I am..."

However, Gerard said it’s important to acknowledge that "Connecticut has a lot of bad aspects to it," namely high income taxes, property taxes, and gasoline taxes that make it a difficult state for physicians to settle.

In this podcast Gerard tells PhysiciansPractice what he likes - and what he doesn’t like - about practicing medicine in Connecticut.
