San Marcos Sheriff’s Station at 182 Santar Pl

We are looking forward to bringing together hundreds of physicians, distinguished guests and local, state, and national legislators for our first in–person Gala since 2019 to celebrate the installation of our incoming president and 152 years of healing at SDCMS’ Annual Rendezvous Gala on Friday, June 3rd, from 6:00 to 10:00 PM at The Abbey on Fifth.

You can find more information HERE. For those interested in sponsoring our Gala please contact me directly at Hegyi@SDCMS.org. We hope to see you there!

A reminder that San Diego County Medical Society (SDCMS) in partnership with The Doctors Company (TDC) invite you to attend an important and timely webinar entitled ‘Best Practice: Documenting Disruptive Patient Behavior’ to help address this issue.

Join us for this FREE event on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, 6 — 7:30 PM. We will discuss how medical record documentation should reflect the patient experience and behavior, and how to defend against health plan grievances or Medical Board complaints. In addition we will review how it serves to support dismissal of a patient when warranted.

All are welcome, both members and non–members alike. Attendees will also earn 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits upon conclusion of the program. Register HERE.

As always, let me know if you have any questions! Paul Hegyi, CEO
