Matthew Roman, MD
Businessman, physician, healthcare innovator, and patient advocate and liaison.I became a hospitalist to understand healthcare infrastructure by interacting with inpatient and outpatient physicians, managers, HMOs, nursing facilities, social workers, case managers, and those in pharmaceuticals; while treating a spectrum of illness from hospice and intensive care to family practice and telemedicine consultations. The objective was understanding the complexities of healthcare industries to improve public health and quality of life using sound industry practices that exemplify growth from corporate social responsibility. Firmly grounded in science-based medicine, the transitioning from clinical practitioner to patient advocate and corporate manager was laid out by becoming a medical marijuana specialist and consultant for patients, physicians, industry executives, and state administrators alike. Currently President of Nature's Way Medicine, a primary care physicians practice that integrates family medicine with medical marijuana for those in need of last-line resorts for qualified illnesses proven to benefit. We achieve the proof of concept and set the gold standard for doctors to follow. Through a network of courageous individuals and organizations, the movement is gaining strength and the time has come to bring relief to our sick loved-ones on America's East Coast. Join me.
