If you’re turning through the pages of Central Florida Doctor, and you’re thinking that some things look a little different, then you’re right! We’ve made some changes to the design that I think you’ll like. We’ve also added some new content to match the new presentation. Why, you ask? Our answer is pretty simple: the ever-changing field of medicine deserves a publication that evolves right along with it.
Winston Churchill said it best: “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” At Central Florida Doctor, we are constantly finding new ways to revolutionize and advance the publication. So let me give you the tour:
- On page 14, the In My Opinion feature brings you three different perspectives on the same question. Three local doctors share their unique views on one relevant topic, which allows you a diverse viewpoint on the subject.
- On page 16, we’ve punched-up the content and quality of the community calendar. Whether you’re looking for a community event, supporting a local fundraiser, or would like to refer a patient to a support group, this print and online calendar has everything you need.
- On page 18, the new “On the Pulse” article will keep you informed of all the happenings in your local medical community. Stay informed of new physicians in the area, new procedures, major changes to hospital or clinic policies, and more.
- On page 28, we’ve given one of our hallmark stories a new look. The Medical Memoirs article has always been a favorite, so it’s the same great story-telling of a physician, but with a rejuvenated presentation. The outstanding portrait of Dr. Glen Barden (both on the cover and on page 28), were taken by the highly-acclaimed photographer, Rick Pezzimenti. Pezzimenti has been in business for more than 20 years, and operates locally out of downtown Winter Haven.
As the editor of Central Florida Doctor, I would be amiss if I didn’t solicit your feedback. While we constantly strive for perfection, we realize that there is always room for improvement. I encourage you to write or email me with your thoughts, suggestions, compliments, and yes— even your constructive criticism. Our commitment has been— and always will be— to continuously improve on the publication and make it an outstanding representation of our professional medical community.
