Dr. Patel praised the NCMS for successfully addressing medical liability reform during the 2011 legislative session. “As a member of the NCMS Legislative Cabinet, I witnessed the wonderful work the cabinet and our lobbyists, who are second to none, have performed,” he said.
In listing TIPS’ accomplishments thus far, Dr. Patel noted that two members had graduated from the NCMS Leadership College: Pankaj Gupta, MD, Cary; and Vipul Shah, MD, Burlington.
