BHCS said, “Professor of Radiology at Tufts University Medical School and Executive Vice Chair of the Department of Radiology at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center, Dr. Wald will speak on the pressing need for doctors and patients to resist public agencies and “experts” seeking to insert themselves into the doctor-patient relationship. He will further challenge physicians to feel comfortable ordering imaging studies, if in their professional opinion, their patients will directly benefit.

Founder and Executive Chairman for Bermuda HealthCare Services Dr. Ewart Brown commented, “This topic is timely as in many ways, the doctor-patient relationship is constantly evolving.

“As doctors, the care and treatment of our patients is our top priority and we should be concerned at any changes that can interfere with, delay or even stop treatment that in our professional opinion is necessary. I want to encourage my colleagues to preserve the relationship between doctor and patient and to resist efforts to alter that relationship to the detriment of our patients,”

Renowned as a captivating and dynamic speaker, Dr. Wald Dr. Wald specializes in body and cardiac imaging with a particular focus on advanced image post-processing. As Executive Vice Chair of the Department of Radiology at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center, he oversees 38 staff, 20 residents and 300 employees performing approximately 360,000 exams per year at three sites.

Dr. Wald remarked, “I love my every day work because it allows me to bring the many groundbreaking advantages of modern imaging to the care of our patients. This ranges from guiding referring doctors and patients about best choices for which imaging should be done, to interpreting all available clinical, lab and imaging information of patients: either I can reassure them that disease is not present or when unfortunately it is, help direct care and hopefully cure in the best possible way.”
