COMMITTED TO PHYSICIAN AUTONOMY

Dr. Westby G. Fisher

PPA Board Member

Dr. Fisher is a Practicing Physicians of America Board Member and the Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology at a large health care system in the Chicago Metro area. He is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) in three specialties in medicine: Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Diseases, and Cardiac Electrophysiology. Because he is nearly 60 years of age, he has watched the ABIM’s Board certification process go from an entirely voluntary credential to one that is time-limited requiring recurrent payments to the ABIM throughout one’s lifetime.
