P&L executives need to know that there are good places — and bad places — to find the specialist lawyer your company needs for an important task.
I recount the following with my wife’s permission:
An alert physician identified a problem with the way her body was regulating calcium.
Her internist described three options for the needed parathyroid surgery:
Two of the most prestigious medical centers in our hometown of Chicago — and Tampa General Hospital.
The two Chicago options reported that they performed between 10 and 20 of these surgeries each month.
Tampa General Hospital: 180 per month (later we received reports of a higher number).
Two months later we flew to Tampa.
Results were perfect.
That’s the upbeat part of the story.
