Introduction

My name is Dr. John Gong. I am currently the owner of thriving internal medicine/hospitalist practice in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago; my experience includes 10 years of teaching in academic medicine and for the past 14 years, I have been a full-time hospitalist. 4 years ago, one of my physician clients whom I served as a hospitalist approached me about purchasing his practice as he had become physically incapacitated. I successfully resuscitated the practice and it is now one of the fastest growing private practices in the area with a niche of serving highly complex patients with multiple medical problems. I have also served as medical director for 3 skilled nursing facilities as well as for an active hospice service. I also have expertise as a medical director for utilization review and care coordination for a prestigious healthcare system. I have successfully launched hospitalist programs for 2 different hospitals but the one thing I am most proud of is my record of accomplishment in teaching. As an internist, I won the Gold Apple Teaching Award for MacNeal Family Practice Residency 6 times. My success as a physician has in large part been attributable to my teaching skills. In patient care, I apply a Socratic style to educate my patients about their health care. For the past few years I’ve delved into working as an expert witness. I strive to be forthright and articulate. I think you’ll find my ability to explain complex medical issues succinctly to be very compelling for depositions and potential jurors.
