To the Editor:
We need more articles like “Solo Practice: The Way of the Future.” I am planning to start a solo practice in Texas after I complete my residency this year. I have received very little encouragement from the faculty to do this and have heard many comments like, “That is very brave these days.” I had to go outside the program for advice on ways to start a solo practice. I now have help and am very excited about starting my practice. It is encouraging to hear family doctors in solo practice say how much they love it and that they would not change it. I hope many residents read this article and realize there is an alternative to joining a large group. You don’t have to be a fool to try solo practice.
