The blogosphere has taken note that Amazon has hired a geriatrician. ChenMed's take on this is that Amazon may see the value in targeting an older chronically ill demographic as its place to make a disruptive entry into health care. I'm still stunned Amazon was able to find a geriatrician to hire. After all, in some markets, a credentialed geriatrician is paid less than an ordinary primary care provider. Yes, advanced training as a geriatrician can be an income reducer for someone interested in primary care.
