Some people collect stamps. Others may collect salt-and-pepper shakers or even polka records. And then there are those who collect old pagers.
“My wife has a box full of old pagers and iPhones that she has collected over the years,” said Dr. Peter Earl, an OB/GYN hospitalist at Memorial Regional Medical Center and at St. Francis Medical Center, in Mechanicsville and Midlothian, VA, respectively. “When I retire, there’s going to be a bonfire.”
Dr. Earl is happy to leave those annoying devices behind as he enjoys life now as an Ob Hospitalist Group physician.
“I like the time off very much. And I like the providers I work with,” he said. “They treat us well, as colleagues. I very much like that. Even in a ‘demanding’ month, I might work 10 days instead of seven. But that’s still only 10 days of work out of the month! It’s something I wish I had done quite a few years before I did it.”
