Discovering the Cause and Cure for

America’s Health Care System Crisis.

A physician’s memoir.

By Roger H. Strube, MD

With Foreword by Wesley Wallace, MD


Dr. Wesley Wallace



I met Dr. Wesley Wallace when Kathy and I moved to Punta Gorda Isles after living aboard our cruising catamaran for several years. Wes is a retired orthopedic surgeon and past staff model HMO medical director. He also sailed a multihull so we had interests in common. When I decided to write Creative Design for Health Care Reform, I recruited Wes as both an editor and contributor. He helped keep me on track as the manuscript was being written and contributed the Foreword presented below. His biography may be viewed below the Foreword to the book.

Dr. Wallace maintains a Blog on healthcare issues. His writings may be reviewed at the following blogspot:
