What members are saying about the FMA
"I wanted to join an organization that was well respected, professional and served as a representative advocate for its members. I found that in the FMA. As health care is perennially one of the most critical issues facing our state and the nation, we need an organization with stature and poise, one that has been immensely successful in helping doctors practice medicine. That is the essence of the FMA." — Joshua D. Lenchus, D.O.
"They're always on the front lines fighting for us. I know that there's somebody out there who's looking out for our best interests." — Christie Alexander, M.D.
"The FMA's successes have made Florida a better place to practice medicine and have translated to thousands of dollars in savings/earnings for each of Florida's physicians. The FMA's strength in numbers also allows it to advocate effectively for our vulnerable Medicare and Medicaid patients. I feel great satisfaction knowing I make a difference for my profession and my patients through my FMA membership." — Jose D. Jimenez, M.D.
"Young physicians need to join together within groups such as the FMA to make sure our voice is heard and that someone is speaking up for the physician-patient relationship." — Christopher Burton, M.D.
"The Florida Medical Association works hard to improve Florida's medical environment on behalf of young physicians, who are the future of medicine. The FMA's legislative victories will allow my generation of doctors to practice in a more medicine-friendly environment for many years to come." — Carrie Morris, M.D.
"As an active member of multiple medical associations, I can tell you with certainty that the FMA is one of the most organized and politically active in the nation. If you want to make a difference in your professional and your patient community, being a physician is not enough. You must get engaged and go down the road of health care policy with the FMA as your vehicle. Join the FMA. Your profession's future depends on it." — Ajoy Kumar, M.D.
