Featured Physician Executive: David G. Preskill, MD
As both practitioner and entrepreneur, Dr. Preskill understands the challenges that the current environment presents to medical professionals as well as the tools and opportunities available for addressing them. Cognizant of the rapidly expanding body of medical research, and the time constraints of healthcare, Dr. Preskill envisioned ReachMD as a platform for helping busy practitioners keep pace with medical discoveries and dialogue without compromising on practice ideals or family demands. ReachMD is his second start-up venture. In 1999, he was the creative force and founder of Inner Vision Imaging, LLC, a medical device company that attempted to develop in-vivo imaging solutions to provide surgeons and pathologists cellular level detail of tissues and organs without the necessity to perform biopsies or organ removals. A board-certified OB/GYN, Dr. Preskill has been in private practice in the Chicago suburbs for 12 years. Dr. Preskill graduated from Northwestern Medical School and the University of Illinois-Urbana.
