What do you think about Telehealth?

Telehealth Has Changed the Practice of Medicine ...

With Covid, the rules and regulations associated with telehealth are changing rapidly. KCMS worked overtime to get doctors telehealth equipment at the beginning of Covid, and the need for telehealth continues to grow. 
We want to know more about telehealth, and how RETIRED AND PRACTICING doctors are engaging in practicing telehealth.
We'd like to hear your thoughts. Thank you!

Virtual HealthTech?

Would You Be Interested?

Previously, KCMS co-hosted a HealthTech Summit, and we had a great turnout. Doctors were really excited about the idea of having alternative ways to share their knowledge, make additional income, and several start-ups were created.
Obviously, we cannot offer another in-person summit this year, but wonder if there is an interest from doctors about a virtual conference to discuss possible collaborations?
There are three areas that we think might be of interest to doctors: 
  1. A HealthTech could provide an online platform where companies that are looking for physician advisors can 'advertise'  for what they are looking for,
  2. Start-ups that are looking for investments can 'pitch' doctors for possible investments,
  3. Doctors with a start-up idea can connect with entrepreneurs to advance their ideas.

            Health and Housing Policy

Recognizing the link between growing economic inequity and poor health outcomes, the Physicians for Social Responsibility's (PSR) Economic Inequity Health program advocates for policies that address racial and economic injustice across our state. One of PSR's major focus areas is the housing crisis given the significant impacts being unhoused has on health. PSR invites KCMS members to a free, virtual panel discussion on:

Health & Housing Policy

October 5th, 2021

5:30-7:00 pm. 

PSR has an amazing panel including:
  • An advocate with lived experience being unhoused, 
  • A physician who specializes in healthcare for the unhoused, and 
  • Washington state Rep. Nicole Macri (district 43), who is an outspoken champion for housing justice and has been a catalyst in getting affordable housing and anti-homelessness bills passed in the state legislature.
  • There will also, be time for a Q&A with our panelists.
More information will be coming with details as well as a registration link for the event.

Members on the Move



Erika Nealy, MD

Dr. Erika Nealy is originally from the greater Houston, Texas area. Dr. Nealy completed her undergraduate training at Harvard University. She came to Seattle in 2005 and attended medical school at the University of Washington, completed a transitional year internship at Virginia Mason, and then finished a radiology residency and a musculoskeletal imaging fellowship also at the UW.

Dr. Nealy joined TRA Medical Imaging after completing her fellowship because she said she enjoyed the group culture as well as the group size and emphasis on quality. At TRA, she is primarily based at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Enumclaw, WA where she serves as the medical director for diagnostic imaging.

“I love the small-town feel of Enumclaw and the friendly, high-quality imaging services we are able to provide at St. Elizabeth,” Dr. Nealy said.

Outside of work, Dr. Nealy lives in Maple Valley, WA, with her husband and their two daughters, ages 5 and 6 mos. When she’s off the clock, she enjoys pursuing her hobbies which include gardening, Peloton, and yoga.

Chuck Martin, MD

Dr. Chuck Martin is a Pacific Northwest native, but a bit more north than one might think. Born and raised in Kimberley, British Columbia, Dr. Martin grew up in a ski town in the Rockies before starting higher education at the University of British Columbia (UBC), in Vancouver.

After completing his undergraduate and medical school, Dr. Martin worked as an emergency and family physician in remote communities throughout British Columbia.
"While I loved the experience of practicing in the ER and clinics, it left me appreciating the expertise and guidance of radiologists and also cemented my goal of eventually practicing radiology," Dr. Martin said.

Dr. Martin returned to the UBC to complete residencies in diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine, later completing visiting fellowships at the University of Washington and University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Martin is a board-certified radiologist, with certifications from the American Board of Nuclear Medicine and the American Board of Radiology.

The best part of radiology for Dr. Martin is his ability to have a direct and meaningful impact on patient care as well as providing clinicians with information to treat their patients in the best manner possible. Dr. Martin joined TRA five years ago and works as the Medical Director of Radiology at St. Anne Medical Group.

"TRA is a wonderful organization that cares deeply about the patient population it serves," Dr. Martin said. " I feel humbled and privileged to work in such a high caliber and well-run organization."

When he's not working, Dr. Martin spends time with his husband Anthony and their two dogs, Rudy and Levi. The couple enjoys traveling, visiting family in Canada and New York, skiing, and scuba diving.


  • Dr. Elizabeth Poorman is moving to the Chicago area in September.
  • Dr. Brian Marcus has moved to Connecticut.
