With the healthcare business being what it is today, it seems like all the health care providers are parts of big organizations and most of those organizations are headed up by men. So if there is a difference between men and women in the way patients are treated and care is dispensed, what does it mean if most of the direct providers are female and the head honchos are male?

Lots of questions, some answers.

Andrea Piatt, PhD., ABPP, is the principal and founder of Commonwealth Psychology Associates in Massachusetts. She is a board certified clinical neuropsychologist who specializes in assessment of adults with neurological injury or disease, medical conditions, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, and or emotional problems that impact academic or work life. And she is interested in helping women providers be owners and not just worker bees when it comes to helping patients.
