Bruce D. Armon, a Partner and Chair of the Regulatory, Privacy, and Healthcare Contracting Practice Group in the Philadelphia office, was quoted extensively in this article published in the AMNews, an American Medical Association newsletter, about how to handle when a physician leaves a group and whether that doctor's patients can follow to the new practice.
