Feedback from MPPG members affirms that our mission of saving physicians money is critical to their ability to practice in today’s financial climate. It is MPPG’s continuing goal to increase physician profits and reduce stress – we believe that doctors work hard enough. Dr. Greenberg currently oversees the day-to-day operations of MPPG in addition to practicing medicine full-time.
