Blalock, Walters is pleased to announce that Robert Stroud, has had an article published by the American Academy of Private Physicians (AAPP).

AAPP is a non-profit organization founded in 2003 for the purpose of supporting and fueling the growth of medical practices that provide “concierge” and other forms of personalized, value-based medical care.

The article, titled Health Care Reform Legislation Impacts Concierge Medical Practice Models discusses how “the sweeping health care reform legislation enacted on March 23, 2010, known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (the “PPACA”), as amended on March 30, 2010 by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, has significant implications for ‘concierge’ or ‘boutique’ medical practice business models.” “On behalf of our concierge physician clients, Blalock Walters is developing tailored solutions to the issues discussed in this article, based on such factors as the number of physicians, patient population and current business model,” said Stroud.

Mr. Stroud received his Juris Doctor from Stetson University College of Law, cum laude, where he also received a Certificate of Concentration in Health Law. He received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Finance and Economics from the University of Florida. Mr. Stroud has experience as counsel for both single-specialty and multi-specialty physician practices, billing companies, and ancillary health care providers, including Independent Diagnostic Testing Facilities and ambulatory surgical centers.

According to Jonathan Fleece, Blalock Walters’ health care practice group chair, “Robert adds tremendous value to the firm’s health care practice group, as he has developed very focused health law models in the concierge medicine market. His knowledge in this area will certainly help clients navigate the changes coming to health care. In addition to dedicating his practice to the representation of health care providers and facilities, Mr. Stroud also counsels clients on other business, employment, merger and acquisition, wealth preservation and real estate matters.

Mr. Stroud is a member of the Florida Bar (member of Health Law Section), American Health Lawyers Association, the Manatee County Bar Association, and the Sarasota County Bar Association. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the Manatee Education Foundation and Lighthouse of Manasota, and is a graduate of Leadership Manatee.
