Preparing for Retirement...And Then What?
June 5, 2018 | 1:00 PM EDT
This presentation will cover professional and economic considerations leading up to retirement...that's the easy part. Most of Dr. Feinstein's talk will be about the more challenging issues such as loss of power and self esteem, re-evaluating relationships and how to continue to feel important. He will use some of his own experiences which are instructive and, he hopes, entertaining.
Samuel M. (Skip) Feinstein, D.O. was born and raised in Philadelphia and graduated from Temple University in 1963 with a degree in biology. After Temple University, Dr. Feinstein pursued his DO Degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM), grading in 1967.
Subsequent to PCOM, Dr. Feinstein completed his internship at Metropolitan Hospital in Philadelphia followed by four years of residency in surgery split between Osteopathic General Hospital in North Miami beach, Florida, (Now part of the Nova University system) and Cherry Hill Medical Center in New Jersey (Now part of the Kennedy/Jefferson complex.)
Skip maintained a private practice of general surgery first in Hollywood Florida from 1972-76 then Mesa/Phoenix Arizona from1976 to retirement in 2001. During that time be became a pioneer in the field of bariatric (weight reduction) surgery which he performed in addition to the full gamut of general surgery.
After retiring Dr. Feinstein served with four different international aid groups organizing and delivering surgical care in third world countries. For this he received the ACOS Humanitarian award in 2010. In addition, Skip has functioned as a semi-professional photographer and an independent publisher of fiction. Currently he is hard at work perfecting his double bass technique, active in several bands!
