Madeline A. Danny, DO, began her two-year term as president of the Montgomery County Medical Society during the organization’s annual meeting on June 12, 2012 at the Blue Bell Country Club.
Dr. Danny, a board certified internal medicine physician, will lead the 165-year-old organization that has a history of helping physicians adapt to the changing health care environment. She is the first osteopathic physician to be inaugurated. As the national debate continues about how to make health care more efficient and cost effective, Dr. Danny said it is important that physicians take a lead role in shaping modern health care delivery.
“We are currently taking action under the advisement of the state medical society to address the urgency of the situation in the best interest of our patients,” Dr. Danny said. “The physician is the ultimate voice and patient advocate. It is important for Montgomery County residents to know that there is a real wealth of medical resources in our community.”
Dr. Danny has treated patients with diverse backgrounds and ages, ranging from 18 to 105 years old. She hopes to address access to patient care issues in a county that has changed dramatically over the past few decades.
