The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is leading a revolution in medicine—putting a new focus on health and compassion. The Physicians Committee combines the clout and expertise of more than 12,000 physicians with the dedicated actions of more than 175,000 members across the United States and around the world.

Our efforts are dramatically changing the way doctors treat chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and cancer. By putting prevention over pills, doctors are empowering their patients to take control of their own health.

Through initiatives such as our annual International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine, Continuing Medical Education in nutrition, and Nutrition Guide for Clinicians resource, we are actively engaging with physicians and medical students to provide a better understanding and application of nutrition in medicine.

And we are also building a new way of viewing research. Since 1985, the Physicians Committee has been working tirelessly for alternatives to the use of animals in medical education and research and advocating for more effective scientific methods.

Our staff of physicians, dietitians, and scientists is working with policymakers, industry, the medical community, the media, and the public to create a better future for people and animals. Learn more at www.pcrm.org.

















Atlantic Health Partners



DC Hospital Association









Many brokers claim to be “medical experts,” but in reality, they only dabble in the healthcare market. At Gittleson Zuppas Medical Realty, our business focuses primarily on representing physicians: from identifying needs and analyzing alternatives, to negotiating terms and finalizing lease documents.

Our firm was established in 1990 upon the discovery that the medical real estate market was being ignored by most traditional brokerage firms. The lease expense is one of the largest overhead costs of a practice, and the ability to minimize that cost and maximize the efficiency of the space is critical. Our firm has flourished by recognizing the special needs physicians have as they relate to office space, but the most important part of the job is intuitive and personal. Gaining confidence and respect from our clients remains the heart of our mission.

We bring medical and real estate together.

   Remaining independent is more difficult now than ever before. MedChi, the Maryland State Medical Society, created MedChi Network Services (MNS) to confront this challenge. MNS offers management services to improve practice revenue. The goal is to give physicians and their staff the tools they need to run a successful business, without the additional costs experienced by large groups and health systems.

  We offer a full suite of practice services, including: revenue cycle management/billing; EHR selection, implementation, and optimization; marketing; compliance support; full-service practice management; and general consulting. We believe practices thrive when physicians are given clear and actionable data about their business and their patients.

   MNS is Maryland’s largest state-designated Management Services Organization and a sub-recipient of the federal Regional Extension Center grant. We provide highly flexible and functional approaches to optimize the business side of your practice. We also helped form seven physician-led Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) through the Medicare Shared Savings Program. MNS provides complete operations and management services to three ACOs in Maryland.


   Contact us to learn how we can provide credible, physician-centric resources to help your independent group thrive.
