Member Testimonials

“The HCMA has allowed me to meet and engage with area physicians while working together to advocate for our profession and our patients. I’m thankful we have such a strong county medical association.” -Eva Crooke, MD, OBGYN

“The HCMA has been of great value to me as it has helped me make many connections locally, specifically within the medical community. HCMA graciously hosts resident only events and includes us in events happening within our community. As a resident representative for the HCMA Executive Council, I have been able to work on my leadership skills and really see what goes into making this amazing association even better.” -Alexandra Witt, MD, USF resident

"Having been a member throughout my medical career, I've watched the HCMA evolve from a social society into a sophisticated membership organization that knows how to advocate for physicians and their patients." -Bruce Shephard, MD, retired OBGYN

“I am incredibly grateful for the support and advocacy of the Hillsborough County Medical Association, an organization that works tirelessly to strengthen our physician community. From the day our students are admitted to the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine, HCMA is there to help them grow, provide scholarships, host social events for students and residents, and connect them with mentoring and leadership opportunities. HCMA also helps connect our faculty physicians to the broader community, affording them opportunities to connect with Tampa Bay’s private practice physicians. Finally, HCMA advocates for all physicians on a broader stage, working to educate local and state officials on the needs and challenges that confront us as we practice medicine during these uniquely challenging times. We need and value their efforts and appreciate all HCMA does to improve health across Tampa Bay.” -Charles Lockwood, MD, Senior VP, USF Health, Dean, Morsani College of Medicine

“The HCMA has played a major role in my life as a physician in Tampa. I have met so many wonderful people and made so many friends that I would never have encountered otherwise. The HCMA has given me opportunities and made me to see the big picture and the future of medicine. It drew me out of my office and opened the world of medicine which allowed me to make a difference both for my patients and my fellow physicians. If not for the HCMA, the independence and quality of life that we physicians enjoy in Tampa would not nearly be so great.” -Joel Silverfield, MD, Rheumatologist
