Adam Root, for as long as he could remember, wanted to be a doctor like his father. As a single parent, his father raised four children. Root idolized his father. Root was an outstanding student in high school and in medical school. After completing his residency, he joined a small private primary care practice in the Boston area. The practice grew because of Root's significant contribution. After a 10-year period, the practice had grown in excess of 40 practitioners. But Root was spending almost every waking hour devoted to the practice. He finally reached the point of "burnout." He was spending little if any time with his family and was exhausted. He realized he had to do something and yet wasn't quite sure what to do. This is the A case in a series of three cases (B case: UVA-OB-0993 and C case: UVA-OB-0994).
