Speed dating is a formalized process in which people are encouraged to meet others. Each participant will have four minutes with each of the providers scheduled to participate. Cards will be given to each attendee with a basic description of each provider. It’s a unique, fun and non-stressful way community members can find a new physician for themselves and their families.”We’ll get you in and out to accommodate your busy schedule and you’ll walk away with a free lunch and a confident feeling that you’ve met some great doctors,” said Dr. Pasquale Bernardi, vice president of Centegra Physician Care. “The community members will get to experience that the doctors here are passionate, caring and want to connect with their patients.” Centegra Physician Care includes more than 60 physicians practicing many different specialties at seven convenient locations throughout McHenry County. All the Centegra Physician Care facilities use electronic medical records that provide easier access for other members of the medical team and help keep patient care plans moving forward.
