When Doctors Can CareMore
Paul Di Capua MED ’09 SOM ’09 unloaded his medical gear from the trunk of a Toyota. It was a typical day on the job for the primary care physician. Di Capua slung his bag onto his back, hiked a scale under his arm and then trooped across his patient’s lawn.
An elderly man with diabetes, hepatitis C and a heart condition waited for Di Capua. The man lived on the top floor of an apartment complex, and the steps leading up to his unit were narrow enough for Di Capua, a healthy middle-aged man, to have to climb slowly in order to not lose his footing.
