Dendreon’s Provenge: Interview With Head, Large Urology Group Practice

Seeking Alpha Logo

On March 7, 2012, I interviewed Dr. Deepak A. Kapoor, MD, Chairman and CEO, Integrated Medical Professionals, PLLC, or IMP. Dr. Kapoor is one of the youngest physicians to have been certified by the American Board of Urology and comes to IMP with more than 20 years of clinical and business experience. He received his B.S. magna cum laude from the Pennsylvania State University and his MD from Jefferson Medical College, in the Accelerated Five Year Honors Program. He completed his residency at Geisinger Medical Center, after which he served as Assistant Professor of Urologic Surgery at the University of Minnesota Medical Center. His medical background is diverse with both laboratory and clinical experience, both in the academic and private sectors. Dr. Kapoor´s expertise includes basic science research in molecular biology as well as extensive experience in oncologic and reconstructive surgery.

Presently, Dr. Kapoor is president of the Large Urology Group Practice Association, Director and Immediate Past Chairman of Access to Integrated Cancer Care (an informal advocacy group representing the rights of patients to access integrated services of the highest quality), Chairman of SCRUBS RRG (the only national Urology-specific medical malpractice carrier), a member of the Board of Directors of Allied Urological Services (the largest lithotripsy partnership in the United States, where he also functions as chairman of the Finance Committee), and Founder and Past-President of the Integrated Medical Foundation. Prior to his tenure with IMP, Dr. Kapoor functioned as managing partner of Long Island Urological Associates, during which time LIUA enjoyed double digit growth in each year of his leadership despite declining medical reimbursements nationally.

IMP is a multi-specialty physician group comprising more than 100 physicians operating in the greater New York Metropolitan area. IMP’s model is to forward integrate surgical specialists at the point of patient contact with physicians that provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to those patients. IMP’s vision is to provide our patients with the highest level of care available, as measured by both clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction.
