Patrick Sullivan started his career in emergency medicine and migrated to internal medicine. Before retiring last year, he served as chief of medicine and chief of staff at two hospitals. A lifelong woodworker, he is building an entertainment center and a fireplace surround for his new house in California, but still has not found a permanent home for all his tools.
