12A Wednesday, May 12, 2010 Feather River Bulletin New doc glad he went rural Linda Satchwell Staff Writer Trey Brader, the new family practice physician at Eastern Plumas Health Care's Graea- gle Clinic, may stand out as an anomaly, but according to him, the move had been "a long time coming." At 41, Brader is approxi- mately 30 years younger than the average Graeagle resident. And the pace here, anyone will admit, is... well, a tad slower than in the city-- espe- cially a city like Austin, Texas, where Brader comes from. His decision to move to Graeagle was a well-consid- ered one, however. Brader was a locums physician here twice before -- most recently in 2007 --08. He was ready at that time to stay, but he had two years left on his locums contract and he would have had to pay offthe his employer if he had re- mained at that time. So, he returned to Austin and worked there while he waited out the two years. That gave him plenty of time to make sure he wanted to make a permanent move. Brader seems comfortable with the decision to exchange the big city for small-town life. He said he's old enough to re- alize that as long as a town has "the basics," he'll be fine, and the two nearby towns of Portola and Quincy answer that requirement. "I'm happy to be here," he said, and laughed about how staff keeps checking in with him to see ifhe's OK with the place. Besides, he really enjoys his coworkers. "Everyone in this group has their strengths to contribute," he said. He also praised Chief Execu- tive Officer Tom Hayes, who is "doing a great job." The doctors start each day doing hospital rounds togeth- er. "It's a good feeling every morning ... working together. It's positive," said Brader. In addition, they're talking about building up the Graea- gle clinic, adding same day and urgent care appoint- ments, as well as shortening appointment times so they can work .more people in. That way, people who have strep throat or a laceration, for example, won't be forced to go to the emergency room, ac- cording to Brader. Hayes said part of the rea- son he's so happy to have Brader on staff is that he's try- ing to "create a continuity of physician coverage in the Graeagle/Plumas Pines area ... the biggest challenge in re- cent years is continuity of cov- erage," he said. Brader said he chose family medicine because he "wanted to do everything ... didn't want to be limited to one specialty." When he started practicing, he helped to open a new emer- gency room m Austin. Af- ter two years, he tired of the 72-hour shifts and, faced with a new emergency room certifi- cation requirement, he decid- ed to "hit the road3 He chose to be a locums physician for the experience and the ability to travel. Now that he's decided to set- tle down, he brings a wealth of experience with him. It's great, he said, to come to a rather remote area and be able to do everything from de- livering babies to performing surgery. Of course, his emer- gency room background is helpful, as well. Brader offered some insight into the choice of going rural. "You have to have a bit of courage to do it," he said, "be- cause in the city, there's a hos- pital right there and a wealth of specialists. "Here, you do the first cou- ple of steps on your own the initial work-up and decision making." After that, Brader chooses whether to treat pa- tients or transfer them. A case in point, Graeagle resident Bob Marks went into the Graeagle clinic recently to see Brader. Marks was having symptoms that made him con- cerned he might be having a heart attack. Marks said of Brader, "He's very progressive, he thinks / COMMUNITY CORNER Trey Brader, the new family practice physician based primarily at Eastern Plumas Health Care's Graeagle clinic, has moved here recently from Austin, Texas. Brader was a Iocums physician for EPHC in 2007-08 and had to wait two years to relocate perma- nently. Photo by Linda Satchwell outside of the box ... I like him for the simple reason that he's not afraid to go in a different direction." Marks felt very fortunate that Brader was at the Graea- gle clinic when he arrived as a walk-in. "Hopefully, there's going to be enough business to keep him in Graeagle," he added. For Brader's part, the move to Graeagle was a long time in the making, and he feels good about living and working here. "I finally made it," he said. "It seems like it all came together."
