Robert (Bob) M. Walters, MD served the Austin community for 27 years before he passed away in 2010. By all accounts, Bob was a highly skilled hand surgeon and an even better person. Many may have known Bob personally, but what most might not know is that he had worked for years to develop and perfect a device to help patients with arthritic thumb pain. He was in the process of applying for a patent when his life ended unexpectedly.
Tim Gueramy, MD, co-founder and CEO of DocbookMD, recalls Dr. Walters mentoring him and urging him to push forward on his dream of creating a software platform to connect busy physicians. The process of launching DocbookMD was an eye-opening experience for Dr. Gueramy and co-founder Tracey Haas, DO. The difficulties of navigating their new venture in addition to their busy medical practices demonstrated the headwind that other physicians encounter when launching their own creative ideas. To honor Dr. Walters and to ease the burden for other physician entrepreneurs, Drs. Gueramy and Haas founded a non-profit physician incubator to help physicians bring their creative ideas to life.
