I have big fan of Vice President Joe Biden since I volunteered and donated to his ill-fated 1980 Presidential campaign. So you can imagine my happiness when I found out that his daughter, Ashley, was engaged to my doctor, Dr. Howard Krein.
Dr. Krein is a very nice, thorough doctor. He is part of a big ear, nose and throat practice. My only complaint is that he kept me waiting over an hour and did not offer any apology when he did finally see me.
The office is very automated probably due to Krein’s sideline. Having grown up in the days when doctors make house calls, I find it jarring to be asked by the receptionist to type my name into the computer and sit down.
His brother Steve is a serial internet entrepreneur. His latest venture is organised Wisdom, which “helps doctors set up their digital offices in minutes.” The website boasts, “The Most Effective Way to Save Doctors Time While Creating Healthier, Happier Patients”.
Internet Guru Esther Dyson and former Time Warner CEO Gerry Levin, who was labelled the “Worst CEO of all time” by Portfolio, are associated with the company. Howard Krein is Chief Medical Officer at OrganizedWisdom Health.
Employees at his practice told me that Howard is proud of being Jewish so expect some Jewish elements at the wedding. Maybe that will shut up some of Obama’s Jewish critics. The wedding is expected to be at the Naval Observatory, which is the office home of the Vice-President.
While Ashley Biden is marrying outside her Catholic religion, she not marrying outside of her party. She is marrying a liberal.
