Dr Jake Bonde is a Rheumatologist who has been practicing in the Bangkok Hospital in the Bangkok city of Thailand for almost past 10 years now. Dr Jake is an extrovert person and to vent out some of the interesting ideas about the Rheumatology field, its future and related things, he maintains a blog where he posts 2-3 times a week.
Dr Jake Bonde claims that 80% of the patients that come to him come for the treatment of Arthritis or Osteoporosis, 10% come for the treatment of Fibromyalgia and the rest 10% for other issues.
Dr Jake has won numerous awards for research in the field of Rheumatology and himself and his family are proud of the same.
Dr Jake says that it is too tough for a new rheumatologist to earn a lavish living as no patient wants to compromise when the matter is of their bones; They all want a Rheumatologist with experience. Dr Jake says that the best advice for a new Rheumatologist is to practice in a village or remote area or score a slot in a hospital. Dr Jake says that he was advised by his uncle who is a general practitioner that he will do great as a young rheumatologist if he can score a slot in a hospital otherwise his future is skeptical; Dr Jake listened to his GP uncle and did as he said only to kiss his uncle on the forehead later as an expression of gratitude.
Dr Jake is a real patriot, when they were all looking for a chance to go to the US or Western Europe to practice, Dr Jake rejected all the invitations to go and practice in the Malta, Canada, USA and Italy.
Dr Jake is a Baccarat (บาคาร่า) freak and the only thing that he loves more than the bones is nothing but a good game of Baccarat which I doubt he is playing right now as well.
