Doctors who treat presidents become physicians in chief.
Dealing with unsolicited advice
Retired Navy Rear Adm. E. Connie Mariano, MD, an internist, took over as President Bill Clinton's chief physician and head
of the White House Medical Unit in 1993. During Clinton's presidency, Dr. Mariano fielded calls from fellow physicians trying
to lend a hand. "Every doctor in the world loves to second-guess you. They'd see [the president] on television and call and
say that he has whatever lesion they thought it was on his face. I'd say, 'How do you know that?' And they'd say, 'Well, I
saw it on television.' "
A chance for private care
Retired Navy Rear Adm. E. Connie Mariano, MD, treats President Bill Clinton in the White House's private quarters after
his 1997 quadricep surgery. Dr. Mariano changed the way the president's health care is delivered by instituting mandated 24-hour
coverage from White House physicians. She joined the White House Medical Unit after giving a strong answer in her job interview
with Burton Lee III, MD, then chief physician to George H.W. Bush. "You know, Dr. Lee, it's payback time. I owe a lot to the
United States. My father was from the Philippines. He was a poor man, and he joined the U.S. Navy. That gave him a career,
and his kids went to school here. I owe so much to this country."
Dr. Connie Mariano
For the last four years, Dr. Mariano has practiced
in the Executive Health program at Mayo Clinic Scottsdale. The previous nine years she served as the White House Physician.
In her office, 100 feet from the Oval Office, Presidents and First Ladies relied on Dr. Mariano's advice
and treatment. The personal health and well being of the leader of the free world rested in Dr. Mariano's hands, 24 hours
a day, anywhere in the world
