our new website

OCPS would like to welcome you to our new website! The site has been designed to better serve the people of Orange County and our member physicians. We invite you to peruse the variety of helpful resources and information found throughout the site. We would like to extend our gratitude to our sponsors, the American Professional Agency and Professional Risk Management Services. Without their generous support this website would not have been possible. In addition, several individuals at OCPS contributed to the development of this site. Our IT Committee offers special thanks to Drs. Yujuan Choy, David Safani, Brenda Jensen, and our esteemed Executive Director, who dedicated much of her valuable time, and to whom we owe a considerable debt of gratitude. Finally, we would be remiss not to thank the San Diego Psychiatric Society for their kind permission to model our website after their own.
