Dr. Philip Lisagor, MD


Philip Lisagor, MD is a retired thoracic surgeon. He has served as Chief of Surgery, Reno VAMC, Assistant Dean University of Nevada School of Medicine, Vice Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery Brooke Army Medical Center, Deputy Commander for Clinical Services, Medical Brigade in Iraq, and Chief of Quality Management for US Army Medical Command. During this career he realized that patients/families and loved ones weren't being engaged in health care discussions and he eventually developed ROYL as a web app to help with Rest of Your Life planning. Since retirement, Dr. Lisagor has worked to bring ROYL to a wide range of health care stakeholders and their patients and clients.
