"Whether we are in the yard planting flowers, hiking in nearby Kennedy Park, exploring a quaint village for the day, paddleboarding on Stockbridge Bowl, snowshoeing with friends in the winter, or apple picking and pumpkin carving in the fall, there's always something to do in nature." The region also boasts a farm- to-table lifestyle that, thanks to the bounty of working farms in the area, is an authentic part of daily life in the Berkshires. "We are able to get amazing locally grown organic produce at Berkshire Organics Market, but we get out to the farms, too, to meet the farmers and see where our food is grown as often as we can," says Opperman. "To this day, I still learn of new things to see and do from patients, and I've been here for seven years now," says Opperman. "The Berkshires has layers, and I haven't found one I didn't like." That includes her experience as a physician working alongside a cadre of dedicated colleagues that care for their patients, and who are also neighbors and friends. Says Opperman, "It has been empowering to grow and develop into the clinician I am today, with such support from the health system and a true focus on patient- centered care." Beaufort, South Carolina Charleston without the traffic? That's Beaufort, South Carolina, a charming coastal town located on Port Royal Island, one of the largest Sea Islands. Residents take every chance they can to enjoy the area's beautiful waterways, and the moderate year-round climate means almost every day can be spent outdoors. Coupled with numerous walking districts, friendly residents and excellent health care, Beaufort is an ideal location for physicians to practice medicine in a patient-first, physician-focused environment, while finding tranquility during off time.
