Dr. Wohlgemuth on giving back to his community Read Transcript
We get asked every day to sponsor things and what we try to do is instead of from the office doing one or two big things, we try to let every patient know we do contribute to all the schools, the yearbooks, all the different schools, the sports organizations, and sponsoring teams. Actually, in the office, we have a… I don't know if the pictures are up, I used to have all my team photos up, decorating the whole office and sometimes, now I'm at a stage where parents will go back and see themselves on a team when they were 12, and now their 12 year-olds are on it.
You know, Boca Hoops or SABR, which is the soccer organization and towards that, I treated the grandchildren of the guy who started Boca Hoops. I treated the director of the soccer's league because when you start interactingand when I was younger, I was coaching and so that's when you realize even though Boca Raton is well known because it's sort of the Beverly Hills of south Florida.
It's not that big of a community, so what ends up happening is the gentleman who's maybe your landscape person, you treat in the office and also is understanding. One of the things I've always done for firefighters, police officers, public servants, we do give them some courtesy because that's something that I've always felt that they're underpaid, relative to their value to the community. Sometimes, we give teacher courtesies, so it's again, a way of just appreciating and letting everyone know, it's not just about the money. If you treat people right, the money follows, but if you focus on the money, then people sense that and they're gonna move away.
Dr. Peter Wohlgemuth and Dr. Ira Rothstein also support numerous synagogues, churches, and various endeavors in which our patients are involved. Both are members of the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce.
Dr. Wohlgemuth’s family is actively in the community as well. His wife, Ilene, is on the board of directors for the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County. She is also the chairperson for the local PJ Library, which distributes free Jewish books, music, and other resource materials to young children in more than 1,400 local homes.
