Dr. Tony Dale

Founder and Board Chairman

Tony, a British native, grew up in Taiwan and Britain and trained at the world-renowned Royal and Ancient Hospital of St. Bartholomew (“St. Bart’s”) in London, England. He met his wife Felicity during his time at St. Bart’s. After practicing family medicine in East London, Tony and his family moved to the United States in 1987. Tony’s interest in medical economics began following his experience with the American medical system when he needed knee surgery in 1996. From his personal experience of the inconsistencies and staggering cost of the system, Tony determined to find a way to help people find better access to quality and affordable care, founding The Karis Group in 1996.

Today, Tony and Felicity enjoy the great pleasure of being grandparents as their four children are grown.

Favorite Book
How do I answer this, as I am always reading a new book? For years I have had a pattern of reading one novel and one book that is factual, so that I am growing in all sorts of areas of knowledge. I love good spy novels, true-life adventure and biography.

The most recent great biography was Unbroken.

Favorite Weekend Activity
Movie and dinner out with my wife Felicity and time spent on the Squash Court.

Favorite Quote
“But do I not dare to boast about anything except what Christ has accomplished through me.” Romans 15:18

This has really been my life verse, leading me to believe that we can accomplish anything that God asks us to do.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasm, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt
