“The Doc” President, SilverDoctors.com
The Doc’s expertise and passion in finance, economics, and market history was developed over years of intense self-education. With his doctorate in the medical field, The Doc now seeks to help the common man restore his financial health by investing in physical gold and silver.
Doc has been long gold and silver since 2001, when he entered gold at $278 and silver at $4.75. Even after seeing silver hit a 10-bagger from his initial investment in early 2011, The Doc remains a stronger silver bull than ever. He is the lead commentator on SilverDoctors.com providing insight on market breaking precious metal news.
BullRun has been a successful investor in the equity market since 1996. While the Doc was on his case trying to get him to invest in physical silver and gold since 2004 (soon after he met the Doc), it wasn’t until 2008 after the market took a dive did BullRun finally start investing in precious metals.
BullRun’s first purchase was AUY at 5.10 per share, followed by SLW at 5.41. His first physical purchase was a couple months later, 100oz bars at $10.15 per oz plus a premium of $1.99. His main responsibilities include the backend operations of SilverDoctors.com and posting under “BullRun.”

In 1992 he left this position with a community bank to start his own business in the field of brokering business loans to startup and expanding companies on the west coast. This remains his present occupation but with the current economic events in the world today, AGXIIK devotes half his time to the studying and writing about present economic issues and how they relate to the precious metals markets, personal financial safety and measures people can take to insure their well being.
As an avid reader of Silver Doctors and committed member of the ‘all in’ ownership of silver and gold he started buying in 2009 when silver was $18 and gold was $1,100.
