  • Privacy and Confidentiality

    I don't know about you, but there isn't a day that goes by when I don't have some sort of umm....interesting experience at work. I understand how awfully tempting it is to jump on Facebook or Twitter and share the events of my day with all 100+ or so of my closest ''friends''. It's so very rewarding to watch a post collect ''likes'' and ...

  • The Quarterly Check-Up: Part 3

    We have carved deep into the second half of my first year as a professional physician assistant. This is the perfect time for a Quarterly Check-Up to examine some of the biggest lessons over the last three months We learned that our patient's beliefs can trump the strongest medicine and that our acceptance of those beliefs makes us better ...

    Question for you:  How do you find your medical provider? The most obvious of answers to this question is our dear friend, Google. What was life like before this search engine giant? I don't remember. I mean, seriously, who doesn't google twenty things throughout the course of the day? The truth is, however, there ...

  • Challenging Patients in the Correctional Facility

  • Divisions of the Medical Team

    There are several divisions to the medical department at the correctional facility, and for the most part, everyone works collaboratively. There is the medical team consisting of myself, my collaborative physician and our nurse, an LPN.

  • Don't Pass Off Acne Extractions

    A crucial part of total acne therapy involves extractions of comedones at least once a month, depending on acne severity. Many dermatology offices offer acne facials performed by a medical esthetician. This is a nice option because it frees the provider for other services and offers a medically-focused facial to the patient. But in many cases I ...

  • Retail Clinic Strategery

      Opening my Providence (Rhode Island) Journal this morning (OK, online), I saw yet another report on physician objections to retail or convenient care clinics. The same article, but with different names, has been showing up about once a week somewhere in the country for the past 3 years. The article always cites physician charges that ...
