  • The Way Healthcare Used to Be

    I find myself thinking quite a bit about how much healthcare has changed since I was young and trying to figure out how it is that we have come to find ourselves in our current situation. I just want to state, for the record, that I am not that old. I was a kid in the 60s and I had my children during the 70s and early 80s. I am not talking ...

  • 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 ...

  • Fielding Patients’ Cosmetic Interest

    If you are looking to step up your cosmetic business or incorporate aesthetics to your office for the first time, in-office questionnaires are an easy and effective means to field patient interest.  The exact content of questionnaires is completely up to you. They may be simple or more elaborate for a purely cosmetic ...

  • Help Your Dermatologist Help You

    More dermatological procedures, such as biopsies and excisions, are being done in primary care settings than ever before. With this in mind I want to give everyone some food for thought as to how they can more accurately read the pathology. As clinicians seeing patients, we have the advantage of talking to a patient, seeing their rashes and ...

  • Physicians and Us

    I'm not a doctor basher. In fact I'm actually quite the contrary. Over the course of my career I have worked with some great docs. They have been encouraging, helpful and generally treated me as a peer. During my education I had physician preceptors and early in my career I had physician mentors. In my practice I have consulted with ...

  • Making the Most of Cosmeceuticals in 2013

    Tired of buying over the counter products that just don't work? So are patients! One of my passions for what I do is finding just the fix for someone -- something that will work and improve their condition. Pharmacy aisles and mall cosmetic counters are now flooded with an overwhelming quantity of products of varying ...

  • NPs & PAs Are Talking - The Silver Lining of Nursing

    Last week, NP & PA Student blogger Terry Clarke shared his concerns over the status of nursing. ''I am currently in a class called ‘Societal Forces' as a precursor to my first semester of advanced assessment in the Adult/Gero Primary Care Nurse Practitioner track. The teachers are passionate and well informed. The speakers are excellent, but ...

  • My Four Favorite Derm Cases

      1. A patient presents with a new spot on the nose for 3 months. No history of skin cancer. I believe it's a BCC and path proves it's a SCC, WOW! 2. Ceruloderma, a drug-induced pigmentation secondary to Lupus medication.   3. ''Show and Tell:'' I love a zip lock bag attached to the chart on the door. This patient was proud of the ...

  • The DNP in the ED

    Q: Please describe the DNP role in your NP specialty. A: I will step up on my DNP soapbox once again to say that completing your DNP serves to open up a new way of thinking, a way to approach your practice. It is not an avenue for developing a new position or making more money. The DNP provides you with the tools and resources to ...

  • NP Population Boom

    A report published this week in a public health journal predicts that by 2025, twice as many nurse practitioners will be in practice in the United States. This brings our numbers from 128,000 in 2008 up to a staggering 244,000 over the course of the next 12 years. Yes, you read that correctly, that is almost a quarter of a million NPs. I will ...
