There’s that famous saying, “Some are born great, some
achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.” I think it can be

The time has come! I've passed boards, obtained my state license and I am scheduled to have ''temporary privileges'' at my facility next week! This is such an exciting time for my family and me! We've worked so hard for so many years and this is it.
The really amusing thing? I opened the mail a couple of weeks ago when my license came through ...
As the universities and secondary schools are

our young patients on the dangers of ultraviolet exposure. I am going to focus

The old steel radiators chitter like a multitude of sparrows and my seat was built for someone with a smaller number of dietary choices. The nurse who ...
technology are quickly replacing the concept of the one-man show. A recent news
briefing noted on the major differences between Baby Boomer Physicians and
even the doctors of Generation “X” versus the new hires of Generation “Y,” but
who will bridge the transitional gap? As younger physicians and pathologists continue
to join the ...
