  • NPs & PAs Are Talking – Convenient Care, Acute Care, Career Uncertainty

    Last week, retail clinics were a hot topic. On Twitter, we retweeted an article from @Health_Affairs: ''New Web First online now. Retail Clinic Use Growing Rapidly http://tinyurl.com/9e4jh9y  (Free access for two weeks).'' The article highlights the benefits of convenient care, such as longer hours. However, our article The Forked Tongue of ...

  • Double Duty

    I have admittedly been remiss in submitting blogs in a timely manner and actually have a deadline of 5 pm today! Me, Miss OCD! How could this happen? Well, for one, work days are so busy sometimes that I barely have time to breathe -- average patient seen 25 to 30, from STD exams to primary care. And since I decided to take full advantage of ...

  • 24 Hours on Call

    I have mentioned in many blogs how much I love being a nurse practitioner. I have enjoyed the opportunities I have been afforded by associating with so many wonderful professionals and they have paved the way for me. THANK YOU! The opportunity I am referring to is my role as an independent contractor for a gerontology group. One year ago I ...

  • The Little Clinic That Could

    Life has really settled down a little over 5 months into my job at the Martin County Health Department and my little satellite clinic in Oak City. As mentioned in previous posts, the Oak City Clinic was renovated from a little firehouse by a $56,000 grant from the GoldenLeaf Foundation. There was little money for necessary accoutrements so ...

  • The Heart Home

    I am seeking the help of my online community. Several blogs ago I had mentioned the desire to start my own business, but was unsure what I actually wanted to do, so I purchased the book, ''How to Start an Independent Practice'' by Carolyn R. Zaumeyer. This book was filled with a step by step approach to all the tools one will need to start a ...

  • A New Option to Volumize and Tighten the Face

    ePrime is a minimally invasive aesthetic device that delivers measured radio frequency directly into the skin using microneedles. In theory, this procedure creates a controlled wound healing process. The process is similar to that provided by fractionated lasers, however with ePrime there is no thermal impact to the epidermis. This makes the ...

  • 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 ...

  • The Art of Time Management

    We have all been to see a healthcare provider with a checklist of things we wish to accomplish during a visit. Isn't that why we go? Time management skills in medicine are essential. As providers, we have to find a nice balance that gives patients our undivided attention yet maintains efficiency and allows us to be productive. My goal in time ...
