  • A Sample Dermatology Protocol

      Many nurse practitioners have asked me about dermatology protocols. They are no different from other protocols and should be an outline of your practice agreement with your supervising or collaborating physician. These protocols should remain broad and general, but list important and specific aspects of your practice like prescribing ...

  • Practice What You Preach

    Before I started my nurse practitioner program I was happy where I was in regards to my health. I was at a great weight, my diet had been free of any processed sugars and grains, and I was working out several times a week. By the time I started clinicals in my primary care site I felt like a hypocrite. I had not been to see my PCP in 2 ...

  • Successful Weight Loss

    Over half of the US population is overweight. Most of us are considering again our old resolution for the New Year - losing weight. Fad diets that require severe calorie restriction have historically failed us long-term. Many of us lose weight with these diets temporarily, but then the weight comes on again, and is usually much more ...

  • “Bleaching” an Outdated Term

    A common concern among patients is treating and improving skin tone and brown spots on the skin, particularly the face. These changes can often be reflections of long term sun exposure or hormonal changes. We have many options for treating such conditions; however, our go-to treatment remains topical creams because of their effectiveness, low ...

  • Skin Care > Coffee

    When attending a skin care seminar, learning about a company's product line and how you could potentially incorporate certain items into your practice is the intended purpose. However, one of the greatest things you can take from such an experience is far more than just information from a PowerPoint slide or an ingredients list. For ...

  • When a Rash is Not a Rash

    Every day thousands of people go to their practitioner's offices, walk-in clinics and emergency rooms complaining of a ''rash''. Some of them itch, some of them don't. Some have been present for a few days, some for many years. Some come and go sporadically without warning, some present acutely, some appear like clockwork at specific times of ...

  • Beauty Rx – Catch More Zzzzs!

    Most of us have been told that we need more sleep. ''If you don't sleep, you are not going to grow,'' is something that many of us heard as children and have repeated to our children. We have been aware that lack of sleep is not good for our health, but may not have understood what overall negative effects it can have on us, including our ...

  • VIP (Very Important Peels)

    Peels are a great pick me up for the skin. Think: minimal downtime. Think: glow and go. Combined with the use of great products, peels are the type of treatment that I cannot recommend enough.  I personally love superficial peels. I've always been a fan of Glycolic acid, whether in washes, creams or peels and this peel is a staple in ...

  • Battling the CPAP

    G.F. was a brilliant patient. She was exactly who I want to be when I'm 91. I met G.F. while on pulmonology consults last month. She was sitting up in bed with a CPAP machine on. Her daughter was sitting in the room, so kind and matter-of-fact, explaining how her mom was suddenly short of breath yesterday and was brought in.  ...
