  • How to Avoid Absolute Frustration

    Primary care is so imperfect. Each day I could probably find as many things to complain about as complaints my patients come in with, and I am beginning to see why burnout can occur. That is, if you don't have the right perspective. As I forge ahead on this year-one journey, I am creating tenets to avoid burnout. I'm honestly not a huge ...

  • 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 ...

  • The Power of Brows

    If our eyes are the windows to our soul, then our eyebrows are most certainly the curtains. And it has been studied to be true - eyes are the first thing another person notices about our appearance.  With all the care that goes into taking care of our eyes, I find that eyebrows are often overlooked. The shape of our brows is very ...

  • Pet Therapy

    Occasionally after clinic, I will allow my red fox labrador retriever to assist me in chart completion and pathology management. I absolutely love having her nap under my desk and her presence brightens up our entire office.   I live in a very dog friendly community and the majority of my patients own a dog, which makes an easy ...

  • Step Away From the Magnifying Mirror

    Okay, okay.  Magnifying mirrors may have their place in the world. But for your skin's sake, please stay as far away from them as you can! I am a firm believer that more often than not your skin will improve the less you do to irritate it. When I removed my trusted and powerfully lit magnifying mirror from my counter a ...

  • Lessons Learned in my Clinical Year

    Graduation day is just around the corner (but who is counting?), so I've decided to reflect back on the ''lessons learned'' during my clinical year of PA school. It has been a challenging and rewarding experience for me. There have been ups and downs; both were very much needed. Live and learn, as they say. Avoid asking questions that ...

  • Embracing Old Age

    The other day, I came across a poem that was written by an older man who was living in a nursing home.  It is a touching poem, so I've decided to share it with you.  Although the poem addresses nurses specifically, I believe that its message is to everyone, regardless of one's profession. It is a reminder that, despite our age or ...
