I had my first jaw dropping patient last week. You know, working
in cardiology, you see a lot of the same thing. Acute coronary syndrome, atrial
fib, heart failure...Turn 'em and burn 'em, that's my motto. Thursday, I had my
first patient that I was completely side-bombed over.
That day, an 86-year-old female presented to the ED for ...
Whether you currently have acne or have suffered from
acne in the past, one thing we know for sure is that acne changes our
skin. This includes dark spots, red spots and indentations that remain
well after acne lesions have cleared. Exactly how this is treated is a

As the universities and secondary schools are
preparing for spring break, it is important that we are educated and educate
our young patients on the dangers of ultraviolet exposure. I am going to focus

the proper care and treatment for potential scarring is important to know before the
damage is done. Among my favorite initial scar treatments is the topical
use of Biocorneum. This silicone based gel acts as an anti-inflammatory,
improves redness of scars and helps ...
Lately it seems a rash (no pun intended) of patients have
asked me how it was that they contracted their Staph infections. Some had MRSA,
others MSSA. Some suffered from bacteremia, others osteomyelitis, and others
still were challenged by skin/soft tissue infections in the form of painful and

I don't know how many of my fellow NPs and PAs have seen and
or heard about HBO's four-part documentary on obesity in America, The Weight of the Nation, but I can't
recommend it enough: it is an awesome and totally relevant examination of
health in the States.

A dear friend of mine recently informed me that her doctor confirmed she has melanoma. ''I have always been a ‘moley' person,'' she explained, and proceeded to tell me that her doctor had removed six to seven ''spots'' from various places on her body.
