At our practice we strive to set ourselves apart from the rest. There are many different dermatology and cosmetic practices within the vicinity that patients could visit.

The other day, I came across an article about Val Patterson, a man who was diagnosed with terminal throat cancer. What made his story memorable was that before passing away on July 10, 2012, he wrote his own obituary. It was printed in his local newspaper and then throughout the world.

word ''no'' is very powerful and can be used in many ways. ''No'' can be used as a
safety mechanism. For example, ''No, you cannot mix Plavix and omeprazole,'' or,
''No, I don't believe that is a nodule, but a fatty tumor, which is normal.'' In

and often left the clinic without notice, anyone ...
Dear Career Coach: I am a new graduate and will be starting my job search soon. I am wondering how to know what salary I can expect? How can I evaluate whether or not the offer is fair?
