whats happening in the clinic, those insurance companies s---, komenark race

at the tail end of ragweed and weed(not pot) season
am seeing less severe cases this week

have not seen any flu cases this week but did
last week
am giving tons of flu shots this year
the more people that get the flu shots the less
of an outbreak we will have

again get your flu shots this year

had a young patient with a seizure this week
she gets them a lot
occurred while was examining her
had ems come get her to take to the
emergency room but after the seizure she
was her usual self in an hour so family decided
to not take her to the emergency room
she has hard to control seizures-is on 3 medications
that keep the numbers of seizures down

have noticed most people are understanding about
being late to see them when this happens

the health reform law starting september 23 allows children
to get an individual health insurance policy (lot of my patients
have them) without worrying about preexisting conditions

well the top five health insurance companies-look at your
insurance card you probably have insurance with them-
a few days before the deadline all decided they would
no longer write policies for children to get their own
individual policies

lot of parents who cant afford their insurance would at
least buy an individual policy for their child to
make sure the child has health insurance
not now  those companies dont sell them anymore

those insurance companies suck
those insurance companies suck

komenarkansas race for the cure is this weekend
my nephews wife my brothers wife  my niece she are
all doing the race
they have met their goal for donations

think of it they have provided money for 3 women
who can not afford a mammogram to get it in arkansas

congratulations and good luck
