I have been practicing medicine for the last 20 years, and I have encountered more questions, conditions, and ailments than you can possibly imagine. Despite seeing so many unique cases, I have found that there are many common problems and questions that I have helped my patients with over the years. I realized that many people outside of my practice have a number of the same health concerns and questions that my patients do. This blog is a great opportunity to share the knowledge and experience I have gained over the last 20+ years as a Internist. To help provide you, and anyone who is interested, with useful and timely health tips, I have created a series called ‘Hump Day Health Tips.’ I chose Wednesday, or Hump Day, because it’s the middle of the week where everyone is looking for that little extra kick to get them to the weekend. These health tips are designed to be simple ideas to give you an idea of some of the things I have encountered while helping my patients. Starting today, I will be posting regular health tips on Wednesdays that will cover a variety of topics. If you see any post that you would like to learn more about, or have a suggestion for a new health tip, just leave a comment, and I will try to provide as much information as I can.
