A blog about what I've learned along my journey. Join me in my quest for knowledge.

Considerations to keep in mind:
 
      Any medicine or health related advice discussed here should in no way stand in for an expert exam or opinion.  Medically trained personnel are far better at making medical decisions than you are even after reading this blog and WebMD.
   
   Any opinion expressed here is my own and not that of any current, previous, or future employer.
 
   Any patient scenarios are strictly generalizations or hypothetical cases, not actual people I have seen in practice.

    Why I've Decided NOT to Blog as a Writer
    After a lot of time, research, and consideration, I have decided not to blog as a writer.  As any professional would, I want to do everything I can to grow my business.  However, blogging about writing does not fit the bill, at least for now.

    How Twitter made me feel like a Stalker - I mean a Fan
