I'm sorry I cannot provide more detail about my patients in an online forum.
It is a rheoteical question. This patient and ANY PATIENT with his plan requiring an outpatient surgery, has equal or less access to that care, than they had before ACA. That is fact, and when it applies to an entire ...

In the scenario I provided earlier, where the patient had "insurance", but no coverage for a preventative procedure, explain to be me how ACA is enhancing preventative care.
That is all. ...

Need a versatile wardrobe.
Get several pairs of relatively cheap, but comfortable DARK pants. (Olive, gray, black, navy, etc).
Get several well fitting, non-iron, piqued dress shirts. I get mine from Vanheusen. I rarely wear nice shirts (Ie Brooks Brothers) to work b/c of blood and other ...

"Insurance" and actual real life coverage are 2 very different animals, this is often overlooked by those studies.
With regards to the decrease in hospital acquired problems, that is a twofold answer
1. increased General awareness of prevention of nosocomial problems
2. More "creative" d...

I am a surgical subspecialist.
I recently scheduled a pt for surgery who had switched from Medicaid to an Obama-care exchange plan.
The surgery was/is not emergent but more preventative in nature. Outpatient procedure.
The "insurance" he had provided good coverage for clinic visits, la...

I would avoid the super light rifles in anything higher than a 270.
Had a T3 lite in a 7 mag, killed a few animals with it, but never really enjoyed shooting it. Kicked like a mule. Also, those really lite guns don't seem to hold target as well for me. Switched to a Sako A7 long range and I c...

Gene chizik came to auburn , had a few moderately successful seasons, then he caught lightning in a bottle with cam. They had a great year, then it became clear that there were deeper issues, he went 8-5, then 3-8, and was fired 2 years after winning a National Championship.
Kevin Sumlin had mo...

Ok. To those of you who believe that "white privilege" is the source of most/all inequality, answer this.

As a surgeon, I have always felt that if you don't possess the knowledge and skills to treat/fix damn near all possible scenarios, complications, and curveballs you may encounter during the procedure, then you probably shouldn't be doing the procedure in the first place.
Without knowing much abo...

Any and all types of health care reform are doomed to fail unless the "average citizen" , I.e. median income, is able to afford non-catastrophic health care costs for their family as an out of pocket expense.

| Tiger Rant|| re: Wow. Can't believe Loston didn't get drafted. - tomcatrav on 5/10/14 at 6:29 pm|
I always felt Loston could be a successful OLB in a 3-4.
He would need to put on a few lb's, but he always did a pretty good job against the run. And while his coverage skills were limited as a safety, he would do better than most OLB's, and his speed would be a definite plus.
