Holy cow!!  There is information coming my way all day every day about COVID-19. The information of utmost importance to me is what my patients are needing, what the best healthcare practices are, what vitamins/herbs are warranted right now, what drugs are worsening infections, what drugs are improving outcomes, what populations are at greatest risk, what percentage of infected people have each of the symptoms, what the testing options are, what studies [...]

Healthcare for a Vibrant Life

What if when you came to your doctor for an annual exam, you were asked not only if you were taking any new medications or when your last mammogram was.
