eClinicalWorks

eClinicalWorks

5/2/10

I chose eclinicalworks as my EMR about 6 years ago when they were just first starting out and have seen their tremendous growth over the years. They have a robust set of features for primary care and specialty offices. They also provide an enormous level of support which is always needed. I have used both their in house server model as well as their ASP model and both are relatively easy for even a single doctor with some technical knowledge to install. If you are a physicians group or solo doctor interested in using this software you should check out the forum ecwusers.com or you can PM me here on this site.

This is one of those medical devices that you need to see and experience to really believe it. The basic premise is you lose inches off of your waist line without under going surgery. The technology is based on the erchonia laser which emulsifies fat and allows it to go into the interstitial space thus reducing inches off of your body and waistline. Anyone interested in body contouring procedures should watch this episode of the rachel ray show which features the zerona

Caltrain

Caltrain

4/26/10

Caltrain is the only real way to take public transportation from the southbay to SF since BART doesn't go down that far. People ask me all the time as a doctor how they can avoid getting sick taking public transportation and what I always say is never touch anything with your hands...doorknobs, railing, etc. Use a glove or the end of a shirt ...those saniwipes don't do much so it is better not to bother with those things and avoid contact with the railings that everyone else touches. The bike cars are the ones that have the least amount of people who could have colds/flus as if they are taking their bike the odds are they are not sick, so that is the car I sit in. The only big drawback of Caltrain is that they decided against giving us public free wifi on board and have tabled that idea until the future. Until then you have to bring you own wifi on board with you but expect to lose connection now and then as you go through dead areas.

I have ordered from this company before and they have great quality and a very good price.

LifeExtension

LifeExtension

4/2/10

Good site for overall knowledge about anti-aging medicine and they do carry a wide range of supplements. I personally haven't used their supplements before but I have heard good things about this company from other anti-aging doctors. Their magazine is also worthwhile reading if you decide to get that subscription.

SINOCES

SINOCES

4/1/10

There have been many people interested in doing business with China and in particular their wholesale electronics industry. This site is affiliated with the CES (consumer electronics show) that is typically held in Vegas every year. Those interested in doing business with China may want to look into either attending the conference or looking at their list of vendors as a guide to what companies to consider for business relationships. Many of these vendors also will work with individuals and ship them products as well.

Custom Vite

Custom Vite

I discovered this website while at a conference for the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and it really is a great concept. Many people take vitamins and supplements, but what they often are paying for is the marketing and packaging of the ingredients. In a typical vitamin pill most of it is actually just filler and not the vitamin....not to mention the bottle itself is expensive to produce. What this company offers is a way to customize an individual's supplements in just a few pills and your doctors can prescribe whatever dosage they recommend for you rather than what the company thinks will sell to the masses. Great concept and well executed.

Adrenal Fatigue

Great website full of information on adrenal fatigue. Would recommend his book as well for those interested in the subject. Many physicians recommend his products for patients with adrenal fatigue.

Silber Studios

Marc Silber is a wonderful photographer that has this site set up to share his photography knowledge with the world. His site and videos are sponsored by SanDisk, which seems to be a solid partnership for him. I have found the video extremely valuable in terms of teaching me new photography techniques and they are entertaining to watch as well. These very well produced videos. I recommend any photographer to take a look at this website.

Based upon the research conducted at Emory University, this website provides an evaluation for users to self test themselves to see if they possibly have the H1N1 flu. Great resource and people may want to take this evaluation if they are sick and concerned about the flu

Merck & Co.

Merck & Co.

10/30/09

When I was in medical school, the Merck Manual was one of the books we often used to look up various diseases as they had a pocket sized version that fit in our coat pockets. Now, the entire home edition of the famed Merck Manual is available online using this link;
http://www.merck.com/pubs/
The reason I will often recommend patients to look up diseases in this format rather than on more commercial sites is that Merck is a pharmaceutical company and they do not focus on "upselling" the consumer or linking to other "paid" advertisements. They give you just the simple facts on the medical diseases and you can rest assured that physicians also use the Merck Manual as a reference tool.

FamilyDoctor.org

FamilyDoctor.org

10/30/09

Familydoctor.org is a site put together by the American Academy of Family Practice. I will admit that I am a member of this organization, and I do think it is a great site dedicated to giving people the best possible information online to help them make educated decisions on their health care needs. This is one of the first sites I recommend to people when they want to find information about their health.

K&L Wines

K&L Wines

I have never ordered off of their internet site as they are a local store, but I can tell you that they offer some of the best prices and widest selections of wines I have ever seen. I highly recommend this store.

Medscape

Medscape

10/27/09

Medscape is a resource for healthcare professionals but is also often used by consumers as well. It was sold to WebMD in Dec 2001. Medscape was founded to help physicians sort through the vast amount of healthcare information to improve patient care. They do a great job of sorting through the articles and data and bringing relevant information to the public. I am writing this review as part of my H1N1 guide and one of the best places I found that compares the LAIV (nasal vaccine) vs the injectable vaccine was on medscape. I will give you the link below so you can read it, but the catch is medscape requires you to register first with your email before you can access their content

Immunization Action Coalition

Immunization Action Coalition

Immunize.org is a resource of vaccine information for healthcare professionals. It covers everything from H1N1 vaccines to chickenpox. It is a valuable tool for healthcare providers or consumers with advanced healthcare knowledge to research topics such as " should pregnant women get H1N1". What I really like about this site are the videos. They have an extensive collection of videos on all sorts of vaccine topics.

Relenza

Relenza

10/27/09

Relenza (zanamivir) in an inhalation powder that is effective in both treating and possibly preventing the flu virus. Just like with Tamiflu, it can only be prescribed by a physician and you have to take it early on in the course of the disease for it to be effective. I would recommend reading through both of the websites of relenza and tamiflu to familiarize yourself with the possible treatments of the flu virus and then discussing them with your physician should you or a family member get the flu.

One of the main differences of Relenza is the delivery method and I would encourage readers to watch these videos.

Tamiflu

Tamiflu

10/27/09

Tamiflu (oseltamivir phosphate) is one of the anti-viral medications that has been around for awhile. It has gained more public awareness since the outbreak of the swine flu. Tamiflu is used both to prevent and treat flu viruses. What some people do not realize is that if they have a family member that has been diagnosed with the flu, it is possible to take Tamiflu and possibly prevent yourself from getting sick. Read through this website if you think you have the flu or someone close to you has the flu. Remember only a physician can prescribe Tamiflu and you need to take it very early on in the course of the illness for it to be effective.

Often times people want to find information online to determine whether or not they really have a flu virus. The main issue is determining whether or not it is appropriate to make an appointment with your physician. This website has a very good self evaluation program where you answer health questions and the site directs you to seek further evaluation, seek immediate treatment, etc... If you are unsure whether or not to see a doctor and you are looking for information online about the flu virus, this is very good self assessment tool.

VAERS is the Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System and is a very important part of evaluating new vaccines. In particular the new H1N1 vaccine. Many people do not report to their physician all of the adverse effects of a vaccine, and many doctors are not staffed properly to report all adverse effects. If you get the H1N1 vaccine or any vaccine and you experience an adverse effect, it is important to go to this website and report it. It does not take very long and you would be doing your part in helping to both develop effective vaccines and stop the spread of disease.
