If we end up in gridlock while discussing single payer, the Affordable Care Act remains in place. Surely Secretary Clinton knows this. Surely anyone who has even the slightest clue about how laws work in this country knows this. Yet she seems to be telling voters something different.
I was hugely dismayed to walk into a local doctor's office recently and see the following sign: Please be advised that your waiting time could be extensive. If you are unable to continue your wait, please let the receptionist know and she will reschedule your appointment.
Kenneth Thorpe, an Emory University professor who served in the Clinton administration, claims Sanders's single-payer plan would break the bank. But his analysis rests on several incorrect, and occasionally outlandish, assumptions.
I think there are many things you could call me. You could call me stubborn. You could call me opinionated. You could even call me anxious -- when I am anxious. Just don't let that be the benchmark for my health care, or a convenient thing to write when you can't find anything else wrong, or are so intent on not listening to me that you can't hear me.
After reading the criteria and the symptoms, if you believe you may have ADHD you should speak with your primary care doctor or establish an evaluation with a psychiatrist.

I have a pet peeve. It's bigger than a peeve, actually. If I am right about what I am about to say, then I have both Confucius and the plain-speaki...
But more importantly, Unity will provide what emergency rooms cannot: a collaborative, non-coercive, decriminalized model of care. Open 24/7, the center will offer crisis stabilization, medication, crisis counseling, family support, peer support, and a team of qualified social workers and transition-of-care staff to ensure that long-term solutions are made accessible.
The collagen meniscus implant (CMI) is back on the US market, and it has the potential to change the way knees are treated. Here is why.

If we care about our health, we must address physician health. This can only happen with a shift in the culture of care and wellness of doctors. Self-care must become a core competency in medical training. Such radical change requires the involvement of all stakeholders, the doctors, the health policy makers and most importantly, the public.
It's no secret that Americans disagree on their views about universal healthcare. Yet the divisiveness isn't about a lack of empathy for our fellow man. It's about a lack of clarity.
