“If you shoot tiny pingpongs down airways to obstruct the lungs, you can imagine the potential consequences,” said Dr. Robert Lowe. #cpap #fraud #medicine
Dear Dr. Freemo: My PCP is highly ethical, my PCP will not look up my previous medical doctors without my written permission. My PCP sits down with each patient and each patient fills out a confidential questionnaire. My doctor tells each patient that he follows: "The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law that required the creation of national standards to protect sensitive patient health information from being disclosed without the patient's consent or knowledge."
My PCP says that all medical professionals must adhere to and follow HIPAA, my PCP says that HIPPAA legislation only reinforces what physicians are ethically supposed to do in the first place; safeguard and protect a patient's private confidential medical data and information from all outside third party or third parties. I have a really nice PCP who when in doubt suggests that each patient seek second or third medical opinions prior to conducting and performing advanced medical procedures.
My PCP likes to remain unbiased during medical diagnostic examinations, my PCP does not initially ask about the patient's medical history before the medical examination. My PCP only utilizes first hand medical diagnostic test procedures to arrive at a preliminary diagnosis, then my PCP will conduct and perform the second half of the medical questionnaire concerning asking about previous clinically diagnosed medical conditions. My PCP says: "I like to take a fresh look for myself, not rely upon other physicians previously obtained medical diagnoses."
So Dr. Freemo, my PCP would probably agree with you.
Sincerely, Monica Andrews, Editor-in-chief, #FreePeoplesFreePress News
There is literally only a **single** state in the USA where you still control autonomy over your own medical records (prescription drug list) and that is MO!
That means if you are in any other state and ever had a prescription doctors can find out what it was and who prescribed it. That means doctors can find your past doctors without your approval.
The scary part? You also have no control over your medical records. So your PCP can now legally look this up and contact all your past doctors for medical records and you cant do anything about it, you cant legally stop them, you cant purge your records, you cant purge your prescription list.
This is very scary for anyone who has been abused at the hand of a past doctor and moves.. If they have put any negative information about you that might make future doctors hostile towards you or not want you as a patient... there is nothing you can do... that is so scary...
Treating #depression with medication can be very effective, but not without pitfalls and side effects. Popular forms of #meditation can also be effective, though the evidence is far more limited. For many of us, a multi-modality approach is the answer, writes this physician who leans on both approaches for his own depression.
Article: New research implicates deactivated X chromosome in autoimmune diseases, helping explain why such illnesses are more common in women than in men. (Of interest to me because I have Hachimoto's disease--my immune system attacks my thyroid, leading to hypothyroidism.)
Content warning: Sexual assault
"Columbia University — where Robert Hadden spent his entire medical career — has never fully accounted for its role in allowing a predator to operate unchecked for decades. To date, more than 245 patients have alleged that Hadden abused them, which by itself could make him one of the most prolific sexual assailants in New York history. But the total number of victims may be far higher."
New Vaccine Can Completely Reverse Autoimmune Diseases Like Multiple Sclerosis, Type 1 Diabetes, and Crohn’s Disease
'Researchers at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME) have developed a novel vaccine that, in laboratory tests, can completely reverse autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, and Crohn’s disease — all without shutting down the rest of the immune system'
