What we’re all about.

Every few weeks we will post some new information that we hope will interest you. The most important aspect of your health care is your own involvement and knowledge. This idea is detailed more fully in the chapter “Patient-centered Care” in the Education menu. There is increasing scientific evidence that the more you know about your own health, the more you can take an active role in staying healthy. While this is common sense for most of us, it’s taken quite a while for the health care community to come on board. 

The days should be gone where the authoritarian doctor walks into the room, mumbles a few words, writes a prescription and leaves before answering questions. Unfortunately in our over-pressed system this still takes place. Even worse I hear stories of physicians standing in the doorway and never examining the patient. This makes a mockery of the patient-doctor relationship, and is unacceptable. 

If you read the information on the Promptdoc website you should be able to see a common theme. Information is readily available on an unlimited number of health topics if you know what questions to ask, where to look for answers and how to interpret the data. The internet is revolutionizing medicine. We will present interesting, perhaps not standardized information on topics that affect all of us. 

Please leave comments and requests for information in the contact section. Perhaps we can guide you where to look.

Remember however all this information is food for thought, not treatment advice. It is important to consult with your health care provider before you begin any physical training routine, make lifestyle changes or changes in your health care regimen.
