Three Ways to Get Healthy, Attractive Skin

    What is a chemical peel

    Did you know that more than 10 million surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic treatments were performed in the United States in 2012? This is because cosmetic procedures are designed to improve the appearance of certain areas of the body, such as the skin. In fact, there are several cosmetic skin treatments available, and each one is beneficial in its own way.

    1. Juvederm. Juvederm is an injectable filler that is designed to reduce facial wrinkles. This filler was approved by the FDA in 2006 because it contains hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally produced by the body to strengthen muscles and tendons. Since Juvederm can help soften deep folds, it is an effective way to improve the appearance of skin.

    2. Botox. Continue Reading

    What Can Acupuncture Do For You?

    Benefits of acupuncture

    These days, many people are looking to alternative health practices to supplement the Western medicine they already rely on. One such practice is acupuncture, which is rooted in ancient Chinese medicine. Acupuncture has become very popular in recent times, 6.5% of Americans attest to having undergone acupuncture treatments, and of those, 22% visited an acupuncturist during the past year. In the U.S., acupuncture has been practiced for approximately two centuries, though it has been used in China to treat a myriad ailments for millennia. Approval of the acupuncture needle as a medical device was granted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1996, and since then the practice has taken off considerably. But what is acupuncture exactly? Continue Reading

    Urgent Care Centers How They Can Make Your Community Healthier

    Walk in clinic denver

    Over the last few years, the number of urgent care facilities has risen dramatically in order to support the overused infrastructure of the Emergency Room system.

    Now I am sure that many readers already know how overcrowded and expensive emergency rooms can be. Two years ago I broke my arm while riding my skateboard to work and it took eight hours for a doctor to see me. Because emergency rooms have so many individuals seeking care, and so few professionals available to see them,the waits are painfully long. On the contrary, urgent care services can be a much better option for patients. A little over half of all patients who visit urgent care facilities wait only fifteen minutes and more than three quarters are seen by a physician in under an hour. Beyond the speed of urgent care, the price is also dra Continue Reading

    Understanding Clinical Depression

    What is tms

    Major depression has become more and more prevalent in recent years. Although the phrase has been thrown around a great deal, many people still have misguided notions about what depression actually is; what are the causes of depression and what are the symptoms of depression are questions to which the average lay person does not know the answers. As well, because depression is so common, many concerned friends and family members of individuals who seem down or blue wonder about whether their loved ones are exhibiting any of the top signs of depression, and if so, whether treatment for depression could be helpful.

    The most important thing to understand about depression is that it is neither a choice nor an emotion. Depression is a clinical ill Continue Reading

    Why is going to the ER about to get even more expensive? According to ER doctors, too many Americans are abusing emergency departments and emergency care, and hospitals are no longer going to stand for it.

Who will have to pay these news fees, and are there alternatives for patients who do not want to pay them?

    Who Will Pay For Immediate Care, and Why?

    Doctors may charge upfront fees starting at $150 to all routine patients in the emergency room. What constitutes a routine patient? First of all, the charges will not apply to pregnant women, children under 6, and seniors. All other patients who have relatively routine symptoms, such as c Continue Reading

    Cabell Huntington Hospital sued over cleaning of wound
    Clyde Mitchell Copley went to Huntington Hospital for cleaning his wound but he he was not treated well.  He said to the Cabell Circuit Court while filing his complaint that a physician of Huntington Hospital was not professionally a doctor. He failed to clean his wound which resulted in a big infection and foot surgery.

    Copley said in his press briefing that “I was shifted to Three Rivers Medical Center in Louisa, Ky. Where doctors evaluated my wound and said to me that they would transport me to Cabell due to lack of orthopedist availability”. He further said that he had reached the hospital at around 10:21 p.m. on Dec. 9, 2011 and his orthopedic consultation took place 1 a.m. on Dec. 10, 2011.

    It is mentioned in the suit that the physician had noted that his wound was clear however the hospital authorities discharged him in one hour. He claims that after the passage of 3 days, the condition of his wound was brutal and there was swelling on his left ankle. Later on, the litigator was admitted he underwent foot wound and left ankle incision.

    Furthermore, it is mentioned in the suit that Copley was visiting the Three Rivers Medical Center for many months to heal his wound and he was not properly cured by the physician of Huntington Hospital. He claims that the physician did not remove the grass of his wound which caused the foot infection however he had to undergo foot surgery.

    Last but not the least he is being represented by Michael C. Walker of Cyrus & Adkins and the case is being heard by Circuit Judge David M. Pancake. Copley has filed his suit for compensatory damages and looking for his pre and post judgment interests.
