6 Arrested In San Diego As Part Of FBI Nationwide Sex Trafficking Crackdown

I agree that such an article that's posted is way too superficial and doesn't justify using the words "forced into prostitution" "sex trafficking". It's too sensationalist to just post something like this. Do a more in depth article, interview a family member of a victim and post a story so we as citizens can know how a victim was targeted, why they weren't found, what authorities were doing to find the presumably missing person etc.
Don't get me wrong, I'm 100% supportive of our law enforcement but let's not forget they don't decide who to arrest and arresting someone isn't the same thing as trying them and assigning guilt. And for any victim of any crime especially sex trafficking my heart goes out to them. But I'm talking about this article, which creates nothing more than a hype without substantiating what's printed.

Average Wait For VA San Diego New Patient Care Is 44 Days

obviously there is a lack of shortage of primary care physicians state wide. It certainly will affect the VA as well. Many of us primary care docs would love to volunteer our time to help out especially an organization like the VA. However, in order to do that laws would need to be passed that prevent us from being sued. Volunteering as a doctor is a very noble and selfless endeavor but doctors aren't going to put themselves at higher risks than they already are. Though I know this is not the best solution in the world I believe that we owe it to our veterans to step up and help. Hopefully the VA system can recover from their mistakes and shorten access time in the meanwhile.

Kaiser Embraces Telemedicine To Improve Access To Dermatology

I'm a family medicine doctor at Kaiser and I truly love this service for our patients. Some rashes are straight forward, some we just don't see enough of in the clinic. Being able to transmit these images to the dermatologists that we normally refer patients to has been an amazing service to our patients. My patients don't have to pay an extra copay, make an extra appointment or lose time out of their day. The cameras are really easy to work with and create very detailed images.

Uninsured Patients Get Obamacare Pitch At California ER

It's a disservice to the readers to not mention EMTALA which is the main reason emergency rooms are inundated with patients that don't require emergency services. This often leads to long wait times for patients that truly require higher level of care and unfortunately only provided interrupted care to those that would benefit more from outpatient care.
Briefly EMTALA is a law that prevents ERs from turning patients away. So patients cannot get screened and be told that their symptoms aren't serious enough to warrant emergency care. Often patients are treated unnecessarily with antibiotics and given meds they may not need because the ER physicians don't have the luxury of following up their patients as easily as the outpatients clinics do.

Bill Giving California Pharmacists More Duties Goes To Governor

I think it's a great time to start really utilizing our pharmacists who are highly educated in their field to actually provide higher level of care. However, in my experience a lot of pharmacists are comfortable continuing in their role and many have poor knowledge of actual medication. It has been a rare experience for me to speak to a pharmacist regarding medication choice and get helpful information. I do believe that these are skills that pharmacists learn in pharmacy school but perhaps unlearn it because of lack of use. If pharmacy schools and jobs demand this skill set then I think pharmacists will be an even more invaluable part of the health care system.

Careers For Mid-City Youth Sprout From Unlikely Place

One of the kids mentioned was in foster care, that can't be easy. I think the article is probably focusing on the work opportunity for those with negative records, I'm sure the article wouldn't be that interesting if it was just about more job opportunities. I don't think this rewarding negative behavior, if I myself didn't get second chances I wouldn't be where I am at.

The Beginning Of The End For U.S. Chimp Research

Great job! It took a while but I always will applaud progress. I think advancement of medicine through the torture of other creatures is unacceptable. Not to mention that we are scientifically advanced enough that we no longer need ANY animal research in order to determine the safety of medications.

Stem Cell Research In San Diego Uses Patient's Own Cells

Even as a physician I still don't feel right about testing on animals.

Advocates Struggle To Reach Growing Ranks Of Suburban Poor

The two examples of people used to represent those in poverty were both on disability. In order for the rest of us to understand the plight of the suburban poor we certainly would need more compelling stories and not stories of those on disability and those who worked and put no money aside.
