  1. Your best bet will probably be online. Search for legit, inexpensive degrees.
  2. Rev is soooooo correct! I've worked family med for 35 years and thought I'd seen it all until I started working PT UC for extra money! Most people are terrific, a few try to take advantage. Just stand your ground and do the right thing. PS: "I lost my meds" = call your PCP. Someone is on-call 24/7. I don't refill lost meds, especially controlled. Funny how hydrocodones are always the ones to get knocked into the garbage disposal "by mistake." It's never losartan!
  3. I'm just a regular guy. I don't often have the opportunity to be courageous or a hero. I am a country boy with a couple of science degrees practicing frontline family medicine. However, I was one of the first people in this world to be vaccinated last December, with a booster in January. I knew I needed to set a good example for my patients, my family, my friends. Many courageous health care workers were right beside me. I'm not stupid or naive. I know about mRNA technology. (I got the Pfizer vax.) I know how much it has been tested. Sure, I was a little nervous about it, but g
  4. Someone once told me that in order to be an orthopod you need to be as strong as a bull and almost as smart!
  5. This is natural selection at work. Smart people get the vaccine and flourish. The rest...not so much! Vax deniers are the modern-day neanderthals. We are medical scientists in this forum, so we should all know better. Denier excuses and conspiracy theorist posts to follow.
  6. Suing your former employer will label you. Good luck getting future jobs. It's not worth it. Vent to us here, we understand. Then move on...
  7. Welcome. I look forward to your input!
  8. Generally, I am a guy who supports individual freedom. However, this pandemic affects us all. If you don't want your covid vaccine, fine. But I don't want my activities restricted because of you. I want to be able to travel and go to restaurants and shows, etc. I want kids to go to school. I want small businesses to do well and our economy to improve. I want people to stop dying needlessly. I want normalcy back. The way to do that is herd immunity. If a "vaccine passport" helps us get there, so be it.
  9. HR is my second choice. Once you go down that path, she will truly always hate you. And she will tell others that you reported her. This gives her ammunition to make you look bad, especially the way she will tell the story behind you back. I agree with killing her with kindness publicly, while also confronting her privately. Professional to professional. If that doesn't work, you will always have the HR route to go, and will have a stronger case.
  10. Just read this today. The best thing any of us can do for our profession, our community, and our country is to help other people. Thanks for doing that.
  11. I've heard that chiros flunk it frequently.
  12. I've never seem those words together before! Just teasing! Good luck. This can be a demanding field. I wish you well. Please let us know how it goes.
  13. I've actually found it easier to meet my requirement. Slower than usual volumes = more free time for CME. Plenty of free CME online. Patient loads getting back to normal now, though.
  14. You are fooling yourself if you think this is a title issue. I have thought we needed a title change for over 30 years, but this has to do with privileges Real or perceived.
  15. My rule: You can't be both sick and well on the same day. Often times, patients want to combine a wellness visit with an acute illness. I don't like that. An illness during a "wellness" visit will give us an unclear assessment of your BP, temp, and overall health. I don't like to combine these visits. What do you do?
