DM me if interested.
  5. Hi there! I'm a PA student looking to buy lightly used Ophthalmoscope & Otoscope for school. Anyone selling their old set?
  6. Has anyone gone from working in the ED to an urgent care position? I would love to hear about anyone's experience with that or other perspectives. Why'd you make the switch? Slower pace? Better hours? Do you get bored? Just curious. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. So I recently saw a new device that Welch Allyn created where you can use a camera attached to your otoscope to look into the ear canal, take pictures and save for your record or show to your patient. I love the idea of being able to actually show the patient what you are seeing, but the attachment costs close to $1000, which does not seem financially plausible since you can't charge extra for a more detailed ear exam. I have seen devices online that look like mini endoscopes for the ear as well as videos of the big devices ENTs use to clean out compacted wax. TL;DR looking for people who use endoscopes for ear exams in their practice and what are your thoughts. Is a good benefit? Do you have the ability to clean the ear out well? What device do you use? Thanks!
  8. My school is having us get equipment for our physical diagnosis classes coming up (and rotations later on) and I need some insight into what the best option is. We have to choose from a few different packages instead of buying stuff separately. Pack 1 has a 3.5V diagnostic otoscope and a 3.5V standard ophthalmoscope. Pack 2 has a 3.5V diagnostic set with a coaxial ophthalmoscope and a macroview otoscope. There is a huge price differential and they seem to be telling us that if we are unsure we should get the 2nd, more expensive option. I have obviously never used an otoscope or ophthalmoscope before, but I have heard that the first option is entirely sufficient. Can anyone who has experience with any of these give me some insight into the differences and which are preferred/sufficient?
  9. I'm looking for a lightly used diagnostic set (oto/ophthalmoscope) for PA school. The school I'm attending said they are not doing a group order this year, therefore, I need to buy my own early. I'm interested in different brands/models etc. Reply to this thread or send me a message if you have any!
  10. Used briefly during my MPA training. The set is 95% like new, with maybe 2-3 disposable ear specula missing. You can see detailed photos here: http://imgur.com/a/qSe4V PM me if you are interested.
  11. Like new Welch Allyn panoptic diagnostic set just finished with in PA school. Excellent, lightly used, bought new from rep on campus for $895. Offering $725. More expensive b/c of the Lithium Ion handle (not the nickel - which is, frankly, much harder to use). Will ship ASAP. Send private message. 97800-MS Welch Allyn PanOptic Ophthalmoscope with 3 spot sizes: micro, small and large; split aperture, red-free and cobalt blue filters; with add-on magnifying lens MacroView otoscope with Throat Illuminator (#23820) 3.5 V Lithium Ion Rechargeable Handle -Lithium-Ion (#71960) Battery and compact Wall Charger. Set of 4 permanent (non-disposable) otoscope tips. These were never used as I always had the disposable ones from clinic. Hard Storage Case.
  12. Hi i'm in a horrible situation right now and would like some advice before I go forward. I have 3 C's in general biology 1, general biology 2, and chemistry 1. I took these 3 courses during my first few semesters when I was taking general science courses and had no planned major to motivate me. I obviously was not prepared for these classes and did poorly in them. Eventually I figured out what my major was (physician assistant) and started doing MUCH better in school. The past 2 years i've had straight A's in hard classes such as anatomy and physiology, microbiology, genetics, medical terminology, biochemistry 1&2, and more... and I currently have an A in general chemistry 2. All the PA programs in my state (except for an expensive private school) require all my prerequisites to be a B or higher. The school I was planning to go to used to require 3.0 OVERALL in science but they recently changed it to B or higher in every prerequisite. So these 3 classes have come back to haunt me! I talked to the admissions office as well as an advisor (who also talked to the person in charge of transcripts). All of them told me I cannot retake any courses that I got a C in. I'm pretty sure the other school I was planning to enroll to for my bachelors also told me they do not allow students to retake C courses when I spoke to a counselor last year. So what can I do? Is this reality? If you got a C in one course your first semester you're automatically banned from becoming a physician assistant or going onto any other graduate program that requires a B or higher? I'm lost... edit: Yes i understand these 3 courses are major courses. I am a lot smarter now after taking several other courses though. If i were to retake those I guarantee I could get an A in all of them.
  13. Hi all - any advice on a good student othphalmo/otoscope? I need to buy my first before I start my didactic year in August. My program suggested spending at least $200, but didn't give much guidance beyond that. Any advice on a model that's not over-the-top but that's good enough to do the job? Thanks! Also - if anyone is selling a used o/oscope in good condition please PM me!
