bike mike Posted January 30, 2019 Share Posted January 30, 2019 So I recently had a patient come in who was recently diagnosed with a TIA. She has a h/o PAF and refuses AC other than low dose ASA. When I saw her I went over the risk of thromboembolic stroke with PAF without adequate anyicoagulation. That is when she told me that her naturopath who “used to be an MD” told her that her symptoms of facial droop and aphasia were due to “lack of oxygen in her blood because of a lack of protein” and that she didn’t have a TIA and that “no offense, you don’t know as much as her because she used to be an MD”. Yeah, I’m just a knuckle dragging PA.....what do I know? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
