Dr. James Burns
37 years experience male
I am currently the Medical Director of Peninsula Regional Advanced Wound and Hyperbaric Center. I am also residency trained and board certified in Emergency Medicine and spent 10 years as a staff physician in the ED before leaving to develop a very busy Urgent care Center. Prior to medical school I was trained and worked as a paramedic in suburban Kansas City. I have also functioned as a Medical Review Officer for numerous companies reviewing forensic drug screening, train Breath Alcohol Technicians, and was a Senior FAA aviation Medical Examiner and active skydiver. In addition to those areas, I also have a major interest in neuro-linguistic training, guided imagery, and hypnosis.

The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 72-year-old male asked:
Symptoms?: or just lab findings without symptoms. Can't say I would chase those numbers around at your age without some type of symptom. Hope that is helpful.
A 37-year-old male asked:
Depends somewhat: exactly which joint is affected, your age, work/injury history, prior history of unilateral joint pain or personal/ family history of inflammatory arthritis. At your age my guess is either a recent/ remote trauma, repetitive injury at work, or and inflammatory arthritis in that order. See below: also recommend your doctor be involved in this discussion.
A 35-year-old female asked:
