About

Bio

I believe that the best doctors don't know everything, but they know where to look it up. And the answer often starts with Google, but leads down a path that branches into treatment, history, biochemistry, infection, immunology, physics and yes, students, math. So a lifelong interest in *everything* is a great attribute to being a great doctor. Would that we had enough time to learn about everything!

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Gilbert syndrome people are pretty healthy except for some discoloration from excess bilirubin. Rh negative blood will be an issue when pregnancy is contemplated and the other levels are unremarkable in a growing adolescent. In general. lab tests are done for maintenance, to see if some body system is deteriorating, or to help diagnose symptoms suggestive of a disease. Best wishes

Most psychiatric syndromes are being attributed to genetic mutations as opposed to being unexplained. You will wish to talk this over with the provider who is managing your severe psychiatric symptoms. Here's a website on side effects of the combination vaccine. https://www.webmd.com/vaccines/tdap-vaccine-for-adults

I hope you will feel better on the prescribed medications. People often prescribe tummy protecting medications when NSAIDs are given. The NSAID celecoxib is a little different in that it was engineered to have fewer gastrointestinal side effects. Take the medication as directed, be sure your doctor knows all the medications you're on, and report back to your doctor with any new symptoms.
