Insurance companies want to pay as little as possible for your prescribed drugs and, often times, mandate, that the physician substitute what we order. This isn't always in your best interest.

Md writes that ultherapy treats the same foundation layer that facelift surgery does without the risk, recovery & downtime. True? New gold standard?
I'm sorry, not true!: I am not sure who wrote that but I am sure it is someone who owns and is paying the lease on an ultherapy machine. This is not a substitute for a facelift, most current facelift techniques treat the deeper layers of thef face called the smas. Ultherapy is unlikely to truly tighten the smas. It may supplement the results but is far different in results from a facelift. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers

What is the best way to fight an insurance co that denies approval for a rhizotomy recommended by 3 mds? Appeal letter sent; 2 peer:peer reviews done
Keep fighting: The only way to win is to persevere. This is a stare down competition the first person to look away loses. It sucks that it takes all this effort, but it took me and one of my patients almost 1.5 years to get procedure approved. We never waivered and obviously the treatment helped and was appropriate for care which inevitably helped. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Instruments that do not touch the patient are cleaned for functionality and are sterilized usually once per day. These are the rules for an ophthalmological office.

Pharmacists get their meds from a network of distributors, so sometimes counterfeit or lower-quality meds illegally enter the supply chain.
