Have seen some local Drs' ads claiming board cert by Am Bd of Cosmetic Surg. Sounds hokey. Thought Amer Bd of Plastic Surg only one recognized by ABMS?

Bd of cosmetic surge: The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery does not require one to be a board certified plastic surgeon, so that any board certified surgeon can take a course and become certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.

Internet: You should be able to find someone by looking on the company website physician locator. Most companies have that. More importantly you need to understand the the outcome of your surgery depends more on your surgeon. No study has shown any difference in the results between different knee replacements. It is ok to look for a certain product but do not get hung up on it but find the right surgeon. ...Read more

In your opinion, which specialty has the smartest docs? The nicest? The least nice? My vote: smartest = pathology; nicest = pediatrics; least nice = it's a tie: endocrinology and vascular surgery.

In your opinion, which specialty has the smartest docs? The nicest? The least nice? My vote: smartest = pathology; nicest = pediatrics; least nice = it's a tie: endocrinology and vascular surgery.

Value judgments: Being human, physicians have varying personalities ("niceness") and all have intelligence or they wouldn't be in medicine. People have value judgments, though. For instance, many physicians told me i was "too smart" to go into psychiatry. Should we make similar judgments about 43 year old men from athens ga -- saying they're not as nice or as smart as women from atlanta? I think not. :-). ...Read more

I am looking for a neurologist in Tennessee. I have been to Vanderbilt/Howell Allen Clinic/Mid state neurosurgery. Schwannoma in entirety of S1 root.

I see your 3rd post: I referred your post to an HT neurologist, but your case needs a team of folks looking at your scans and planning a course of treatment.

How good is blue star ointment for fungus?

How good is blue star ointment for fungus?

Blue Star is: Camphor and lard. I don't see how either of those things would get rid of a fungus. If you know you have a fungus, use an otc anti-fungal product like lotrimin, Lamisil or tinactin (tolnaftate) 2x / day for at least 30 days. Your fungus will clear up in 3-5 days, but since fungal spores live 30 days, you need to use it that long or it'll recur. ...Read more
