Four weeks to lift-off!


Four weeks from today Oodle Family Medicine will officially open its doors!

Four weeks from today I will have the chance to practice affordable and compassionate family medicine like I imagined I would.

The office space is coming together. I've nearly all my supplies, most of my vendor contracts, and enough patients to nearly make my overhead.

Tonight I went to a Christmas party for my workspace and networked with some other business owners in the building: massage therapists, chiropractor, health insurance broker, real estate agent, robotics engineer, travel agent, etc. Being part of the Creative Workspace is like having your own business association. I'd love to find out what other businesses are in the building!

Next steps - getting the wi-fi set up, testing out and setting up my new printer, getting my sink installed, and figuring out waste, sharps and shredding disposal.

Dr. Eaman's Web Search Tips

#1 

Chose websites that end in .gov or .edu first and .org second (MayoClinic.org is a good one). Websites like mine that end in .com are generally just purchased webspace, but an educational organization or governmental organization would likely have more trustworthy & honest information and not just some random person's opinion.

#2

Don't trust news sources for your health information. Check their sources. Oftentimes the media will blow a small irrelevant thing out of proportion to make a good story sell. Go to the original site.

#3

Feel free to crowd source but always remember: everyone is an expert in their own experience, not yours. So when Aunt Tilly says coconut oil cured her psoriasis take it with a little grain of salt.
