What We Actually Have is Sick Care

I have to shake my head and chuckle a bit when I hear news about Congress discussing yet another health care bill. I don’t argue that this is a system in our country that needs desperate help. However, what we have in the U.S. is actually sick care, not health care. We learn to seek

Immune Boosters

We’ve seen a number of patients recently who are struggling with sinus issues or others who have to call to cancel and appointment because they are at home with a sick child.
