Sharing Urology Wisdom for Overall Health3 years ago
This idea of sharing is important. There’s so little transparency in medicine, mostly due to the stranglehold the insurance companies have on the industry. Thankfully patients are more savvy today — which I love. They’re more well read, and willing to challenge their physicians. I developed my urology telemedicine platform, VirtuCare, partly with this in mind. Circumventing the insurance companies to provide patients with the wisdom and compassion that empowers them to make better healthcare decisions.

Ethnicity Based Genetic Screening For G6PD Can Save Lives5 years ago
G6PD deficiency is a very common human enzyme genetic disorder. This condition is present in over 10% of African American males; 20% in Thai people and 20% in Indians. Yet most doctors do not routinely screen the disproportionately affected groups for this condition. Living with this deficiency may cause anemia and a host of other chronic and acute health problems like back pain, exhaustion, cardiac problems, diabetes and more. Doctors then treat these diseases sometimes with medications which create serious health problems for those like myself with this genetic condition. If this disease were detected earlier, these issues could be avoided.
