Ladies, the absolute baseline standard for your healthcare should be treatment by a physician who specializes in comprehensive women’s primary care. Unfortunately, many primary care providers are not trained in complex women’s health needs, and women are not getting the care they deserve. As a Ms.Medicine provider, I am proud to be part of the only network of specialty-trained women’s health experts who are raising the standard of care for women.

What if there was a medicine that could protect you from diseases, keep you healthy, and could eradicate deaths caused by illness? Oh, wait. There is. It’s called IMMUNIZATIONS. Vaccines are important. That is why we’re celebrating National Immunization Awareness Month this August! If you’re on the fence about immunizations consider these facts: 1. Vaccines do not cause the disease they are designed to prevent. 2. Vaccines reduce and eliminate diseases. Vaccines protect from diseases like Polio, Rubella, Hepatitis A & B, Hib, Measles, Mumps, Chickenpox, etc. 3. Vaccines save lives and protect future generations. For example, polio was once one of the most feared diseases in the U.S. In the early 1950s, polio outbreaks caused more than 15,000 cases of paralysis each year. Now with the poliovirus vaccine (IPV), the disease has been eliminated in America. 4. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, 50,000 adults died from vaccine-preventable diseases each year. 5. Vaccines do not cause autism. Extensive studies have shown this to be true. (Read on here https://academic.oup.com/cid/article/48/4/456/284219?login=true) Immunizations are as necessary as a healthy diet and exercise, and we’d love to help answer any questions you have. Feel free to comment below or reach out privately in messages!

Evidence-based medicine • better outcomes – isn’t that what we’re looking for in healthcare? What does “evidence-based” actually mean? It is a context by which a clinician can determine the most effective course of treatment for each patient. It combines: 1️⃣ The best research-based evidence available for their patient’s medical concerns 2️⃣ The patient’s values and preferences surrounding their care 3️⃣ The clinician’s own expertise and experience Generally… Where there is evidence a treatment works, it is used Where there is evidence a treatment does NOT benefit the patient, is NOT used Healthcare providers have created specific, evidence-based care management programs for many diseases. Where there is not enough evidence, a consensus is developed among healthcare providers on a careful course of action. With so much information related to health and wellness online & in the media, it is not uncommon for patients to wonder if they might benefit from a treatment or product they see posted. Plus, some patients researching their own symptoms or listening to family or friends’ opinions might feel overwhelmed by the amount of data available. Evidence-based medicine presents a real, systematic course forward that has been found to improve a patient’s overall care. Studies have found it has led to measurable improvements, plus it offers the following benefits: + a systematic approach + shared decision-making + better outcomes Curious about how evidence-based care plays out in the real world? We’d love to help. DM or comment with your questions below. #youdeservebetter #msmedicine #conciergemedicine #horshampa #horsham #pa
