Here’s a great reason to remember to turn your clocks back and sleep in an extra hour this weekend: it may be good for your heart.

More than 1.5 billion people reset their clocks every year, turning clocks backward by an hour in the fall and forward by an hour in the spring. These transitions can disrupt internal biologic rhythms and influence the duration and quality of sleep. But does losing or gaining that one hour have health consequences? A 2008 report in the New England Journal of Medicine by Dr. Janszky and colleagues suggests that it does. The authors showed that there is a significant increase in the daily rate of heart attack in the first few days after we “spring ahead” and get an hour less of sleep, but that in the first few days after we “fall back” and gain an hour of sleep, there are fewer heart attacks.

Sleep deprivation carries a high risk. Sleeping less than 5...

I was asked to fill out ~35 medical questionnaire prior to the visit. I was emailed and called to ensure I did it. I was told that they wouldn't see me if I didn't fill it out. However the doctor asked me many of the SAME questions. It was as if he never saw my info. He didn't seemed to have prepared at all.

As far as follow up goes. I sent an email to the doctor the day after my appt and have still not heard back.

Both the doctor and nurse were excellent, the doctor was clear and listened.

I am new to the area/state & was relieved to find such a competent, comfortable dr.

I am very pleased with my provider

Awesome Doctor. He went above and beyond what a lot of doctors do. It was obvious he really cared about my well being.

Have had trouble w/assistants in the past - (non-responsive, failed to handle prescriptions/paper work in timely manner) it thank her name was [...]. New assistants have been MUCH BETTER.

[...] the doctor was great. I had no additional questions after my visit.

he really needs to respond to my Chart questions.

I would never recommend this clinic to anyone because of the awful wait times to get an appointment. I'm barely hanging on as a patient myself.

dr explained everything very well. He listened and made sure that i understood great experince!

people are great and very nice. However, the process for getting a single diagnosis is horrible and could easily be streamlined.
