Dr. Alex Fridman Jr, MD
I am a 3rd generation doctor with a fluent command of Russian and working command of Spanish. My wife believes that I went into medicine for the right reasons, and that's why my family still rents 2 bedroom apartment. Here's my message to you: As a patient, you need to know about your medical care to make sure you get the best care without unnecessary re-testing or ineffective treatments that have been tried before. Please expect to learn what I ask you. This will invariably involve your medical conditions, medications, tests. Remember that your medical history is confidential between you and your doctor. This means that medical specialist or a hospital that is treating you for the first time know nothing about you, unless you authorize your information to be released to them. Better yet to bring your most recent lab work from your ordering doctor to a new doctor. Know your medications inluding generic name, dose, frequency and why you are taking it. Create a wallet size list of your medications, and preferrably your medical conditions. If you don't have pharmacy's printout on the common side effects of your medication, you can access via internet and I recommend to use this site: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus. This is a government website that does not have financial bias in providing patient information regarding medical conditions, procedures, and medications. The information is also available in Spanish, and some other languages. You can also use this website to research vitamins, supplements, and herbals. Unfortunately in the United States, there is no regulation on the claims made by manufacturers of these products; neither there are strict regulation on the purity of the ingredients of vitamins, herbs and supplements. Thus you take the vitamins manufactured in U.S. at your own risk. There is much better oversight of these products in Europe, but they are not easily obtained. It's tough journey to be a patient, but I will guide you along the way and hopefully will help you obtain the results that you want. Thanks, Dr. Fridman. Un mensaje a pacientes del Dr. Fridman: Como paciente, usted necesita saber acerca de su atención médica para asegurarse de obtener la mejor atención sin re-prueba o ineficaces tratamientos innecesarios que se han probado antes. Por favor espero que aprendas lo que te pido. Esto siempre involucrar a sus condiciones médicas, medicamentos, y pruebas. Recuerde que su historial médico es confidencial entre usted y su médico. Esto significa que el médico especialista o un hospital que lo está tratando por primera vez no saben nada acerca de usted, a menos que usted autoriza a que su información sea divulgada a ellos. Aún mejor traer sus laboratorios más reciente de su médico de pedidos a un nuevo médico. Conozca sus medicamentos incluyendo nombre genérico, dosis, frecuencia y por qué lo está tomando. Crear una lista de tamaños de la cartera de sus medicamentos, y preferiblemente sus condiciones médicas. Si usted no tiene la impresión de farmacia sobre los efectos secundarios comunes de los medicamentos, se puede acceder a través de Internet y lo recomiendo para utilizar a este citio: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus. Se trata de un sitio web del gobierno que no tiene sesgo financiera en la provisión de información de los pacientes en relación con condiciones médicas, procedimientos y medicamentos. La información también está disponible en español y otros idiomas. También puede utilizar este sitio web para investigar las vitaminas, los suplementos y hierbas. Por desgracia, en los Estados Unidos, no existe una regulación sobre las afirmaciones hechas por los fabricantes de estos productos; no hay una regulación estricta de la pureza de los ingredientes de vitaminas, hierbas y suplementos. Por lo tanto se toman las vitaminas fabricadas en los Estados Unidos a su propio riesgo. Hay mucha mejor supervisión de estos productos en Europa, pero no se obtienen fácilmente. Por favor, revise su cobertura de seguro para el quiropráctico, acupuntura servicios antes de solicitar por ellos. Por cualquier duda en cuanto a sincronización de remisiones a radiología, especialistas y otras pruebas, póngase en contacto con nuestro Departamento de referencia. Si son hospitalizados o visite el Departamento de emergencia o otra clínica, por favor solicite su historial médico (incluyendo laboratorios, estudios y reporte del médico de la proyección de imagen) antes de salir de esa facilidad. Sería muy útil, cuando siga aquí. Si usted es diabético, es necesario tener un examen de la vista y la vacuna contra la gripe cada año, así como vacuna contra la neumonía. Aun que no es necesario hacer el examen anual de laboratorios, es todavía una buena idea consultar a un médico una vez al año. Para la anticoncepción, recomiendo DIU y el implante hormonal, ya que otros métodos son más propensos a fallar. Por ejemplo, mediante el uso de condones ?y anticonceptivos orales, hay provavilidad de fracaso del 9% en un año.
