Recent passings of family, namely my Father and Older brother only one month apart initiated a reflection on life and the important matters.

In health care it is a challenge at times to understand people’s values.

The largest aspect is time.  There are only so many seconds in a minute and yet the time just seems to fly.

Many patients comment they were just in the office, and find out it has been 3 to 4 years.

This is one reason my office staff call to remind you it is over one year since your last visit, or send you a reminder letter.

Recent events with some emergency patients, it would have been better to have the matter looked at on the day the incident occured, not 4 to 5 days after.  This leads to longer periods of time for resolution of the disease or vision situation.

And some times it can even save your life.
