When she finally becomes a teenager...

I know it is still a long way to go before Bela becomes a teenager. But when she starts complaining about pimples and acne, as what every teenager worries about, I will really remind her that she should be careful with her choices for acne treatment.

I was just browsing the net when I read about Accutane and how it is being linked to serious illnesses like Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and ulcerative colitis which can result in cramping, pain, diarrhea, bleeding, and frequent bowel movements. Imagine, those who have tried this medicine only wants solution for an acne free skin and all they will get in the end are these serious symptoms.

I guess it is normal for moms to worry for the welfare of their kids. But thankfully, there are applications such as Doximity that can help me have peace of mind.

So what is Doximity? Doximity is an application that physicians use to communicate with each other, share information, ask advise, consult each other, check physician’s profile like the profile of Gregory Hester MD, send each other files faster, and more. Because of this application, doctors who are member of this private network will have easy way to communicate with each other so they can help each other perform their job well.

Doximity will indeed lessen the chance for doctors to commit medical mistake, and as a parent that is one thing that can help us be at peace with the welfare of our kids.
