Hello Everyone, this is my profile in progress. I will be adding to it and revising it over the next few days and possibly weeks. I did want to put at least a paragraph in my profile to let folks know where I stand in politics and sometimes more specifically my views in healthcare. Truth be told, I never fashioned myself as a political activist. Most of my life now for the last 30 years, I have been a man of science and trusted the word of the constitution and the three branches of government would continue to prevail against devious plots to undermine our great republic treasured values. However, in the last few months, I feel I can no longer in good conscious stand idly by as both internal and external destructive forces continue to erode the bedrock of our beloved republic. Sometimes these attacks are very direct such as with mandatory state vaccine laws and gun laws. Still other times they are very insidious such as the attempts to destroy the nuclear family by promoting ridiculous gender banter and extreme feminism to the point of man hating. Most recently in the last year, there has been a concerted coordinated well-funded effort to not only oppress and distort but to shut down and eliminate all forms of conservative speech that promotes our core values not only as United State citizens but as human beings. <br> <br>As far as medicine, I do not practice medicine although I do have a Doctor of Medicine degree and have consulted in the use and development of clinical computing across the United States in many hospitals. Before becoming a physician, I was a Basic Input Output System (BIOS) Engineer and computer programmer for 20 years. A natural fit for me after medical school was to move to the field of clinical informatics, epidemiology, and the computer programming of clinical systems. My personal healthcare philosophy is based on the need and inevitability of both a National Healthcare System designed to coexist with Private Healthcare. I believe only through true collaboration with all healthcare modalities will the practice of medicine reach the full disease prevention and healing potential of human beings across the dimensions of mind, body and spirit.
