Family Webicine BLOG - Formerly "All Ears" Blog
Rod Moser, PA, PhD posted:
We have a name change! For the lack of a better one, we called my Blog the "All Ears", although it was clear that it was not just about was about "listening" and commenting. I had the privilege of commenting on must about everything that popped into my mind that I felt was interesting or medically relevant....or just plain funny.

Like Patch Adams, I use humor extensively in my clinical practice. If the patients want a more stern, serious medical provider, they can see someone else -- there are plenty of these old guys around. I like to have fun with my patients, and I like to make 'em smile and laugh. Life is much too short to be serious all of the time.

We needed a name change that better reflects the flavor of my Blog. I thought of a lot of them and submitted them to WebMD quite a while ago, so a decision has been call it Family Webicine.

Since family practice is the core and essence of medicine, I wholeheartedly endorse the name change, and hope that it will attract more readers.

This Blog does have a lot of readers, but only a few take the time to comment. I love those comments....even the one's that disagree with me. Feeback is important, as well as suggestion on topics to address.

Thank you for providing me a wonderful forum....a catharsis....for my random thoughts, comments, and ramblings. Keep reading them and tell your friends.

Rod Moser, PA, PhD replied to RicRatCat's response:
Thank you so much for your kind comments. I am still trying to get used to not seeing comments at the end of the Blog. WebMD is still in the process of tweaking the format, so I hope that it will improve.

Patch Rod, no thats a good one. I wish you were around here. I'm the same way at the drug store, making conversation with everyone and trying to get a smile and a laugh out of them. Life is too short to have a bad att. all day. We all get into moods and it only takes that one person to either help or hinder that. I just had blood taken for lab work(yr. phys) and i must have talked the the tech. a half hour before a new patient came. God i'm gabby, well she was worse than me. LOL

Keep up them blogs we enjoy reading them. I would write on my web md site but in the morning old arthur is sure a pain in my ahhh hands. Hope your having a great day, I am since i'm off this beautiful Wed. here in Pa. ~Deach~

have a large perfrated lf ear drum how long does this take to heal also im taking amoxicllian.i can hear out of that ear however it sounds muffled some times
Rod Moser, PA, PhD replied to liqsn's response:
I can't answer that question.....a don't know how LARGE a perforation you have, or where the perforation is located on your eardrum. Healing is an individual process, so it can take a few weeks....or a month....or in some rare cases, it may not heal at all and have to be surgically repaired.

Only your doctor -- someone that can examine you -- will be able to address this question.
