To drive a commercial vehicle even a school bus, one needs to have a health card. The new regulations have made these more stringent to protect our roadways and we are up on all the changes in order to serve you.
TEXAS HEALTH STEPS EXAM:
In order to have certain insurances cover the treatment of your child, one needs these exams which cover many preventative health issues including discussing household and lifestyle safety issues as well as the need for vaccinations.
We have nearly eradicated, have gotten rid of, several diseases due to the use of vaccinations. Some are coming back due to some people not getting the needed vaccinations. I believe these vaccinations are safe and I do have an open mind and will discuss your individual situation with you. Your opinion is important to me.
Flu vaccine, hepatitis vaccine, meningitis vaccine, tetanus shots, combination tetanus and diphtheria and whooping cough shots you need before you can hold your new baby.
flu shot or nasal swab, chicken pox, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis, tetanus and whooping cough, meningitis, hepatitis a, haemophillus b , polio, pneumonia, rotovirus and human papilloma virus to prevent spread of cervical cancer later in life.
MEDICARE ANNUAL PHYSICALS:
This annual exam is supposed to be covered in its entirety by Medicare providers and includes lab tests and other preventative studies outlined by the USPHST, United States Preventative Health services Taskforce.
GYN EXAMS AND PAP SMEARS:
This is part of being a family doctor to offer all patients preventative health services. Dr. Dan has delivered over 100 babies throughout his career and has been trained in various gyn procedures that he performed while on active duty while taking care of our troops… yes we had female troops even back then. …by the way, Dr. Dan has kept a copy of the birth certificate for each child he has delivered.
SKIN CANCER TREATMENTS:
The Texas sun is a formidable opponent and the results of wrestling with the sun over the years can show up much later. Please pay attention to your skin. We have many options to offer you.
We can burn off lesions with electric cautery under anesthesia, but if the lesion is suspicious, we prefer to be safe and take it off surgically so a pathologist can give us a diagnosis while things are curable.
By taking off a lesion that Dr. Dan thinks may be suspicious, we show you that we care for all of you. We sent the lesion to the lab to make sure that the borders are clear… that means that we have gotten all of the lesion. If there is a complicated lesion or one in a complicated location on your body, we may have to send you to get a special type of surgery done only in special clinics, MOHS surgery. This surgery gets all the cancer and does minimal damage to your skin. We have your best interests in mind at all times.
freezing warts and actinic keratosis lesions, pre-cancer lesions is simple and quick and safe.
MEDICAL TREATMENT FOR SKIN CANCERS:
Sometimes we have had too much exposure to the sun and many lesions occur. Some of these lesions we cannot even see…. Unless we use our secret weapons… and medicines. Let’s not let any condition get out of control in the first place.
DIABETIC AND NON DIABETIC FOOT CARE:
Dr. Dan is very good at taking care of feet and especially those unruly toenails. A little prevention can prevent a lot of pain. If you are a diabetic, your feet, which have the poorest circulation, can get bad infections that could lead to amputation. Let’s not let that happen.
if all else fails, we will get rid of the offending toenail. We can take part of it off or all of it off or even take all of the nail and treat it with medicine and electric cautery to keep the nail from coming back. I still think preventing the problem is better.
EAR WAX REMOVAL AND EAR LAVAGE:
What?!... What? Yes this can help your hearing and often can relieve ear pain. DON’T USE Q TIPS!!!!
When accidents happen we are still at your service and will make time for you.
FOREIGN BODY REMOVAL:
please don’t wait until the big splinter is broken off too short to remove. I have the tools and the skill. I can take fish hooks out without cutting you or the hook because I have been at it a long time. And don’t forget me when your child sticks something up his nose or in her ear.
we have cryo therapy and some other measures to help with this annoying problem caused by a virus
For many years I have injected knees, shoulders and fingers getting good relief and results. I have much experience with sports and orthopedic injuries and know sometimes a condition requires special care. Because we care about you in the long term and I do know my limitations and will refer you to a specialist if the situation is more serious and requires more extensive care.
JONES COUNTERSTRAIN TECHNIQUES:
just a simple technique I have learned from my osteopathic friends to relieve spasms quickly.
TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS AND DRY NEEDLING:
Ann Travel invented trigger point therapy and I have read her book and given thousands of trigger point injections and done extensive dry needling. Just a part of the job .
