Happy Mother's Day

Written by

We all know that everyone in the whole universe came to life from their mother's womb with the exception of Adam and Jesus (peace be upon them). Thus, there is a very special status for mothers out there as they are truly the glue that keeps the family together and give love, attention, and care for her children. 

If you are sick, hungry, or feeling stressed or just simply want to talk about what happened at school or at your job you rush to your mom. If you can't go to sleep or had a bad dream that woke you up, you will call for your mother to come and comfort you and so on. 

We will never do justice to our mothers by celebrating her on just one day or just take her out to dinner once a year, but, everyday should be filled with honoring mothers for their endless contributions whether they are living with us or if they have passed on. To appreciate their non-stop giving of unconditional love to their children. 

My Mother had a great impact on my upbringing and in choosing medicine as a profession to help mankind. She stayed up with me late at night to study for my exams and prayed for my success and happiness. I owe her a lot as all what I have accomplished was due to her prayers that God has answered. 

Now I see a new focused marketing campaign to target women and mothers as they are considered the main decision-makers for health care choices for the family. And thus, they will be reached out to by major insurance companies, hospitals and providers to secure their market share. It would be great to give all hard working mothers a break, especially in the middle class situation as they struggle to make ends meet. This is usually the case for single-mom families to make healthcare really affordable would really help them out. 

The mothers put everybody in the families needs ahead of her own needs including healthcare needs. She may not even have any coverage as she would be faced with tough choices whether to put food on the table or to provide healthcare coverage. And if she collapses the family collapses, and thus this is our society. 

Our Low-Cost Quality Healthcare Program has a unique component of our social responsibility, giving back to the community and we are certainly looking forward to helping so many hard-working mothers, not just on Mother's Day but rather on a continuous basis to save her a bunch and at least take away some of the heavy burden placed on her shoulders to care for the whole family.

Preauthorization Medicine!

Written by

The full and absolute control of third party medicine in anything and everything has to do with the care of patients is real . Now this concept is going through a gateway of authorization. Preauthorization for any medical test ,procedure, office visit, medication to be dispensed, hospitalization, need of  Medical devices, durable equipment, oxygen, cane, walker, shoes etc. and the list goes on. 

The daily pains of so many physicians and their staff as they go through this everyday in an attempt to serve their patients; getting them what they need and well indicated and providing them with the appropriate medical necessities. 

When being confronted with preauthorization doctrines imposed by insurance companies for which the first response in about 99% of cases would be a denial. If a physician is to fight for their patient he or she may get lucky to get authorization for a test or a procedure that their patients  need on the third time around. Make no mistake about it you will be given an initial optimistic response "Oh yeah, its all covered by insurance" to find out the painful reality of going through the insurance system of preauthorization. For example, 88 year old medicare patient who has very high blood pressure and was put on so many blood pressure medications that failed and ended up in costly hospitalization that could have been avoided if the patient was given the specific medication that was appropriate to her condition.  After 18 faxes, 7 phone calls with the pharmacy explaining that this was the only medicine the patient could tolerate the answer was still that we had to call the insurance company to get it approved from which we would be given a case number. After calling the 1-800 number and  explaining for 25 minutes why the specific medication should be authorized for the patient we were told that this request would be reviewed by the pharmacy committee and the decision would appear in 24 hours. After the 24 hours however, the request for authorization was denied. As for this frail elderly patient was told that they would have to pay $6 a pill which they could Not afford as it was out of pocket although, this patient should have been given the medication with 100% coverage between medicare and her insurance. 

The time and energy wasted, the pain and suffering of this senior patient waiting for their medication to be authorized knowing that if patient doesn't receive it that they will be hospitalized, causing the system  thousands of dollars which could have been avoided if the medication had been authorized as it was made available in low cost generic form. 

Similar stories like this happen to patients across the country on daily basis  proving how inefficient, costly, and stressful this system to both patients and caring providers. The saga goes on for this elderly cardiac patient at no avail. 

Preauthorization medicine was designed to save money to insurance companies on high utilization providers but patients are not getting the care they need or deserve. Someone will never be given the preauthorization on therapy or a procedure that could be lifesaving which will be delayed and pushed back and in the mean time the patients condition may deteriorate and in some cases may never get the therapy or life saving procedure until they are deceased by the time they get the authorization!. 

The evidence -based  Medicine clinical guidelines are already well established for each disease category and therefore , they should be the guiding force for preauthorization medicine.

Happy Doctors Day!

Written by

When I met one of my colleagues as he was greeted with ( Happy Doctors Day), he replied, what is so happy about it? He went on and explained that he saw recently about 50% of private practice physicians gone!. They sold out their practices since they could not survive the rising operational cost to run their small businesses with ever decreasing revenues to the point that they had to sell out their practices mostly for Hugh losses. He added there is more than 65% of physicians are suffering from ( burnout syndrome) as they work so much harder for less revenue , more regulations, mountains of bureaucratic paper work that is using up their precious time that should be focused on one thing, which is taking care of patients!

Physicians see themselves loosing autonomy to make appropriate decisions for the care of their patients as so many of them became employed and they have to do what they were told to do if they want to keep their jobs. As they go through daily uncertainty if they were going to keep their jobs or going to be replaced with lower pay personnel ( physician extensors) as cost -saving measure by the employers!

Even thousands of the employed physicians were terminated instantly and a lot of them did not even know about it and why and you can imagine the devastation to those physicians and their families.

According to recent surveys, more than 50%of physicians will not recommend their kids to become physicians, as the very demanding life style being on call, long hours of work , so many years of medical school and training and of course the big student loans to name a few. The myth about doctors making big money has been gone when CMS , the Center for Medicare Services published online the different pay scale categories , showing the top earners were the CEOs and Administrators , and the physicians came in the least earning category, although they control 100% of the healthcare expenditure. Additionally, physicians have lost much of their ability to express their concerns in fear of being labelled as ( disruptive physicians and risk to loose license to practice medicine)!

You may add, he explained the rising of Retail Medicine by big companies which will end up hiring mostly Nurse Practitioners rather than physicians for bottom line profitability. You can forget about innovations and Entrepreneurship which made America lead in the world as many physician practices continue to close and physicians are pushed to either earlier retirement or simply give up and get consumed only about their livelihood !

All this is taking place at a time when we are suffering from big shortage of thousands of physicians with more baby boomers needing healthcare services, although some proposed Tele Medicine to be the answer to physician shortage which is not realistic. To make things worse for the remaining practicing physicians especially in the small and medium private practices have to get ready for the ICD9 to ICD10 conversion anticipated to take place in October this year, only few months away with some earlier reports predicting that claims denial rate by CMS could reach 100% with Hugh IT issues as the control of tremendous amount of health data by various IT vendors with only big vendors dominate and the small IT vendors helping small physician practices will crash, HIPPA issues and others , which will have additional cost burden estimated to be tens of thousands of dollars coming at a time of anticipated interruption of payments , see who is going to survive that double whammy!

After listening attentively, I started asking my colleague to first take three deep breaths with me slowly in and out to help relax and then I wanted to share with him the bright side of choosing Medicine as a Noble profession with acknowledging all the current challenges facing physicians, especially those in small private practice who traditionally delivered most of the healthcare services to patients over the years .

I told him that there is always going to need for Physicians , no matter what anyone says!, and that patients are always looking for that caring and compassionate doctor who delivers healthcare efficiently. Also patient value those qualities in the doctor caring for them and they do not mind paying for these services . Additionally, there is always going to a need for the human component of healthcare , no matter how fancy the digital medicine and technology apps get. There is always a golden rule if you do what is right and ethical , you are going to do well as a physician .

I added , if you or any other colleagues are looking for a dignified model for the practice of Medicine, then it will be the Direct Care Model or Third Party- Free Medicine where is a trust by the patient that their doctor will do his or her best for the patient and doctors honors and respects his patient to deliver the most valuable service( health). I always encourage young students to go to Medical School if they have the passion and calling for this great profession to be able to serve and help people. If you do that then you will enjoy both on professional and economic aspects , you may not make tons of money , but you will have enough to live well.

So Please, if you see your doctor today , tell him or her ( Happy Doctor Day)!

Preventative care

Written by

By
Published:   |   Updated: May 7, 2013 at 02:17 PM

Chronic diseases are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States, advises the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Chronic diseases are heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and arthritis and are the most common and costly of all health problems for Americans.

These chronic diseases are also the most preventable, stressing the importance for early detection.

Some believe early detection, like an ounce of prevention, is worth a pound of cure.

One Hernando county physician has implemented a practical approach for local patients to spot small problems before they become big ones.

Dr. Adel M. Eldin, M.D., specializing in internal medicine and cardiology, his practice is Brooksville Cardiology, explained his health and wellness program, which focuses on preventative care. He presented his program to more than 50 participants gathered at Palace Grand in Spring Hill, listening to testimonials from patients who have experienced success with the cardiology center.

"It's possible to detect problems before there's an emergency and 95 percent preventable, given our knowledge, medications and lifestyle modifications," Eldin said.

But there's one problem, Medicare and other insurance companies don't cover preventive screenings without the presence of symptoms, he advised.

"Insurance focuses on illness, rather than wellness," he said. "Wellness is there for you."

"When you invest in your health, you won't have to be part of the insurance jungle out there." Eldin said. "I've spent five years introducing a new program that identifies risks, teaches preventive care and provides an on going partnership in healthy living."

Brooksville Cardiology is a medically supervised program to prevent disease and guide people into health-related choices. They review family and medical history, assess current status, identify areas that need attention and implement a plan. The patient is involved in the decisions for well being. His staff is trained to perform screenings, non-invasively to look inside arteries for plaque buildup that can cause strokes (brain shock), aneursyms and heart attacks.

One patient drives from Ocala to come to Brooksville Cardiology.

"Dr. Eldin showed me more compassion than any doctor my whole life," said Errol Wiles. "I signed up for this program two months ago. It's been a positive experience."

He mentioned that he plans to move to Jacksonville, but will continue being a patient, driving to Brooksville for appointments.

"We become your partner and coach, not just a specialist attending to one symptom at a time," said Dr. Eldin. "We have a model we are proud of."

The member fee is $150 per month. Covered medical services include two office visits for routine check-ups, baseline cardio-vascular testing including treadmill exercise stress test, echocardiogram, vascular studies, 24-hour Holter monitor testing, monthly Coumadin check, interrogation of cardiac devices, annual flu shot, year round supply of recommended supplement of Black seed, e-newsletter, personal access to physician through email up to one time per week and referrals to other specialists when needed. Members also receive access to a webinar which features educational programs on health.

There are no denials for coverage under the plan for pre-existing conditions and no additional payments are needed for tests such as co-pays. Additionally, there are no referrals or pre-authorizations for testing. Open enrollment is available throughout the year.

"This is the way health-care is headed," he said. "We want to boost the immune system and prevent diseases."

One supplement he recommends is Black seed, or Nigella sativa. It's also referred to as black cumin.

"Nigella sativa (black seed) is an important medicinal herb. In many Arabian, Asian and African countries, black seed oil is used as a natural remedy for a wide range of diseases, including various allergies," according to a study found on the U.S. National Library of Medicine and National Institutes for Health website.

Black seed oil proved to be an effective adjuvant for the treatment of allergic diseases, based on the research.

The seeds/oil has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antipyretic, antimicrobial and antineoplastic activity. The oil decreases blood pressure and increases respiration, according to other research regarding its pharmacological and toxicological properties.

The seeds have been used in the Middle East to treat asthma, bronchitis, rheumatism and related inflammatory diseases.

Researchers at Kimmel Cancer Center, Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia have studied that thymoquinone, an extract of N. sativa seed oil, blocked pancreatic cancer cell growth and killed the cells, acting as a Histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDAC) for use in psychiatry and neurology as mood stabilizers and anti-epileptics

Studies are in the early stages.

"Black seed has been around for thousands of years," said Dr. Eldin. "It is an old remedy mentioned in the Bible and was found in King Tut's tomb."

Black seed is not recommended for patients undergoing treatments for a medical condition or if they are pregnant or lactating, according to information provided by Envirotech International, Inc., the manufacturer. More information can be found at www.blessedsunnah.com.

Nigella Sativa has five FDA patents in the United States and one in the United Kingdom for the treatment of diabetes, inhibition of cancer cell growth, improvement of the immune system, viral infections, psoriasis and asthma.

Concierge Medicine makes sense!

Written by

Concierge Medicine is becoming more and more a viable option to traditional Medicine for both patients and physicians. Establishing direct care with the patient and getting rid of the hassle and focus on the delivery of quality healthcare for a monthly or a yearly charge with 24/7 access to the physician , same day or next day appointment with more time spent with the patient addressing his or her concerns , making care for patients much easier and with positive experience during and after the visit.

We have Concierge Medicine Program serving patients from 20 to 100 years of age in Tampa, Florida with very transparent services and fee schedule as follows

Age 20 -30 years old $ 50 per month, with 10% off for the annual enrollmen

Age 30-40 years of age $ 100 per month with 10% off for annual enrollment

Age 40-65 years of age $ 150 per month with 10% off for annual enrollment

Age 65-100 years of age $ 75 per month with 10% off for annual enrollment as

Wellness Plan.

In addition , we donate 5% back to the Community mostly to fight hunger!

No denial for any pre existing condition, no co payments, no pre authorization, no referral needed, Just come and be treated with dignity and respect you deserve!

These unique combined Internal Medicine( Primary Care) and Cardiovascular disease all together makes it a One Stop Health care which so many patients like and appreciate. When patients see the real value in these services which would save them additional thousands of dollars in healthcare by aborting hospitalization or Emergency Visits in more than 95% of cases as they were managed successfully on out patient basis on top of saving so much on Medications, Blood work and diagnostic testing, so patient really appreciates the services and the savings and you can see our testimonials on Facebook, go to www.brooksvillecariology.com

www.facebook.com/pages/Heart-Health-and-Wellness-Program/278124625560440

So when patients do the math, one Visit to Emergency Room average cost about 5 Thousand dollars which will be equivalent to 10 years enrollment for someone between 20 to 30 years of age! and one day Hospitalization average cost 15 to 20 Thousand dollars which will equal to 40 years , yes 40 years of enrollment in my plan for the same age group , and you can do the math for the rest of the various age groups , so when the patients are educated , the decision which they will make during this tough economy will be so easy. This goes to support that Concierge Medicine program that I developed was really developed to help the middle class hard working Americans , and dispel the myth the Concierge Medicine is for the rich! ( not true ) and when you put a few dollars a day less than $ 5 /day to invest in your health would make a great investment compared with what you have to spend elsewhere with emphasis on Disease prevention, Comprehensive Wellness and Stress management.

As Healthcare is going to continue to be driven by consumerism with current impact of social media that makes patients (consumers) more educated about choices in healthcare including Concierge Medicine. A good example of that is the positive impact of Affordable Care Act on the growth of Concierge Medicine as many big corporates such Wall mart, CVS, and soon Target will also provide Concierge Medicine in Retail Clinics as needs grows!

Concierge Medicine allows doctors to concentrate on the practice of medicine and provide a personalized quality services with their patients as they are NOT pressured compared with traditional practice ( usually half number of patients seen per day) , so it is good for the patient and the doctor as well who makes a fair compensation for years of education and training!

In brief , I think there will be further growth in Concierge Medicine in 2015 , It makes sense and that is why some Health Insurance carriers like Cigna made Concierge Medicine available for employees and made it complaint with ACA as it made Direct primary care ( Concierge Medicine) bundled with catastrophic coverage Policy . I welcome any input or opportunity to cooperate with our local Community and beyond as there is so much need out there and we have a good model to share. Have a Happy and Healthy 2015!

Peace on Earth for all of us

Written by

I recently had a phone call from Dan DeWitt asking about Muslims taking part in the religious display at the courthouse in Brooksville and I mentioned to him that this Christmas holiday is the opportunity for our fellow friends of Christian faith to express their religious holiday and rightfully so enjoy it and I mentioned to him that the love of Jesus shared by Muslims and Christians alike should bring them closer than ever this holiday season.

I thought it would be beneficial to share some facts that Muslims love and respect Jesus as prophet of God who was sent with guidance to the people of Israel and who is mentioned in the holy Koran more times than the prophet of Islam, Mohammed (Peace be upon Him).

It is very interesting to notice that Christians know the holiest places in Christianity in Jerusalem, but very few know that it is actually two Muslims who open and close the holy door to these Christian sites and serve as the custodians of the entrance. Their names are Adeeb Joudeh and Wajeeh Nuseibeh, both are Palestinians and Muslims bearing the key to the heart of Christianity.

Watching world events and the amount of human suffering and all conflicts created out of ignorance and manipulated under religious context, one comes to realize that the only viable path to achieving peace is by education and dialogue, not by wars and killing.

Although Muslims do not celebrate Christmas, we do celebrate the message of peace of all prophets on a 24/7 basis. Let us work for peace in the season to make peace on Earth a reality not just in the Christmas card.

Dr. Adel Eldin, Brooksville

Use blessed Ramadan to reinforce healthy living for all

Written by

Ramadan, which began last week, comes at a time when the world is in a desperate need for a spiritual uplifting.

Consider this blessed month as a month-long sale for any good deed that will be multiplied hundreds of times to help wipe out all sins of the previous year. Giving up all worldly pleasures, fasting all day and praying all night is the monthly spiritual routine.

To reflect on the spiritual values of Ramadan, which include patience and sincerity, we teach the youth that they cannot fake their fasting as they are watched by God all day. Ramadan teaches us to be humble as there is no difference between rich or poor, young or old. All fasting for the sake of their Lord from sunrise to sunset.
