Today at ScienceRoll Bertalan Mesko gives me my first Blogterview. This follows hosting my first Gene Genie Carnival
I am very excited to have joined the ranks of those who he has interviewed.
Personalized medicine is a passion for me. The true dream is to not have to call it personalized medicine or personalized genomics. The real name should be Medicine.
I put this cartoon here because it represents the "part-time" work I do for my blog, my training, and lastly my new medical practice. Let me tell you about what is so revolutionary at Helix Health of Connecticut (sorry, I am waiting to release the website).
- We follow you for life (Something clinical geneticists rarely do). This is necessary given the rapid changes in genomic discovery. Your risks change as we learn more.
- We are available for consultation anywhere you are (I can't share how). Just Call 1-914-954-6406. Soon we will have online booking :)
- We put Geneticists together with Internists, OB/Gyns, Genomic Counselors and Pediatricians (when needed) to make care plans one patient at a time. We go over them with the patient to make sure they understand the plan. More importantly, we frequently "check-in"
All of these things require web 2.0, and I am a huge supporter of technology in medicine.
The Gene Sherpa Says: This blog post says it all. Personalized Medicine is US.
