Due to unfortunate circumstances I wasn’t in the mood to take pics during my vacation. Just glad I was able to rest my brain (just a little & minus the fact I was doing math homework) before the start of fall semester. Never take life for granted or the fact that we are given the opportunity to accomplish all that we put our minds to do. #physicianassistant#prepa#futurepa
So, today I started reading the book called Girl, wash your face and it’s such a good read. The book is so inspiring that I felt compelled to share the quotes that resonated with me. Also, I must confess, I have a “quote book” where I write down all of my favorite quotes. - “You are more than you’ve become and you are utterly in control over what you do with that knowledge” - “You should work on different angles too attack the same problem” - “Some days I feel as if I am getting closer to the better version of myself” - “Life is meant to be lived” - “If I wanted a better life than I was born into, it was up to me to create it” - “It’s not about where you are but who you are” - “I made a promise to myself and I don’t break those ever” - “If you constantly make and break promises to yourself, you’re not making promises at all” - “When you really want something you’ll find a way” - “Whatever standard you set for yourself is where you’ll end up... unless you fight through your instinct and change your pattern” - “The only thing standing between me and achieving my goals is the ability to build on past success” - “Our words have power, but our actions shape our lives” - “The most fundamental thing you need to do before you can take care of anyone else is to take care of yourself” . . . . . . #paschool#paschoollife#pa#prepa#pastudent#futurepa#physicianassistant#medicine#science#healthcare#medical#pac#pas#pance#palife#mspa#md#do#doctor#physician#prepaadvice#womeninmedicine#healthcare#stanford#stanforduniversity#physicianassociate#quotes#inspirationalquotes#inspiration

The list of benefits are endless…🌟 Acupuncture is great for expecting mothers! 🤰🏽🤰🏻🤰🤰🏾 It is a safe treatment that can be done all throughout pregnancy. The female body works in incredible ways, as it is able to develop, nourish, and birth a human life • During a short period of time time, the body begins to experience physical, emotional, and psychological changes. This can commonly be associated with negative side effects: such as difficulty sleeping, back pain, nausea, anxiety, headaches, and interference with one’s overall quality of life • 🚫Medication is often prohibited during pregnancy, and can have a detrimental affect on the unborn child. Studies have shown that acupuncture has endless benefits during pregnancy. Acupuncture is able to not only alleviate many of the negative side affects, but has also proven to provide mothers with a more enjoyable pregnancy. During this time, it is important to connect the mind, body, and soul, while maintaining a stress-free environment for both you and your baby. The negative side affects include: preterm labor, spontaneous abortions, and abnormalities • ⚠️ Alternative therapy such as acupuncture can be used to stimulate the release of flowing energy that will promote the physical and emotional well-being of the mother and her baby. 🤱🏽🤱🏻🤱🏼🤱🤱🏾 Thank you @sohma_health for this great opportunity!

The kind of #appreciation received from a patient for acting immediately on her newly diagnosed symptomatic AFib just 1 yr out. Her personal statement on my professional performance. This is why I’m a #physicianassistant To practice with pride and passion is my prestige. #methodtomypractice
They say you pay to play, and that’s the truth. The last day before vacay, and it was a long one. But I finished all my charts, called a million patients, and updated my boss about pending items. I rounded and sent home a patient at a smaller hospital, and then we banged out two robots at our main hospital. Now...let’s see if he can manage things while I’m gone for the next week. 🤣😂
O-Kay! We’re getting to the implants now. Risks and benefits will be similar to the depo shot (especially with Nexplanon, the arm implant) because they use progesterone only instead of an estrogen/progesterone combo, like the ring and most birth control pills. * It’s a really popular option, and most of my patients like it. Check out my story to see me demonstrate a Nexplanon placement! #nexplanon#birthcontrol#istandwithplannedparenthood#armorup#gyn#obgyn#physicianassistant
|| L I F E || Somedays you show up to work and feel like you’re getting dumped on... other times you go to the grocery store and actually get dumped on! • Well it was both of those things kind of a day today! • But there are 2 points to today — first, don’t let one interaction/comment/remark determine your whole day & second, don’t let the rain keep you from your food!
Oh happy day🌻 With just about 2 weeks and 6 exams left in my final semester of didactic, I am finally feeling like myself again. Everything feels lighter and I haven’t minded studying recently (you know it’s real now)! I’m looking forward to rotations in a month and bringing you along for the journey!
