    Dr Ralph Goodman
    First, I was reeling.  I could not believe he would tell anyone to stop taking medicine that improved their hormones ratios, which are thereby proven to reduce risk of hormonallly based cancer recurrence.  (Multiple published medical studies support this.)
    Second, advising to stop Rx I've taken for years - Rx which has improved my health and reduced my cancer recurrence potential - seems an pretty arrogant  assertion after a 10-min exam and casual scan of the 3 yrs of lab work. A finer tuning (perhaps changing the Rx a little and looking for the effect) seems much more reasonable and less dangerous. I am after all a human who wants to keep living a high quality life, not a lab rat that can go into shock with no one really caring.
    Third, he pretended not to know about/ really doesn't keep up with current endorcrine health studies (legit, peer-reviewed studies) that my other Drs are aware of.  He even said some of their lab work was bogus: "I don't believe in that kind of testing."  So obviously he had some blockage to openmindedness and forward-thinking from PubMedAbstract studies, and National Institute of Health records.
    Fourth, I'm wary of any Dr who offers me antidepressants on the first visit.  He repeatedly said about my current (low-cost) prescriptions, "Yes, you feel better when you take them, but people feel better when they drink alcohol too.  It doesn't mean they need alcohol."  But he was fine with offering me an antidepressant....?  Was that a pharmaceutical sales pitch?  
    Summary: If you are at death's door, and he is the only endocrinologist you can reach, then go.  Otherwise, seek more intelligent health care elsewhere.

    I was scheduled to meet with an insulin pump rep to go over my new insulin pump and sensor. When I went to check in I was
    informed that I wasn't going to be trained since they didn't set up the training and it was lunch time (actually is was an hour and 15 minutes prior to their posted lunch hours).This training had been set up a week in advance and I was never notified of any change or cancellation. I had made all the arrangements needed to be there since it is out of town. After their lunch I went back into the office I was told that the rep was there this morning but since I was a 'no show' the appointment was cancelled and the rep is now gone.
        This topped a continuing issue with an office staff that has in the past had a high staff turnover (with exception of the Office Manager who had been the receptionist and billing) lost paperwork, forgotten paperwork (requiring multiple request) doubled billed for office visits, excessive wait times, and now cancellation of a needed class. I was flustered; worried about being called a no show for an appointment I showed up for, and upset about being misinformed to about the pump rep. I wanted to speak with someone about why I wasn't to be trained, was it just because they didn't set it up or were they upset that I was choosing a different vendor than the one they promote. When I broached the subject with the office staff she walked down the hall announcing "SHE"S HERE" which did nothing for my mood, I informed them that yes I was here and that the office manager was inept in her ability to properly manage the office. 
       My husband contacted the diabetic supply representative who told me she was indeed in the office and not informed of my presence in the waiting room. She was told that she could train me in a public location (possible HIPAA issue not to mention loss of dignity and privacy) but not in his office. My husband tried to contact Dr. Kamel to inform him of the behavior and performance of his staff and a message was given to me to tell him not to contact Dr. Kamel or his office ever again.
      I received a call from the Nurse Practitioner the next day and we had agreed that the office manager and I would move forward and be civil towards one another and I assumed the matter was closed. The following week I received a certified letter from Dr. Kamel informing me that I was a difficult patient and was not to be given any further medical care by him. I was, as a relatively new type one insulin dependent diabetic abandoned by the physician who only heard one side of the story, his office staff.
     I find it appalling that a professional would assume that his staff is guiltless and that a patient who was stressed, on a new medical device, and mistreated, is being hostile by calling his staff inept. When did standing up for yourself and refusing to be bullied in your own healthcare constitute being difficult. As a retired advanced practice nurse, I can only shutter to think what happens to the uninitiated and uninformed patients. This is the reason for my posting.

    It is a wonderful workout for women. It is not like going to a gym; when I do the circuit for thirty minutes it is perfect. I pay for it myself, it does not cost that much. It is affordable on a monthly basis. Not only do they offer the circuit with all the machines which is very concentrated and very good but they also do a lot of other stuff like zumba at an additional cost. They go the extra mark and do luncheons and so forth. It is a nice place to go.

    Curves is really a good system. You don't have to know anything about weights and stuff, because the machines are more hydrolic and made for women. It is a women's only place. You don't have to ever wait for a machine, because it is in a circle and you go every so often someone goes and pulls a cord and says change stations. At that point everyone has to move on. You know when you go in you can go around twice, like the recommend, and get in a half hour work out. They also have a great stretching machine. The people there are very, very helpful. They are very nice and can help you with your diet. They can help you with a lot of things. They have a personal fitness person to help you, you can do it yourself, or they have a computerized system that can help you. They have all sorts of levels of help without the intimidation of a traditional gym. A lot of women don't want to deal with how much weight or how many reps do I have to do. The music they have helps you keep the beat. It is a pleasant working out experience. You wouldn't build up like a body builder would, but it is good for women. Especially older women who want to keep toned. There are a lot of really older women in their 70's that just go around. It must be really good for them to move around the machines and keep active.

    The one I go to is really nice and the people there are really nice. They do have newsletters that they will mail to you.

    He is a family doctor but he also specializes in endocrinology. He is very knowledgeable and he always spends a lot of time with his patients. He goes the extra mile to figure everything out.

    I like to go and work out there because I don't work out at home. There a lot of nice ladies that go there. It's very nice to work out with nice people and where it's not co-ed.
