We’re all getting older. We’re all human. Some of are aging faster than others, have you seen EB walk? As we get older we find we need medical care more than we did when we young and spry and full of hormones. If you have something wrong with your head, like me, you might need to find a psychiatrist or worse, a neurosurgeon. If you something wrong with your old ticker, you need a cardiologist, I would think. If you have something wrong with your joints, you need find a joint doctor – whatever they’re called. If you have something wrong with your eyeballs, you need an eyeball specialist – they’re known as ophthalmologists. Doctors are great for using Greek and Latin names for common things like precondti for paper clips. Some doctors are really good and some are really bad and some are really good at golf. But if you’re sick you want a good doctor who is good at fixing whatever ails you.
And some hospitals are really bad and some are really good. You don’t want a hospital like the Hotel California – where you can check-in any time you want, but you can never leave. Right?
So where do you find a good doctor? How do you know what hospitals in your area are like the Hotel California, and which are not? We’re pleased to tell you our site of the week will help you make the right choice when you need a doctor. It will also help you steer clear of those dimly-lit shoddy hospitals reminiscent of Dr. Frankenstein.
We’ll let the progenitors of our site of the week pontificate for you:
“HealthGrades is America’s most trusted, independent source of physician information and hospital quality outcomes. HealthGrades’ online properties are the nation’s leading destination for physician search and empower more than 100 million consumers annually to make informed health care decisions.

HealthGrades is the best (and most trusted) way to find and create a relationship with a provider because:
• HealthGrades is a recognized expert in measuring health care quality
• HealthGrades enables patients to search, evaluate, compare and select a physician matched to their specific needs
• HealthGrades not only facilitates the appointment, but also connects patients to the information they need to make informed health care decisions…”
They’re quite wordy, so we’ve had to cut them off. If you’re looking for a good doctor, a good dentist, a good hospital, you’ll find our site of the week – HealthGrades very useful. Of course we hope none of you never need a doctor or a dentist or a hospital. But if and when you do, you’ll find our site of the week can help you make the right choices – hopefully :-).
