So an update on my work injury i ended up with a fracture, dislocation, 2 tears in my meniscus and that was all on only my left knee.. my right one also had a tear to the knee. This dr released me back to work 6days after my injury, i even told her that's impossible she looked at me with a dead stare then called my job stating i was faking and demanded pills which was all false allegations i never once said anything about pills besides "all i have is ibuprofen" this dr is no good for workers comp she does not care and i was stuck for a month half stressing to find dr notes to avoid going back to work cause i clearly was in no working condition. Thats a review on this sad case of a dr, i told her she was quack and i was proven corrected. PLEASE CHOOSE ANOTHER DR FOR WORKERS COMP !!!

I had a visit due to an acute neck cervical spine issue causing severe nerve and tight muscle pain. My head was locked in the downward position. While pacing in the room waiting for someone to help me I thought I heard a door close When I turned around there was a lady standing leaning against the cabinet with her arms crossed over her chest and had a very angry look on her face. “ what’s the problem “ she says. I am nervous and in serious pain so I tried to tell her what happened and what was hurting. She said “ what do you want to me to do about it” I finally sat on the bed, she touched my upper back for maybe 30 seconds. She did nothing else! No physical examination, no questions were asked about my history, No labs, no x-ray or MRI. She had absolutely no compassionate bones in her body. Soon I realized this doctor lady was worthless and I just needed to leave. So I did and in the weeks following up with my doctors after MRIs CT scans and x-rays and put in the correct doctors care I have a very very serious neck issue called Cervical Myelopathy causing severe spinal cord damage and I have to have surgery to fix this. I would like to recommend to your doctors there, perhaps approach your patients with a better understanding that they may really be hurt, maybe they’re not there to seek narcotics! Dr Jennifer Pepper, MD I’ll never forget the ugly way you treated me nor will I forget your name. This was a very unprofessional and unproductive visit and I’m highly highly disgusted with them.

    Is a flu shot necessary?

    Everyone 6 months or older should get vaccinated for the flu every year. Influenza, or the flu, is a serious virus and infection that hospitalizes and kills thousands of people annually. And it is constantly changing. The flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your family from contracting the virus.

    Do I need to get a flu shot every year?

    Flu vaccines are needed annually, primarily for two reasons. First, the flu virus is constantly evolving, meaning the virus you received a vaccine for last year is unique from the virus in the upcoming season. As such, the vaccine itself needs to be different. Second, the vaccine itself wears off and your immune system’s response to the flu virus decreases over time. Unless you receive the vaccine every year, you will lack necessary immunity.

    When should I get a flu shot?

    Each year is a little different, but flu season generally starts as early as September. Getting a flu shot early in the season - August to October - gives your buddy the best opportunity to build up immunity to the virus as it does take roughly two weeks for the vaccine to protect you against infection. Of course, if you are unable to get the flu shot early, getting a flu shot later still helps as the virus could last through May.

    How effective is the flu shot?

    Each year, the CDC and other organizations conduct studies to determine the effectiveness of the flu vaccine against that years flu virus. According to the CDC, recent studies show that flu vaccination reduces the risk of flu illness by between 40% and 60%. Of course, there are multiple types and strands of the flu virus including influenza B and influenza A(H1N1), as well as influenza A(H3N2). Generally speaking, flu shots tend to work better against influenza types A & B.
