This Website is Intended for Educational Information Only

We are very pleased to be able to provide our educational information and opinions to you.  Often we receive letters explaining one’s medical history, asking for medical advice. Unfortunately, we are not a medical treatment facility and we are absolutely prohibited to render any diagnostic impressions or to advise an individual of a particular treatment.  That would be practicing medicine.

This website is intended for educational information only. Treatment for an appendicitis is not a do-it-yourself project.  Neither is treatment for anxiety disorders.If you believe, after reading this, that you might have an anxiety disorder, you should see your physician who can diagnose and treat you, or, refer you to an appropriate specialist. ​​
