That means working in partnership with your primary care provider as well as keeping important health history readily accessible in case of emergency. "I speak with a lot of my patients ...

They weren't given the option of ... [full story]

"There's no way these Christmas decorations would still be up if this was two years ago," Katie said the week after New Year's. LIVING WITH PAIN - ... [full story]
