A friend suggested that I visit smallbusiness.xo and look into upgrading our networking and communications at my office after a disaster last week. I have been practicing medicine for twenty years. I don’t know much about the business part, but someone talked me into using an on-line scheduling site. You pay a monthly fee and all the information about scheduling can be accessed on-line. The internet site also takes care of making confirmation calls and patients can log on to schedule or change appointment times or dates. In theory, it is a great idea, but if you stinking internet crashes it can leave your office crippled. It happened for the third time in a month last week, this time for the longest time yet. I was totally over it! That’s why we have decided to upgrade to t1 internet at my friends’ suggestion. I can’t afford to have an internet FAIL! It pains me to think about how stressful and hectic not knowing who is coming into your office and at what time they are coming. It is also embarrassing to have to ask the patient there name and spend time pulling there file when they are already in the waiting room!

Totally Potty Trained

Yes, I'm happy to say that Tyler is totally potty trained. It took him about 1 week to learn to use the bathroom to go pee and poop but now he is doing great when he needs to go. He is not wearing any diapers during the day or night coz he knows when to use the bathroom. He is wearing briefs now like a big boy. I am so proud of him he doesn't even wet himself at bedtime. He stays dry all night and goes to the bathroom to pee when he wakes up. I can't believed he is growing so fast. He will be 3 years old in June. He is growing smart and sweet boy.
