Common Questions and Answers about Health volunteer san francisco


Avatar n tn Besides medi-cal which you definitely need to apply for, you should phone area hospitals and Universities to find a good heptologist ( liver doctor), in case you don't already have one Ask if they provide charity care. I see a very good doctor at CPMC in San Francisco. UCSF is another good place in my area. Charity care at CPMC covers doctor visits, lab visits, and pathology ( lab results) done there at thier facility. A financial adviser at CPMC would tell you what's covered and what isn't.

148588 tn?1465782409 Amnesty International estimates it is in the thousands, far more than the number of executions in all other countries combined. The San Francisco-based Dui Hua Foundation estimates China executed 5,000 people in 2009.

Avatar m tn SInce you are in Fremont and I am here in San Francisco there are 3 transplant centers in the Bay Area. Stamford, CPMC and UCSF in San Francisco. Since I have been treated at UCSF and just had a liver transplant 3 weeks ago there I would recommend your wife seeing someone there. Her gastroenterologist can give her a referral to UCSF so she can be seen there. Remember advanced cirrhosis is a very serious life-threatening illness. Without proper care it can be fatal.
Avatar f tn Kiesle had been sentenced in 1978 to three years' probation after pleading no contest to misdemeanor charges of lewd conduct for tying up and molesting two young boys in a San Francisco Bay area church rectory. Cummins, the bishop, told the Vatican that the priest took a leave of absence and met with a therapist and his probation officer during the three years.

2059648 tn?1439770265 I know so many people who are so lucky going thru life looking for whata, coulda, shoulda! I was diagnosed while living a great life in San Francisco! The life of an artist! At 40 I was running and single gear cycling the hills of SF! Fit as a horse! The city had no funds to treat and told me what healthy things to do and I did them. I was called to help my parents in PA. PA had tons of money to play with peoples health. Once disabled, and fighting for years I won disability.
1323278 tn?1298126088 Particularly because of my active fantasy life, I love imagining living in a lot of places, always on a coast, though. San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle all have their charms, and since I've been to all, this has some basis in reality. But when it's all boiled down, I'm an east coast kind of lady. This is where my roots are, my family, my home. Horrible hot summers, very unpredictable but often bad winters, beautiful springs and falls. Home is always best.

1462810 tn?1327364049 Day, the San Francisco surgeon who treated her breast cancer non-traditionally epitomizes this problem. She has an interesting website, which discusses the issues. Even though she was a well-respedcted surgeon, it proved almost impossible for her to be treated at medical facilities in other than the AMA approved manner. One clue is that under current protocols a physician cannot INITIATE a suggest to use a non-convention treatment.

Avatar f tn 1993 Aug-Sept International Ozone Association holds Eleventh Ozone World Congress and Exhibition August 29 to September 3rd, 1993 in San Francisco. Tours were given of 9 San Francisco water treatment plants using ozone, booths of industrial ozone manufacturers were perused, plus the two day medical ozone meeting was well attended by participating doctors from all over the world. Comment: O3OHATOP - That's ozone in Russian.
Avatar n tn know absolutely, after many biopsies, in England and America, and a laparotomy, that there is no dispute as to my dx of Crohn's, but some 4 years ago I met a young Scottish woman of 37 yrs old, living in San Francisco, on the American Crohn's and Colitis interactive website, now defunct. She said she thought she had Crohn's, but now I wonder, as I never got so ill as she did. We "talked" perhaps twice a week, by phone or e-mail and hoped to meet up this year in London.
Avatar m tn She was so strong pulling through this horrible nightmare not only having to fight for her own life carrying our baby. I brought her home from the uc San Francisco hospital the day before Christmas :) we had to go to dialysis everyday and being a high risk pregnancy we had our hands full but were very grateful for janel being with us :) we made it to a little under 2 months early when she went into labor the ob thought this was as far as she and the baby could make it.
163305 tn?1333672171 and released by the San Francisco-based Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice, looked at the number of people under the age of 18 who were arrested in the state over the past eight decades. The research not only found juvenile crime to be at its lowest level ever but, in the wake of then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signing a bill reducing the punishment for possessing a small amount of marijuana from a misdemeanor to simply an infraction, the drop in rates was particularity significant.
Avatar n tn I also recommend Misha's book (The Hep C Help Book.) I am in San Francisco and have an appointment with her next week. A friend who has hep c saw Misha on a monthly or weekly basis and she swears by her. Misha co-wrote the book with Robert Gish who is a well-known liver specialist here in the Bay Area. Side effects and wellness are different for everyone and the diagnosis of hep c is definitely not a death sentence. Eat well, forget the alcohol and fried foods and laugh a lot.
Avatar m tn @hollyv: i know everything can be BS but i would believe expert data rather than some online dude/gal opinion, once again I say this and I will stick to this. It's like a survey on people's average height in United States. They say average height for men is just 5'9". If you live in NYC and in San Francisco, definitely you would have different opinion on this data. You would say "average men is definitely taller than 5'9"' but it can be also vice versa.

233616 tn?1312790796 because in spite of being sick a lot I still do physical volunteer work, and only then volunteer to help others in here.... Many in here have very busy lives, as nurses, doctors, lawyers, microbiologists, etc. You'd be very surprised if you knew the caliber of people who come in here. So.
Avatar f tn Sh*t, nobody even agrees with me on this forum. Luckily, I live in San Francisco, a blue liberal city, in a still largely liberal state (although Arnold is changing that). I'm a socialist. I will never fit in politically or economically. The Republican wingers have done a great job of making "liberal" a dirty word. We have lost our communitarian spirit in this country.
