Steven Tyler was in town!

Back in April, we received a Wolf Trap brochure for summer concerts in our office. As Dr. Choby scanned the brochure, her eyes landed on the concert on June 21st. Immediately, she called Wolf Trap and bought a ticket. You might be asking: what her very excited to order so quickly? It was Steven Tyler. After missing out on the Sting concert that was earlier in the year, she took full advantage og her Wolf Trap membership. After a five chat with the Wolf Trap representative, she was set to see Steven Tyler.

After two full months of root canals treatments, emergencies, having our office laptop stolen and other personal things going on, Dr. Choby was anxious for the 21st to come along. And let me tell you, the wait was worth it! Last night was amazing! Especially after a long day at work with back to back treatments.

The show kicked off at 8PM, with a group of women playing a few songs as an introduction to Steven Tyler. The women were great! They were the perfect group to introduce the main star. About an hour into the show, the crowd started to come alive as Steven Tyler took the stage. For those who don't know who he is: Steven Tyler is well known as the lead singer of Aerosmith. He's known as the "Demon of Screamin'" as he has a great vocal range and for his high-energy performances.

That title is well earned. He came onto the stage in a very vibrant outfit and with lots of energy. 
Steven Tyler put on a great show, as always.

OSHA & HIPAA Seminar.

Every year, after the craziness of the Holidays, our office participates in the annual OSHA & HIPAA training seminar hosted by Harris Biomedical. Thankfully, we don’t have to travel too far as it usually takes place in the Maggiano’s in Tysons Corner, literally a 5-minute drive from our office. Harris Biomedical has this seminar every year in the Tysons Corner area. Look out for their flyers in the mail around the beginning of the year. Check out their website for more information:
The four-hour seminar consisted of a two-hour session dedicated to OSHA and another two hours dedicated to HIPAA. Breakfast was included! For those who don’t know what OSHA or HIPAA means, here’s the breakdown.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act, aka OSHA, are a collection of regulations that are managed and required in most states, Virginia being one of them, to guarantee employee safety and good health. OSHA, or referred in Virginia as VOSH, instructs employers how to…

Opioid vs Nonopiod Drugs: Which is better?

We're truly dumbfounded with the amount of patients we treat in our office asking for opioids after treatment. Yes, we understand there will be discomfort! Patients will do and say anything to obtain them. Though we're very understanding of the situation, our goal is to inform patients that nonopioids work just as well or even better than opioids. Also, our goal doesn't only apply to patients but other doctors as well. In the past, we've had patients with opioid addictions. Most of the time, these patients are hard to work with because they won't consent to treatment unless we assure them they'd being get a prescription for opioids afterwards. We hate to see a patient leave our office in pain! In these cases, patients will argue until we come up with an agreement which is asking them to try nonopioids first, if pain escalates, we'll prescribe 6 tablets of opioids and no more. Majority of the time, they don't need them.   Unfortunately, there are some pa…
