Denise was amazing! It's scary looking for a DWI lawyer for your first DWI. You want someone who is going to get you out of the mess unscathed. As a medical professional, a lot was on the line to make sure I got out with nothing on my record, as licensure is at stake. Denise listened to my entire story, and spent hours in front of videos and audio recordings of the events in order to find an out. She compassionately explained the entire process to me so that it wasn't so unknown. She then explained what things I did right and wrong, and what things the law inforcement did wrong. In the end, I got out with zero on my record, that's after an accident involved DWI case. (That is almost impossible to do for those who don't know). She allowed me to get back to my life and be able to breathe knowing that someone was handling my case who actually cared about who I was as a person. She understands that people sometimes make mistakes but shouldn't suffer for the rest of their life for them. I just can't say enough about how thankful I am to have chosen her. She knows the system, she was the only person who was willing to spend the time pouring over videos to find an out in the situation. She did her homework and got me out clean. Don't go for some cheap guy who promises you'll walk away from it with a parking or littering ticket. DON'T BE FOOLED. It'll still go on your record as amended. Go with someone who has been doing this for a long time, knows the system, and will spend the time researching your case, and most important, someone who actually cares about you. As for me, I highly suggest denise. If I had to go through this whole terrible ordeal again, I would definitely go with her every time. She was really there for me and helped keep me calm during the process. She even followed up a few weeks after just to make sure I got my license back in a timely fashion. Not only a great lawyer, but also a great person.
My health symptoms were life-threatening and my general Dr sent me to the hospital. I was in the hospital for 3 days, was tested and examined by several doctors. They got the symptoms out of danger, but couldn't determine the root cause. They said some things were way too high, others way too low, and I needed to see 'a specialist'. They didn't even say what kind of specialist. My general Dr sent me to Dr. Sneid. Dr. Sneid diagnosed the core cause of all my symptoms on my first visit, determined which treatment was appropriate on my second visit, and this core illness was resolved on my third visit. In the following months, all of the other illness symptoms diminished. This happened about twenty years ago. Without Dr Sneid, I would probably still be visiting doctors A, B, C, and D treating symptoms 1 thru 10 (maybe the reason they couldn't figure it out was because there were so many symptoms). But with Dr. Sneid, the core illness was quickly resolved and I'm happy, healthy, and very thankful. I wouldn't think of recommending any friend or family in the Midwest needing an endocrinologist to see anyone besides Dr. Sneid. In my experience, in our first visit he figured out what two other groups of doctors couldn't. So, if you want, or need, one of, if not the most knowledgeable, efficient, and effective endocrinologists in the KC metro, Dr Sneid is most likely who you're looking for.
In October, I separated from my husband and called Mr. Stewart to represent me. From the beginning until the end, he was extremely polite, courteous, and on top of my case. My experience with him was like no other attorney I have dealt with. He was fair about pricing and very up front explaining every process and what obstacles in my case would possibly require more funds. He gave me all options available and did not make me feel pressured about choosing the most expensive one. My divorce was uncontested. 30 days was required to lapse after filing in order to request a court date. On day 31, Garry called me first thing in the morning to inform me it was time to proceed. I was in complete shock. Attorneys these days rarely call you let alone a day after the required minimum days have lapsed. While in the courtroom, he continued to explain every step with me just as he did from the beginning. His approach to his work made my divorce process the best it could possibly be considering the situation. There is no way I can thank him enough and even referred a friend to Mr. Stewart. If I ever need additional law representation, I will definitely be calling Garry Stewart right away!
Best lawyer I've ever had to say the least! Garry is a great honest man, and will definitely get what ever situation needed resolved! Most reasonable you'll find, and very responsive with info or questions needed etc. His total retainer and fee's quote was substantially lower from any other attorney I contacted as well. I'm in Washington state and Garry was my lawyer for an out of state situation for a period of over 6 months, and I really couldn't of asked for better representation. Garry is also text friendly which was a huge convenience for me, and never had any trouble getting a hold of him or Garry returning my calls etc. He was able to get my driving after suspension reduced to no registration which was a major break. I was so fortunate to have found Garry's add in the yellow pages! He was able to get a significant reduction on my fines and court fee's etc and didn't ask for any additional fee's from me. If you're looking for a honest, and amazingly reliable lawyer, then look no further. You wont regret it...
Garry Stewart helped me in a stressful situation. My snow plow was hit by a career criminal in a snow storm 7 days before Christmas. The man who hit me ran from the scene. I had medical bills and was off work for a month from my injuries. My case had been dragging for 6 months and the insurance company and prosecuting attorney were not taking my case seriously. I heard that Garry was a serious, well-spoken attorney. As soon as I called him, he started getting things done. He called the insurance company and let them know we weren't messing around. He went to court and I could see the other side's attorney getting nervous. In 6 more months, I paid off my medical bills with a large settlement, and was even able to buy a new truck. The man who hit and ran came out of hiding, pled guilty with the city and lost his insurance. Garry's fee was much less than the other attorneys I talked with, and I feel he gave my case more attention than they would have. I feel justice, happiness, and relief. Great attorney.
My family (including my toddler) have been seeing Dr. Walker and we are extremely happy with his care. We find Dr. Walker knowledgeable, reasonable and cautious in dispensing medication, and keen on diagnosing. He is also very personable and he has never rushed us when we needed to discuss our ailment and treatment options. Whenever we call his office with questions, the nurses and office staff are efficient in returning our calls. I once got a return call (after hours) from Dr. Walker within a minute! When I delivered my son, Dr. Walker visited me three times in the hospital either to check up on me or to discuss my son's care. Because it is a family clinic (and not a pediatric office), we occasionally have difficulty making a last minute appointment for our son, but his office has a great Nurse Practitioner, Kathleen Mallett, and she has helped us tremendously in the past too. Overall, we highly recommend Dr. Walker and his office.
Mr. Stewart has been my attorney for 20 years. 4 years ago I was living out of state and needed help wrapping up some mo legal troubles. I had no reservations in mailing my retainer to him and knew this matter would be resolved promptly and with unwavering professionalism. He appeared in court 3 separate times on my behalf and resolved the issue completely. He's also handled both of my divorces. The experience described above is appalling to me because the proactive nature of business I've always experienced. Garry is in no way a lazy or incompetent attorney. You can have faith in him. I wouldn't have trusted him so many years with such sensitive legal issues. You won't find a better attorney.
In the late 1980's I had a client who owed us a large amount of money I was needing an attorney. I asked the Prosecuting Attorney of Jackson County for a referral of the most honest and dependable attorney he knew. He recommended me to the Stewart Law Firm. He helped me bring closure to that scenario and was excellent in helping me form a corporation for my business. He also supported us in estate settlements, property transfers as well as personal counsel from day to day challenges of life. We're thankful for 25 years of faithful and dependable service from Garry Stewart and we will continue to use Stewart Law Services in the future.
We are grateful for the absolutely positive experience with Northland Bone and Joint and Dr. James Reardon. The office staff was very helpful to schedule a timely appointment. The front desk staff were very friendly. We were seen promptly at our appointment time with no wait. Michelle measured my son for a brace. She demonstrated great expertise and answered all of our questions. Dr. Reardon's exam was thorough and we appreciated him reviewing the MRI with us. We were very pleased with the professionalism of Dr. Reardon and his staff. I would highly recommend Northland Bone and Joint and Dr. Reardon for anyone needing orthopedic care.
Physicians and surgeons help to keep people - from infants to the elderly - as healthy as possible. These individuals provide diagnoses and treatments for a wide variety of ailments, and preventative care and early detection for more serious illnesses. Whether you love or hate going to the doctor, the fact is your physician is there to listen to your health concerns, take preventative measures against diseases and advise you on your options for staying in tip-top shape.
In 2013, there were more than 1 million doctors of medicine in the U.S., over 854,000 of which were active. Additionally, in 2012, there were about 18,000 active general surgeons in the country. It's important to know which type of physician or surgeon you need, how to choose the best one, and account for other considerations in order to stay healthy.
Patients can choose from a wide variety of physicians depending on doctor specialty and what problems they are experiencing. Here are a few of the most common types of physicians that you may see in your lifetime:
Your GP is the doctor that you go to for regular checkups, vaccines and to identify health issues. GPs can treat many different illnesses and injuries, from the common cold to a broken arm. If your health requires a second opinion or expert care, the GP will refer you to a specialist who has the skills to focus in on the issue.
Heart attacks and heart disease are some of the most common afflictions seen across the country, making cardiologists important to your long-term health. These physicians specialize in studying and treating the heart and related diseases.
Other than a GP, the dentist is likely the most common physician you'll ever see. These professionals work with the human mouth, ensuring that your teeth and gum health are up to par. Patients typically go to the dentist twice a year.
Dermatologists are focused on skin-related issues and diseases, from skin cancers, to acute acne, eczema, psoriasis, and general cosmetic concerns like aging and scars. Most will also perform annual or semi-annual mole checks to screen for any signs of melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer.
If you have a number of sinus infections or have had your tonsils taken out, you've likely seen an ENT specialist. ENTs handle ailments related to the ear, nose and throat, often related to taking out tonsils and treating hearing issues.
For many women, their gynecologist and obstetrician are the same person. These professionals work with the female reproductive system to focus on reproductive health, fertility issues, prenatal care, options for new and expectant mothers, neonatal care and childbirth. OB/GYNs can also help in the early detection of breast or cervical cancer.
There are obviously a number of physicians that you can choose from, but how do you know if they're the best choice for you? Here are a few considerations to help you pick a physician:
Look at Your Insurance
Before you get down to the details, you need to verify which doctors are covered by your insurance and whether they are in or out of your carrier's network. Rates may be cheaper if the doc is in network – a doctor can be covered by your insurance but not necessarily in network. Out of network is typically more expensive. Doctors often add and drop plans, so it's important to ensure that your options are compatible with your insurance plan. Doing your homework will help you avoid unexpected expenses.
Check for Board Certification
Your physician should be certified through the American Board of Medical Specialties. Doctors must earn a medical degree from a qualified school, complete three to seven years of residency training, be licensed by a state medical board and pass one or more ABMS exams to be certified.
Examine the Reviews
Reviews of a doctor can reveal a lot about what your experience may be like. People may grade on staff friendliness, availability and effectiveness of treatment. Looking at these evaluations and getting recommendations from family and friends can direct you toward a physician for your needs.
Surgeons can literally hold your life in their hands, and it's important to find the best one that can put you at ease and treat you effectively
You need to feel comfortable with your surgeon. It's important to communicate your concerns and that your surgeon can respond adequately. Surgeons should be willing to go over the details of your procedure and answer any questions that you may have. They must take the time to discuss and address your worries.
If you're going in for surgery, you want someone that knows what they're doing and has a high success rate. Ask how often the surgeon performs this surgery and try to find one that regularly does it. This will give you peace of mind that you're in capable hands.
Your decision on a physician or surgeon can be majorly affected by the insurance plan you have. You may have insurance through employment, your spouse, your parents if you're under 26, or the marketplace if the previous options don't apply to you. It's important to understand how your insurance works to have the full picture of what you'll need to pay for.
Your insurance will have a deductible, which is the amount that you're responsible to pay for covered medical expenses. Some plans have coinsurances, where you must pay a certain percentage of the bill, and insurance will cover the rest. Co-pays state a flat rate for certain services, like paying $20 when you visit your GP or a $100 co-pay for an emergency room visit. Once you reach your out-of-pocket maximum, which will differ if you're an individual or within a family plan, your insurance may pay for 100 percent of covered medical expenses for the rest of the plan year.
If you plan to go to the doctor, need medication or have been recommended for surgery, call your insurance provider or go online to see what your plan covers. You can choose the best doctor for your needs, understand your options and prevent yourself from being blindsided by medical expenses.
Most doctors require a phone call for an appointment, although some may provide online scheduling as well. Be sure to have your insurance card with you when you set an appointment, and to bring it with you to the actual appointment. They need the ID numbers to verify your coverage, and will usually make a copy of the card for their files so you don't have to show it again unless your insurance changes.
When you call, let them know if you're a new patient, as this will require you to complete some paperwork for your first visit. Tell them the reason for your visit, such as your symptoms if you're feeling sick. It's also important to inform them if you have Medicaid and to find out if you need to bring anything to the visit, like current medications or medical records.
From here, the receptionist will likely ask what dates and times work best for you. During your call, it's important to be honest about your symptoms and the reason for your visit. This information will help the doctor treat you and give him or her an idea of what to expect. Your appointment may progress faster as a result, and the doctor can come prepared with a list of options to better care for you.
Doctors see a number of patients in a day, sometimes in 15-minute increments in areas where the physicians are in high demand. This can leave little time for doctors to perform thorough examinations, and they can end up missing certain problem indicators. While some problems, like a cold or flu, can be diagnosed in this time, more complex ailments require attention, which takes up time. Reviews can illuminate which doctors actively spend the necessary time with their patients and which ones are pressed against the clock to meet demand.
Surgery has some more dire risks attached to it, so be sure to talk to your surgeon about the potential issues that can come up as a result of your procedure. If a patient has a reaction to anesthesia, it can cause very serious complications, but this is an uncommon occurrence. Blood clots can be a significant problem after surgery, often caused by inactivity during recovery. Infections, numbness, scarring, swelling and death are all possible, but the likelihood of these issues will vary depending on the type of surgery you're undergoing. Talk to your doctor about your concerns and your risk potential.
Surgery affects people in different ways, but as you begin to emerge from anesthesia, you'll want to alert your nurse to any issues you may have. The nurse will tell you how the procedure went, what effect it will have on your condition, what to expect when you get home and how long it will take to get back to normal. If you start feeling pain, the nurse may give you medication to stop it from getting worse. When possible, it's also advised to move around to avoid blood clots from developing in your legs. This can be as simple as occasionally flexing your knee or rotating your foot.
Some surgeries are outpatient procedures, where people are released the same day. For major surgeries, patients may stay at the hospital for a few days to be monitored and address any concerns before being sent home. Discuss with your surgeon the projected length of the hospital stay and what you need to bring.
Your recovery time and follow-up expectations will vary depending on your procedure. For example, you can be expected to be on your feet within a few days of having your wisdom teeth taken out, but it may be weeks before you have fully recovered from a broken foot or heart-valve surgery. Your surgeon will give you a list of things that you'll need to do during this time, including what medications to take and when you'll be able to get back to work and other activities.
Every surgery will have a follow-up call or appointment to discuss your recovery and allow you to ask any questions about unusual symptoms or changes in your overall health. If you have a major operation, like heart surgery, it's important to make regular checkups with your doctor or a specialist to ensure that everything is normal. Visiting a doctor will help deter infection and verify that everything is healing as expected. These appointments will give you peace of mind about your state of health and ensure that any issues are caught early on.
