Jason's Blog

Here's your chance with Jason's blog to learn exactly what goes into the making of a doctor. 

This will be a place where I record my thoughts, experiences and happenings as it relates to medicine. I'm sure this is going to make for some very interesting and captivating reading so you'll certainly want to come back often to see what's taking place.

I will caution you about one thing.

These will be real and factual stories. The only thing which may change are identifying information to protect the privacy of colleagues, patients and medical institutions involved. 

But aside from this I'll present everything in the most accurate way possible.

I'm actually getting excited just thinking about the possibilities that are about to unfold. Granted I've been known to witness things ordinary folks don't see on a regular basis.

What exactly am I referring to you may be asking?

It's Real, Not Made Up

During my first year of medical school I witnessed a man get hit and killed by a car while crossing the street. 

I've seen another person get caught under a bus.

I've come to the aide of a classmate who herniated a disc in his back while weightlifting at the gym.

I've been in church and needed to render emergency care to a church member experiencing excruciating abdominal pain...ultimately requiring a multiple day hospital stay.

This is just the tip of the iceberg because there is plenty more to come your way.
