"I went here once when I was 16. I had what I now know to be chronic IBS-D. I’m not sure if the exact date but it was in August 2016 so here we go. The second this guy opens the door and looks down on me sitting in the chair in the office, I knew this wasn’t going to go well. For some reason I just got a terrible first impression. So he sits down and we start talking about how this condition is giving me anxiety and the anxiety is making the problem worse. School was starting soon and I had no idea how I was gonna go in with this problem. He fully sat there and said to my mom as if I weren’t even there: “oh she’s goin to school, even if we have to put a cork in her.” YES. HE JOKED THAT ID HAVE TO PUT A CORK IN MY BUTT. Then he sat there and told my mom she needed to step up and force me to go to school and have a normal life, whether I had diarrhea in my pants in public or not basically. He didn’t even begin to examine me or even have me sit on the exam table. He just sat and said “the problems not with her GI tract, it’s with her anxiety. Get her to a psychiatrist.” We asked if I could have IBS medication or SOMETHING to help me and he gave us nothing. When we left my mom was trying to be optimistic and asked what I thought. I said it was SUCH a waste of time and a waste of my energy to get myself out of the house with all the problems I had. I told her I was absolutely not going back. We ended up going to my pediatrician I still had at the time and he sent me to a pediatric gastroenterologist and he was FANTASTIC. I’m 19 now and too old to see him anymore and am going through the process of finding a new doctor. It certainly will not be this guy or anyone else at that practice. I wouldn’t trust him to examine my animals let alone me or my child if I had one. If you have a child or you’re under 18, look up Dr. Qureshi in Carlisle. That’s where you should go. -J"August 15, 2019

What is Surgical Oncology?Surgical oncology is the use of surgery to diagnose or treat cancer, or to manage the symptoms of cancer. The Egyptians pioneered the treatment of cancer using surgery, removing breast tumors as early as the seventh century. These days, surgical oncology is much more complex and effective. Most cancer treatments involve surgery, and in some cases it is the only treatment needed. Surgical oncologists work together with medical oncologists and radiation oncologists to provide care for cancer patients. Along with medical oncologists, surgical oncologists tend to be the primary providers of cancer treatment. Almost every cancer patient will have a medical or surgical oncologist who is in charge of managing their treatment and making decisions about their care. The specialized knowledge of a surgical oncologist is less about surgical techniques (which may be very similar to techniques used by a general surgeon) and more about an understanding of cancer itself. Surgical oncologists have an advanced knowledge of how cancer presents and changes, and they know the best way to use surgery to treat cancer. Surgical oncology is a rapidly advancing specialty, and many new techniques and procedures have been developed in recent years, including minimally invasive surgery and robotic surgery. A surgical oncologist is able to safely wield these complicated techniques to remove tumors from the body.

What is Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery?Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the specialty providing surgical care for the mouth and jaw. It is unusual in that it is a hybrid specialty combining the professional education of both dentists and medical doctors. The path to becoming an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, or simply ‘oral surgeon,’ begins with graduating from dental school. The dentist then attends a surgical residency in a hospital, learning general surgical techniques alongside other physicians. While many routine oral issues can be treated by a dentist, there are some that require specialized surgical care. Some of the procedures performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons include:
- Removing wisdom teeth
- Dental implants
- Corrective surgery for facial deformities
- Repair of facial trauma
- Cleft lip or cleft palate surgery
- TMJ surgery
- Orthognathic surgery (jaw alignment)
- Sleep apnea surgery
What is Nephrology?Nephrology is the medical specialty that deals with diseases of the kidneys. Nephrologists deal with illnesses that are caused by lowered kidney function, such as certain types of hypertension. They also treat illnesses that harm the kidneys, such as acute kidney disease. Other specific diseases and disorders that are treated by a nephrologist include:
- Chronic kidney disease
- Polycystic kidney disease
- Acute renal failure
- Blood or protein in the urine (hematuria or proteinuria)
- Kidney stones
- Nephritis, or inflammation of the kidneys
What is a Biopsy?A biopsy is a procedure performed to remove a small sample of cells for testing. The cells are examined in a laboratory to check for disease, or sometimes to see how badly a known disease is affecting them. Biopsy can be performed on any part of the body. Although biopsy is most often associated with cancer, it can also be used to check for other diseases, such as infections. A biopsy sample can be scraped, cut, collected with a needle, taken with a machine that punches out a tiny piece, or removed with the tiny tools in an endoscope. In most cases, a biopsy is a simple outpatient procedure. Depending on your procedure, you may need to stop taking certain medications beforehand, such as blood thinners. Be certain to tell your doctor if you are pregnant, as certain biopsies require the use of x-rays to guide the needle to the right location. There is usually very little pain associated with a biopsy. You will have to wait a few days to hear the results.
