This page is a listing of some of the webpages made in 2006 and beyond. Since I left
my previous medical practice (McHenry Medical Group), I've had a little bit more
time to make some webpages. I've also included on here the descriptions
and sometimes the reasons behind the webpages. Other doctors play golf, I
make web pages.
General Disclaimer: None of these websites substitute for seeing a
physician face to face. None of the information found on my websites
should be considered a replacement for getting one on one professional medical
information from your doctor.
That being said, not all my websites are medical, vein, plastic surgery or acupuncture related.
I'm still trying to figure out this section. But about my web pages, I
make them for fun. I have been making plastic surgery web pages since
1996. Here's part of my
first webpage that I've made for plastic surgery, it is no longer "live".
My basic style of web page design hasn't changed since. I've been busy
taking care of patients as a priority to updating my style of web page
creations. I code in HTML, use front page, and enjoy experimenting with
SEO (search engine optimization).

Frequently asked questions for
Breast Augmentation: I hope to make a series of these web pages
with Dr. Tammy Wu, board certified Plastic Surgeon. These commonly
asked questions may give you more insight into the breast augmentation
process. Like I mentioned in my disclaimers above, this website is no
substitute for a one on one consultation because every person has unique
goals and medical requirements.
injections: Getting rid of some wrinkles on the face without
surgery. Excerpt: Hyaluronic Acid
is a naturally occurring substance in the body so it naturally dissipates
into the body with time.... You know that Restylane is hard to
spell. I've made the website so that I can practice spelling it.
It isn't spelled restalin, restalyn, restalyne, restaline, or restyline -
why don't they just call it hyaluronic acid?
http://www.beyondniptuck.com: Beyond Nip Tuck is a free and open

Silicone Implants - a
quick webpage whipped together for the press about the FDA's approval of
Silicone breast implants on November 17, 2006. Has a nice picture of
three different profiles of breast implants.
How to get
a SBA loan if necessary - small business loan, different types of SBA
loan. We considered these but in the end we haven't (yet) decided to
go with this program. Some financial stuff they don't teach you
in medical school.
How we set up a plastic surgery open house in the past and some of the
financial numbers - ie. cost involved in running such a special event.
Including considerations of Why have an open house? You could
probably count on spending $4K to put on an open house event like the one we
had on Nov 5, 2009 (our third open house). The $4K figure does not include
revenue lost for not seeing clients that day, the cost of electr., the cost
of raffles, the cost of extra decorations such as flowers, and doesn't
include the cost of pre-puchasing more products to sell on that day. I
review this site from time to time. I find it pretty valuable,
especially the realization of costs. 3rd year 2009 - 100 people <---
this is the most recent as of the initial writing of this webpage. Of
the 100 people, 47 people had purchased something from the office.
Computers in our plastic surgery Modesto practice. - a listing of
different computers that we have. Sometimes I refer to this list when
I think about upgrades or new software. I might need to do upgrades
such as buy more computer memory. My lesson here is try to get more
memory for scanning/image related medical needs. The recommendations
that were initially provided to me for computer memory wasn't enough.
Scanning and looking at scanned medical documents takes a lot more memory.
For XP, I've found that 1 gig of memory (RAM) is better than 512K which was
initially recommended to me. And for my own computer whcih has 1 gig
RAM would probably be better served with 2gigs of RAM since I have many
things connected to my computer.
Efficiency at work - I had to think about this to help myself and staff.
This applies to all aspects of work and life. A work in progress I
guess. Below is an example of some of the most important things on
Strive to maximize quadrant 2:
"Quality Time - Important but not urgent".
Doing so can reduce the amount of time
taken up by firefighting quadrant 1 activities, since many quadrant 1 activities
could have been quadrant 2 if they had been done earlier

about 300 applications between February 2006 and November 2006 for Dr. Tammy
Wu's Plastic Surgical Practice in Modesto, CA. This is the same
webpage as the Other Plastic Surgeon's web pages. I figured that
the advice and the links on this webpage were all related to the job search
for a cosmetic career in Modesto.
