Hi! My name is Dr. Scott Wise, and I have a family I care very much about just like you do. If you have arrived at this site, then I am going to make the assumption that you have a direct interest in the best health of your family, like I have in mine. This means that you want to learn about the medical conditions and diseases that are most likely to affect both the individual members of your family and impact your family as a whole. I understand from my own experience as a son, husband, and father that when it comes to medical conditions that affect our families we all want to find out as much as possible about what can affect them and what we can do about it.
The American Medical Association reports that approximately 90 million Americans have trouble understanding medical information. It is NOT the patients’ fault in my opinion, which is why I am here to help.
The current system of healthcare in the United States no longer permits our country’s physicians to spend quality educational time with their patients. As a physician concerned about providing an integrated, well-balanced system of medical information to those who need to know, I am concerned about this.
This website and my new book, called Health-Wise House Calls, are my attempts to balance the system a little. On this website you will find information, resources and health-related products designed to help you understand more about your family's health.
On this website you will find out about common medical conditions that will affect you and your family. You will be able to discover ways to help keep your family and yourself healthy. You will find many useful health tips, commentary on health topics in the news, and informative health reports, books, products, etc. You will have access to health books containing vital information and you will be able to stay abreast of health related developments which can directly affect your family's health.
The information contained on this website is empowering, enlightening and informative. Use it wisely. As always, I encourage you to Live Health-Wise. Do it for yourself. Do it for your family.
