New voice podcast!June 3, 2012
September 16, 2012
Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well. I am great, busy as always. I am trying to do more and more with less time.
I am expanding my website. Full credit actually to my webmaster Uri who actually does all the work! I have a new patient portal at https://johnvyselaar.com/pportal.html. The idea is for patients to enter past medical history and medications there so I have this information at the next appointment. This will help to make things more efficient, and allow you as the patient to have more time to ask me questions while still ensuring I have the information I need to make treatment recommendations. Information is stored on our secured servers to maintain confidentiality. There is also an opportunity to submit questions to me.
I am also trying to expand the website with more voice podcasts. I will start with brief ones that explain basic concepts in cardiology and cardiovascular medicine. You should see one available shortly.
In other news I read with interest a new story that with the decline in smoking, sedentary behavior now kills more people worldwide with cardiovascular disease than smoking does. To me this underscores the importance of exercise and as much regular physical activity as possible. There is no magic activity in my opinion, you just have to find something that works for you and that you can enjoy and do regularly. Also it is important not to be sitting too much…I am looking at equipping my office with a standing desk to minimize my own sedentary time.
So I hope you are all doing well. I am interested in your comments and feedback as always. What have you done to make your office or work or hobbies more healthy?
