Hello and welcome to my blog. It is a blog about women’s health issues, the latest and greatest trends in medicine, minimally invasive surgery, obstetrics & gynecology. Yes, I will occasionally bore you with my small but insignificant view of the world. I am a doctor, but I appreciate the world of art,design, fashion, music and of course, celebrity gossip. I love animals, especially pit bulls and cockapoos. I am an avid salsa dancer and crossfitter, which means I enjoy torturing myself at the gym and on the weekends at a race. I enjoy scuba diving and have traveled the world only to sink into our deep blue ocean to enjoy the silent stillness. I love poetry, especially Pablo Neruda. I can spend hours designing jewelry that I will never sell or figuring out a blog that I may never post. Here is my attempt.
I hope to be a source of information. I hope to help you answer some questions that you might have been afraid to ask or clarify conflicting information in our vast networks. I hope to make you laugh and stimulate your mind. I hope that if you haven’t visited a doctor because you are afraid, that you come to realize that maybe now it’s time. We are not all scary, I promise. I may even tell you a couple of things or two about what it is like to be a doctor in this rat race…the good, the bad and the ugly.
I would like to set a couple of ground rules: #1. I will always keep things simple. #2. Any posts/pictures have been published with permission. #3. If you are inclined to leave a comment, please be polite & respectful, there is no room for unkind or rude comments, the world is filled with too much hatred and I certainly don’t want that in my blog. #4. I will try to be as accurate as possible but please don’t take my word as gospel, there are always many opinions. #5. Please feel free to comment if you have a burning question about something like the theory of quantum physics. -Cheers! H. Elena Rodriguez, M.D.
