Have you ever had a doctor you just can't stand?!
I am preparing health baselines with my local bloodless hospital center and I've changed my doctors to doctors affiliated with that hospital. That said, I now have to get to know these doctors. I have a cardiologist, not because I have a probl... Read more

What should I do? Pilates? Only strength train? Please... Read more
