Have you ever thought about why? Why did applications such as Instagram, Facebook, Tik Tok and Snap Chat become so distractingly popular to us? People ask why I left my large group. I left because Doctors are needed in medicine. Not only medicine as clinicians but the healthcare business. While pretty brands take our picture and post to gain credibility and sell their product, we spend less time focused on the business of healthcare. I’m a dedicated doctor and all my patients have my personal cell phone, but before 3 months ago, I had no idea how much Medicare valued a consult. I didn’t know how much my boss collected for a thoracentesis (routine procedure pulms perform). Did you know? Maybe you did. I had no idea what IPA meant. It means independent physician associations by the way. I had no idea how much the hospital collected for an outpatient bronchoscopy with biopsy. I didn’t even know how much my former boss got paid for that same procedure I performed. I was distracted. Distracted with beautiful pictures and posting. Distracted by working so hard for someone else on ONE aspect of healthcare, learning nothing else. Now is an opportunity for me to learn the business. Sorry, but too many of us have said, “I don’t want to deal with (insert a filler word). I just want to see my patients and have weekends off. Have a good life balance.” Who are we kidding? I’m done being distracted. I’m ready to not only care for my patients as I have but also understand the business to gain an understanding of the written national healthcare policies. I love social media and I’m going to take pictures and post but healthcare encompasses more than just caring for patients. It’s time for us (all members of the healthcare team including physicians) to understand the business as much as we know how to write a history and physical. That’s why I’m doing this on my own with help. To learn that shit. My advice. You learn too. #business#pulmonary#criticalcare#internalmedicine#standing#healthcare#california#westcoastlung#medelita#whitecoat#lungs#ILD#havingfun#building#growing#MD#newportbeach#iknowyouarereading#real#raw#socialmedia#biz

I stumbled out of bed, slipped on my flip flops and snagged my drone bag.
On this particular day, I was very sleepy when I made the drive to the Newport Beach jetties.
The wild night before of sushi, sake and a movie really tuckered me out 🤦🏼♀️. BUT, I was eager to fly.
Thankfully, I had my pre-flight checklist to keep me on track with what needed to be done before I flew my Mavic 2 Pro.
Do you use a pre-flight checklist while flying? Do you find it beneficial?
A pre-flight checklist:
It's essentially a 'to-do' list or routine that helps assure accuracy in carrying out a proper flight.
It reduces the failure of crashing. It's repetitive, but necessary if you want to avoid making any mistake. I find that sometime reading a checklist out loud, helps assure that I did everything the way it needed to get done.
You can tailor yours to fit the gear that you have on hand, but there are some basic guidelines here that can you follow with your drone. I’ll be sharing my updated version soon, so stay tuned for it!
