Why People Depend On Final Needs Plans

The death of a loved one can be an accident or can follow after a lengthy illness, but no matter how it happens, those left behind are rarely emotionally prepared. The same can be said about their finances. When funeral expenses can exceed $10, 000, people are rarely prepared to cover the cost of a funeral.

Dr. Jerry Tenenbaum: Upset Patients, Destroyed Lives?

There are some things we all have come to expect when we visit the doctor’s office. We expect that our medical needs, whatever they are, will be taken seriously and that our ills, whatever their magnitude, will be treated with diligent medical scrutiny.

One of most important issues in the medical care today is the need to ensure that every patient gets professional treatment. Unfortunately, that won't be possible until medical practitioners, and particularly doctors who are entrusted with patient's lives, commit to it. When a doctor registers years and several cases of misdiagnosis, non-professional conduct and patient abuse/mistreatment, it should be a sign of an ending career if not time for him/her to change to the better. The situation ....

Dr. Jerry Tenenbaum: Patients Upset - Poor Treatment Cited

Why are Dr. Tenenbaum’s patients so upset? Why is it that a majority of them refuse to recommend him to others? What is going on?

There seem to be two extremes, though unequally divided, the bulk being against him.
