I would like to dedicate this post to some suggestions and perhaps, some superficial arguments on their behalf.  However, do not judge the suggestions merely on my supporting …

In Broward Health, Original Content by Dan Lewis3 Comments

Dr. Nabil El Sanadi died unexpectedly this past weekend in what the police reported was an apparent suicide.  It is likely that the official cause of death will be consistent with conclusions by the police.  Dr. El Sanadi recently underwent a triple bypass surgery and some notable cardiac physicians told me that patients going through this procedure sometimes experience depression. …
