About FrankB-1
Joined January 2020
I am a physician with a private practice in internal medicine, although my true passion is music. I have been a guitar player and builder for over 50 years. Teaching guitar helped pay for my education.

As a musician, my educational background is "science-heavy". I began with a bachelor's degree in chemistry. After graduating I decided to move into the medical space by doing a research fellowship in biomedical engineering with a specialty in artificial internal organs. My next step was a doctorate in medicine with specialty training in internal medicine. I completed my education with a masters degree in healthcare informatics.

I am eager to begin my career in affiliate marketing. The fantastic community and learning resources at WA make it an awesome place to begin!

Nice goals Frank,

These are going to take you to a whole new level of being focused, motivated, and dedicated to what you are learning here at WA.

As you work through the training lessons, make sure to ask questions when you have them, and take action on what you are learning. You have a full community of friendly people behind you!

Your profile is outstanding. I adore the medical field. In fact, one of dream jobs would be a medical investigator. I love, like Sherlock Holmes, to "figure it out." There are of things that go unnoticed in the medical field; new and emerging strains of this and that, and other concerning trends that look wayward and challenging.

I am having an issue like with local physicians. I come from a large city: Los Angeles and Las Vegas, where I enjoyed a wonderful career in a large radiology facility as a transcriptionist. We had movie stars who preferred our faciliity because in 1992, images on the radiology reports were pioneered by our company and MS Windows came along to help. Since then, I moved to the midwest, where I find finding a good physician challenging.

I am glad to meet you. In fact, I was actually seeking the advice of an internal medicine physician for advice about my issue. I plan to go out-of-state where possibly understanding and opportunity to receive better medical will be available.

Enjoy the rest of your week doctor. :) And stay cool. But I know you know that. Thank you for the follow. I appreciate it.

Hi, Denise
Nice to meet you.
I hope you get your medical issues sorted out.
It looks like the weather in RI will start to cool down, beginning tomorrow!
Stay Well,

How fortunate! It is extremely humid here today; one minute without the AC is like an oven. :) I'll get it all straightened out; there are great facilities a few hours away. Take care doctor, and enjoy the cooling. :) Send some vibes my way; maybe the weather will get the hint. :)

Frank at Jays class, you said Hi to me, and I was saying Hi back and then reception of class quit working for me, so I didn't mean to cut you off, and just stopping by to apologize about that. I couldn't get back into class either. But , next day I can see the replay. Crazy thing, my friend! Please forgive me.

Hi, Suzy

No worries, that’s absolutely fine! 😊
I hate it when that happens but the webinar live chat seems to have improved quite a bit on the new platform, in terms of freezing.

I got a new laptop and that probably helped, as well. If I wrote over 3000 words in the block editor and added some images things really slowed down.

I got about 10 years out of my old MacBook so I don’t really have anything to complain about.

Have a great day and I hope to see you this Friday at the next webinar. 👍

Windows is constantly having problems; I would like to try a Mac. I hear they have a greatly reduced platform of errors and intrusions, and MS seems to constantly have issues of one kind or another. You are not the first person I have heard state that a MacBook is the way to go. I guess I'll check it out since you have no worries with that. :)

Thanks!

You too Frank have a great 4th of July, and the su part of Jeff Brown's Frisatsu. ( Friday, Saurday, Sunday).

Hey, I read your how to keep your guitar safe, it was an excellent article, with lot's of great information. I don't have a guitar any more, my brother stole it. Bet you'd make a better brother, you have qualities like a moral compass, and desire to improve yourself, and have already acquired knowledge others would pass on, because it would be too difficult for them.
Thank you Frank !

Wow, reminds me of this person in my home town of used to be East coast Hippie magnet, stunningly beautiful Boulder, Colorado who actually changed her name to this: "I am you". Are you laughing, i'm sure her name was a conversation starter. We should PM.

Thanks, Suzay!

I'm so glad you liked my article. You should get another guitar, eventually, if you enjoy playing. It doesn't have to be an expensive one.

I built the guitar website after I made my heath care site so I would be more experienced. The health care site will be more for public service than profit. Imagine being able to help people in some small way all over the world!

When I retire, I will have more time to work on both sites, but I'm really looking forward to writing about guitars and everything related to them!

That's awesome Frank!
Not enough room for a guitar. Have negative space,but a roof over my head has been a blessing, as I live in tiny travel trailer.
Big refrigerator outside,this is Arizona.
I was looking at Kamaka ukulele. Because had Kamaka in the family. So beautiful the sound, and there are some great new ones in the line. It's just sounds like Hawaii.
Probably have to get something cheaper, but can learn scales on it, etc. Ukes are party animals!

So many great artists.
Now old time, like us, Brother Nolan is a Hoot. So funny! On youtube. Friend of my friend. You just don't know who may show up like at a baby luau,birthday luau, Las Vegas reunion, etc.

I lived on Big Island, Hawaii, Hawaii. Hawaii county, state of Hawaii.
i also lived in Hawaii almost 15 years, all those gorgeous songs and open tunings, Hawaii in your soul.

Nice talking with you!

Hi Frank. Just read Keisha's post. I hope you know how much your dedication to your work is appreciated by all who's lives you touch. Hopefully, we are nearing the end of this pandemic and one day all this will be a distant memory.

Well done for all you do and thank you.

Hi Anne,

I really appreciate that!

I love helping people, regardless of what illness they might have.

Once we get everyone vaccinated and immune then this will finally be behind us. There are many things we could have done differently to help limit the magnitude of suffering and death but the most important thing is to continue to move forward in a positive way.

My pleasure to meet and follow you,
Frank

Hi Dr. Frank B, following you back. Fancy, you a doctor. During back in my younger days before my severe deafness, I was in nursing focusing on geriatric care. Glad you are on here. I can still hear some music, if high in bass and alto but not soprano. Im too deaf to hear high notes. I can hear some instruments but wouldn't be able to tell the difference with high frequency notes.

Hi Brenda,
Thank you for following me.
Nurses are special people!
Have you looked into a cochlear implant?
Frank
Reply
BrendaMZ Premium
No, I am fourth generation of deafness in my family. We all use sign language, American Sign Language (ASL). I am older now and have other medical issues, like MS, etc. In fact, a cochlear implant will only work the same as my hearing aids, just to help with sounds thats it. Seems like a waste for me and my family. We all use hand sign language. I belong to the Deaf community and we found there is no real need for a cochlear implant. Nah, not interested in Borg technology, no thank you. Besides the surgery would mess with my brain. Thanks for thinking of it but like most doctors, your saying that is not too surprising. Genetic deafness has no cure, cure is ASL. Or other sign language depending on which country Deaf people are from.

FrankB-1 Premium Plus
Good, it sounds like you are getting along just fine with ASL. There are some pretty good treatments for MS these days and, as you know, PT can be very beneficial.
God Bless You & Stay Safe!

The worse part is the fatigue. Mine is Progressive so all other treatments do not work. I have a SPC, and using an electric heavy duty wheelchair. I live in the most unique place, an assisted living for the Deaf and DeafBlind, the only one ☝️ in the country of USA. I am exactly where I need to be. All staff here are Deaf, even the Director is Deaf. Residents here are all senior citizens me included. My Mom also Deaf is 80 years old and in great health, she is still able to live by herself. Of course, we all are keeping ourselves safe and healthy. Mask up, social distancing and wash hands, avoid large crowds, etc, we have Zoom or FaceTime group, fun this way. Hope you and your staff and patients are staying healthy in this pandemic.

Hi Brenda,

I’m glad you have specialized living arrangements, hopefully COVID free. Get the flu shot and pneumonia vaccines (Pneumovax, or Prevnar depending on your situation).

The numbers are really increasing quickly in RI, like other parts of the country. I’m working about 10 to 12 hours a day in my office and trying to help out in the hospital I am on staff at as well as the field hospitals, which started accepting COVID pts last week.

We’re trying to save as many lives as possible!😊 we just start using monoclonal antibodies last week to try to keep hospital admissions down.

Through all this I’m working as a biomedical engineering and heath care informatics consultant, doing my training and writing content at WA, and trying to spend as much time as possible with my excellent wife of almost 25 years!

I must say, I’m loving the whole WA experience, especially learning from wonderful and knowledgeable people like you! I have a heath niche site but when I learn more and have more time I’ll launch my guitar site, which really why I started at WA.

Frank
