4 Reasons You Might Be Losing Your Hair

Posted by Sarah Cohen on Jul 25, 2017 8:31:08 AM

If there is one part of my body I wouldn’t change, it’s my hair. I love the thickness, the length, the color — you should have seen the look I gave a hairdresser once for suggesting dying sections of it blonde. No, thank you! Even the occasional gray hair can’t burst my bubble. I love these locks.

Heading home for the holidays? Make sure your body is ready!

Posted by Sarah Cohen on Nov 29, 2016 9:11:45 AM

When I think of the holiday season, one of my first thoughts is simply family. I grew up in a small Indiana town right outside of Chicago, and my parents, sisters, and adorable nephew are all still in the area. It’s a no-brainer that I will be heading there — home — for the holidays.

It’s fairly easy to pick up on possible health ailments in our spouses: Just keep your eyes and ears open. However, it’s much harder to broach the topic of seeing a doctor.

Brian Jones, MD, with Methodist Family Health Center – Cedar Hill East has seen hundreds of patients — some who were more than willing to make the appointment and others who had to be coaxed, bribed, or practically dragged into the physician’s office.  However they may have ended up there, the important thing was that they did.
