Once again the INOVA Health System is providing free medical information to the public. At a time when treating doctors spend precious little time with their own patients, this is a welcome public service. Doug Landau was shocked and dismayed to find out that a famous local orthopedic surgeon and professional sports team doctor sees 8 patients per hour, which averages less than 7 minutes per person! The Herndon Reston area injury lawyer has attended several of these excellent programs. Landau has seen people ask questions, get valuable information and “face time” with experienced INOVA doctors and learned from other attendees questions and comments. The topics covered by the free lectures and Open House include:
- Oct. 23, 2008, 7:00 PM, (Thurs.) “Treatments for Arthritis,” Dr. William Lennen, M.D., call 703-750-8800 for more information.
