A company providing online access to doctors for a fee has expanded into Nova Scotia and the body regulating the practice of medicine in the province has concerns with the practice. "I think it's dangerous territory," says Dr. Gus Grant, CEO and registrar of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Nova Scotia. Maple provides diagnoses and prescriptions over a video call. It expanded into Nova Scotia around six months ago and now has five doctors working here.
After a decade working as an anesthesiologist, Dr. Rosario Hernandez decided to focus on treating patients with chronic pain. For six months, she worked in the operating room two days a week — work for which she was paid — and spent three days a week getting experience in the pain clinic, for which she was not paid. For Hernandez, it was a choice that made sense because of her interest in the field. "I was investing in what I wanted to do in the future," she says.
A woman who has been a patient at the Dartmouth General pain clinic for about a decade says she has nowhere to go once the clinic closes at the end of the year and she runs out of medication. Dawn Rae Downtown was diagnosed with a rare inflammatory arthritis when she was 39 years old. "It caused me a great deal of pain. I was unable to stand, to walk, to sit, to lie down, and to sleep, so that's just about everything that I was unable to do," she said. She said Dr.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
