Dr. Karl Jawhari, founded Core Integrative Health Texas, a practice specializing in medical services and alternative care to help those suffering from pain with problematic back and spine injuries and complaints.
A doctor’s day can never be an easy one, long hours, sad conclusions, four, yearly board meetings starting with the June board meeting and sometimes no breaks can make it very arduous. Dr Karl Jawhari a professional in both pastoral, pastoral medical care and hospital medicine has worked on several medical boards.
His day will begin by catching up with colleagues, as quickly as possible about last night’s comings and goings and things he needs to be aware of. The meeting will be short as the show must go on. The doctors first job is to check how the extremely unwell patients are doing and see what he can do for them. Then the ward rounds will begin, and the doctor will continue gathering information from the
After this usually around lunch time the doctors will all gather to discuss the individual cases and what they all recommend for the individual and why. Sometimes there is a difference of opinion based on knowledge of previous experience, but a decision is usually come to quickly as the doctors really don’t have time to waste and they must get on with their daily duties. Afternoon rounds will begin not long after this and the doctor will explain to the patients what their plan of action is, how this should help and will give the patients chance to ask questions.
A large and important part of a doctor’s day is teaching other doctors or residents as they are called, if you have ever been in hospital it is likely that you have had student doctors around your bedside, so that they can learn about all of the many ailments and illnesses and how to treat them.
Their next job is paperwork! Filling out documents, signing off treatments, giving out prescriptions and any other documents that will support that they have taken due care and diligence with all patients. No one wants an agreed order.
There will be weekly board meetings to attend to discuss any issues and any changes in practice sometimes due to an occurrence at the hospital. Various patients may be discussed as appropriate and sometimes all of that must fit into one day, who knows how many hours, and the next day? Well the majority of it will happen again, maybe in a different order and maybe a few added surprises along the way.
Dr Jawhari’s new practice however, is similar to this but the focus in on pastoral medical care, this is treating the whole body including improving diet, getting active and eliminating stress. He may even prescribe yoga or meditation and he has seen great results on the back of this. In his expert area of back pain, he finds that stress and an unhealthy lifestyle is a massive contributor. The patient’s body is not functioning optimally and this is a consequence of it not being treat as a well-oiled machine.
