There will be NO treatment rendered, thus no prescriptions given. After the consent is signed, Doctor Gigi will be notified that you want a session with her. You & the doctor will schedule a mutually agreeable time when you can speak by phone. These sessions can be scheduled as a minimum of 30 minutes, with increasing increments of 15 minutes. Thus you will be asked to schedule a 30, 45, or 60 minute session, & payment will be made via credit card PRIOR to the session. As Doctor Gigi is a Family Practitioner, she has a broad scope of medical knowledge; thus feel free to speak with her about ANY medical concerns. If she cannot help you, she will likely know who can!
If you have ever Googled WEBMD for education, you realize that medical knowledge is one thing, but the application of that knowledge to the individual is the ART of medicine… & not easy for someone without true medical training. So do your Google search, then talk to Doctor Gigi for more clarity!
FAQ’s about the Scopester:
- Scopester is made of very durable plastic… in fact my first one lasted 10+ years until I finally broke it!
- Scopester also has a spring-loaded J-clip which allows you to take it on & off of your waist band while your stethoscope is loaded.
- Each Scopester comes as a set which includes a wall bracket. This bracket can be screwed into a wall (using the screws which are included) or attached to a metal locker (using the double-sided sticky tape on the back of the bracket), thus allowing you to hang your Scopester & stethoscope near your keys at home, on a wall in the office, or in a locker at work.
- Scopester also carries a stethoscope differently than Hip Clip does. When loading Scopester, you first put the bell into the body of Scopester, then you place the ear pieces in ear cups located behind the body. This provides easier flow in loading & unloading the stethoscope. Conversely, Hip Clip loads the ear pieces first, then the bell, creating a more complicated, somewhat clumsy process. You might also notice that when properly loaded in Scopester the ear pieces lay across the tubing, thus holding the tubing close to your body. The tubing of a stethoscope loaded in the Hip Clip unfortunately creates a loop that is not held near the body, thus it is more likely to get caught on objects. Hopefully you will try Scopester, as I am certain you will quickly see that it is a better product… & though it is more expensive, it is still a great value!

- I'm actually not sure if Harvard has the stethoscope holster... I know Brown carries them, but not sure about Harvard. Next time I'm there, I'll scope out the COOP boolstore and see what they have. I was working with an MD who went to Brown.... that's how i became enlightened regarding the holster...... They're such a great idea.Jody L
