Mini Bio

I grew up in Montebello, California, second generation Angeleno. My great grandparents emigrated from Germany in the 1800s. I represented California in "The Federation for Peace" conference in South Korea & in India. I have Cubital tunnel syndrome, and after 2 surgeries it worsens, so please forgive numb hands and typos.;-) Graduated Summa Cum Laude from California State University in 1996. I work part time in a mortuary. Gallows humor is a survival mode often used to lighten the load of the work that we do.

In my work as a Hospice Minister, I am often unavailable for several days at a time. Please take this into consideration when attempting to place a time limit on any request for a response.
In March of 2013, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. After a partial Mastectomy I am still battling due to the HER2/neu. Chemo Brain Post-chemotherapy cognitive impairment (VERY misleading Title!) is definitely NOT fun!

What is the difference between God and doctors? God doesn't think he is a doctor.

I am continuously learning the intricacies of Wikipedia, NOTHING should be this complicated; trolls are the epitome of evil. Baseless accusations still stun me. You are NOT paranoid if they are REALLY out to get you![1]

In any dispute the intensity of feeling is inversely proportional to the value of the stakes at issue. Sayre's law
Please feel free to shorten my name to "Doc" not DOS. UGH. That is so PC and I am so MAC! ;-) TY Pablo!
In deference to Doc #1 please make that Doc #2 ;-) And Yes, I do have a Doctorate.

This user supports the fight against Ovarian cancer.
IF ONLY I HAD KNOWN...

My other personal project is to educate people about Ovarian Cancer It Whispers - so listen carefully . . . Watch for -

  • Pelvic or abdominal pain or discomfort;
  • vague but persistent gastrointestinal upsets such as gas, nausea, and indigestion;
  • frequency and/or urgency of urination in the absence of an infection;
  • unexplained weight gain or weight loss;
  • pelvic and/or abdominal swelling, bloating and/or feeling of fullness;
  • ongoing unusual fatigue; Do NOT chalk it up to depression!
  • unexplained changes in bowel habits.
  • If symptoms persist for more than 2 weeks, ask your doctor for a combination pelvic/rectal exam and
and trans-vaginal ultrasound. A CA-125 blood test is not infallible. More on new test as I find it.

A pap test WILL NOT detect ovarian cancer.
