    Since we're all "Doctors" what is the proper term for a "Dry Vagina"?

    Postmenopausal atrophic vaginitis. N95.2 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used

    Is that a reimbursable code in optometric practice?

    I've got to admit Art is a smart guy. He retires to Arizona then gets bored and decides to get back into a practice.

    He looks around and sees that the average person is a white hair on Medicare and they are living in a place with like 6% humidity. Wow, what a wonderful place for a Dry Eye Center of Excellence.

    Awesome move.

    I guess if you can chart that you met the exam criteria.

    No, no, no...and we wonder why there is not more female participation here?

    That aside; Dr. Hallock, I often espouse adapt or die. This applies to communication with the patient as much as evolving the practice with technology.

    Hmmm, it is sort of like expanding your case history for the disc at risk and inquiring about erectile dysfunction and the little blue pill.
