BALTIMORE, MD – Let’s face it: constipation is evil.  As healthcare providers, there is nothing more crucial than identifying constipation in a patient between the hours of 10 PM and 6 AM when he or she is likely comfortably sleeping.  For this reason, the American Academy of Constipation (AAC) updated their Code Constipation guidelines for 2016 to ensure that a patient with constipation is appropriately diagnosed, treated, and, if needed, sent to hospice.

    First there was Dr. 01, the first robot physician, created to withstand toxic levels of burnout in an increasingly mechanistic and impossibly demanding healthcare field. Dr. 99 builds upon the advances of its ninety-eight predecessors by phasing out all human emotion, innovation, and creativity completely, and focusing solely on pre-programmed protocols and volume-based productivity. In its spare time, Dr. 99 enjoys writing for Gomerblog and listening to Taylor Swift.
