HIPPA??????

I keep getting phone calls from someone who claims "their records indicate that I have a knee problem."

How the hell do they know this? I though HIPPA prohibited the release of medical records to 3rd parties.

I'm done

Many of us over 40 have knee problems - Paul - you are a walking problem ; )

Maybe less HIPPA and more shotgun approach to targets of opportunity

That's what I would think. What are the chances a guy over 50 has knee problems? Probably about 80%

You probably bought a brace or something online and the vendor sold the info....

Bry, I didn't. The only knee brace I have is from my Ortho Doc so I'm not sure where they got the info. I tend to agree with the other post and Jeanne. Probably just a shotgun approach.

I'm done

Along the same lines as getting mail / flyers / inserts for services you didn't request. Their approach is to throw as much crap out and see where it sticks...and they try to make a sale!

I am a legend in my own mind!

Arrow pain in knees ugh

been experiencing allot lately due to installing a new floor
even while wearing knee pads. I have to heat up our Bed buddies
140 seconds in the microwave for dry heat
(sold via walmart -rice filled sacks with rope handles)
and sit with them on each knee to fight off the pain.

that and arthritis rub by dr fred summit helps too
