Joseph Alisky, MD, PhD

Dr. Alisky's most recent research paper, "Spelenic artery infusion of IL-2 might allow treatment of melanoma and renal cell cancer with less side effects and greater efficacy," was published in the International Journal of Cancer Therapy and Oncology in February.

"I've always been interested in clinical research," he says. "And this publication just goes to show that you can have a full-time practice seeing patients with IPC/Senior Care and pursue outside interests, as well."

Influenza: A Tutorial
How to stay healthy this flu season
 
iStock 000016466354 SmallInfluenza, also commonly known as "flu," is a widespread viral infection that has afflicted mankind for thousands of years. In fact, Hippocrates described the symptoms of flu among his people more than 2,400 years ago. Different strains of flu affect people around the globe, and "pandemics" such as the Swine Flu (H1N1) can occur when there's a significant change (called an antigenic drift) in the virus. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), between 5-20% of the US population suffers from seasonal influenza each year, resulting in about 200,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths and impacting our economy to the tune of about $10 billion in lost productivity and treatment costs. Three segments of our population are at greater risk of contracting influenza, including children less than 2 years old, adults over the age of 65, and anyone with a chronic medical condition (such as diabetes or heart disease) or compromised immune system.

Your Food and Your Health

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food,” said Hippocrates, who some call the father of medicine, in about 400 BC. Today in 2014, we understand without a doubt that he was correct. What we eat really does matter. The food choices we make and the way we think about food have a profound influence on our health, our mood, and our longevity. Food truly has the power to either harm or heal our bodies. The patients who come into my office have a wide variety of conditions and concerns. More often than not, lifestyle modifications such as getting more exercise and eating a more nutritious diet can contribute to making them feel better and genuinely be healthier long term.

The Quick Fix Never Lasts

If you’re like countless other Americans, you probably wish there were an easy way to maintain a healthy body weight. This is a struggle that so many of us face year after year and, it seems to be true that, the older we get the more difficult it is. Some people were slim and fit in their younger years and have become frustrated by their inability to stay that way as they age. Some have carried extra weight throughout their lives and have experienced related health problems, especially as they’ve grown older. And others have battled their weight, watching the numbers on the scale go up and down like a rollercoaster throughout their adult lives – jumping on every fad diet bandwagon only to fall back off in humiliation and defeat each and every time.

E-cigarettes: Maybe a lesser evil, but an evil nonetheless
 

iStock 000018534648Small

We’ve been getting many questions from our patients lately about electronic cigarettes. Specifically, they’re wondering whether e-cigarettes are a safe alternative to traditional cigarettes, and if using them is a good step toward quitting smoking. My personal opinion is that, when someone wants to quit smoking, we should pursue a permanent fix. I always tell my patients that the best way to quit smoking—and this is evidence-based—is to just quit, “cold turkey.” So, of course, e-cigarettes don’t go along with my philosophy! But let’s take a look at what they are and what we know about them.

I Have a "Gut Feeling..." Keys to Digestive Health

Every day we discover more about the important role the digestive system plays in our overall health and well-being. Our “guts” can tell us a lot about what’s happening in our bodies. Believe it or not, “gut” is an actual scientific term that refers to the alimentary canal, or the tube through which our food is delivered through the digestive organs. It is also referred to as the gastrointestinal (or “GI”) tract and includes the route from mouth to anus—input through output!

Learning to go with the flow and be prepared for anything can help you get through the short and sometimes inclement days while enjoying the pleasant ones when they arrive.

Senior Care of Colorado Acquired by IPC Healthcare, Inc.

After many months of conversation, investigation and deliberation, Senior Care of Colorado, PC, was acquired by IPC Healthcare, Inc. on December 1, 2010.

Senior Care of Colorado has not changed and, most importantly, neither has the high-quality, personalized care you’ve come to expect from us. In fact, this partnership between Senior Care and IPC completes the spectrum of care. Our new organization cares for patients in our clinics, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and patients’ homes, as well as in the hospital. We’ve melded Senior Care’s expertise in geriatrics with IPC’s expertise in hospital medicine to deliver the very best to our patients.

IPC Healthcare currently has over 1,700 providers serving in 700+ facilities in 22 states. Economies of scale and management expertise, coupled with IPC’s solid financial position and IT infrastructure, have allowed us to continue to grow and expand to care for seniors throughout Colorado.

IPC-logo_copy

As many of you know, Donald Murphy, MD, and Michael Wasserman, MD, founded the practice together in 2001. Over the years, Senior Care has learned a lot, grown a lot, and had the great privilege of serving tens of thousands of seniors throughout the Denver metro area and beyond. Today, Dr. Murphy continues in his management role as Practice Group Leader and spends half of his time seeing patients. Dr. Wasserman focuses his time and energy on patient care and education, while Dr. Murphy will continue in his management role as Practice Group Leader and spend half of his time seeing patients.

Senior Care of Colorado greatly values our relationships with you and we look forward to continuing to care for your medical needs in the future.
