Dear visitors, welcome!

Thank you for taking the time to visit our writer’s web page and blog, which hopefully will provide you with some useful information. My name is Dr. Mario O. Laplume and I would like to start a conversation with you about some pressing social and professional issues.
First of all I am deeply concerned about the lack of social justice in the delivery points of preventive and clinical care for the most vulnerable segments of our communities. My Columbia University doctoral thesis is based on the delivery of integrated and efficient care to the population of the “Regione Veneto” of Italy and I believe that we must strive to equalize care access, not only in affluent societies, but in the rest of the planet as well.
Secondly I am an assiduous student of Wellness interventions and Alternative Medicine, as we must examine some novel methods of Psycho-physical integration to cure pathological diseases. The biological model of Medicine that blossomed in developed nations in the start of the 20th century has brought us great advances in the cure and prevention of terrible diseases. As a physician I am proud of the generous service we have been providing our communities but I also believe that we must examine some alternative methods that could complement the traditional clinical protocols for care.
Finally I would like to discuss the issue of “emotional frustration” in our hyper-connected societies. As a practicing physician, I have witnessed the great frustration of women, with their milieu and with society at large, as their emotional concerns are not properly heard, let alone addressed, by us. It has prodded me to write a novel series, “Madame D.C.” to strive to transmit their woes; I invite you to peruse a few pages of “Book I -Three voyages”, which I enclosed in a separate section, and post your comments on them. If our dear mothers, sisters, spouses and daughters are feeling increasingly distressed we cannot possibly expect to have a healthy family and civic life. I would like to thank my daughter Noel Marie for helping me with this page.
“Walker, there is no road, you make one on the go.” The Spanish poet Antonio Machado has summarized the purpose of these writing endeavors. Let’s start this adventurous journey, hoping to find some answers and surely more questions along the way, in the good company of you all, our friends.

    1. Thanks for the compliment. Please check the “list of contents” in the Menu and you will find some interesting articles in my series called “Alternative Medicine.”

  1. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Mario O. Laplume for being a mentor in my professional life, as well as being truly a wonderful person, in general. I am lucky to have had the chance to shadow such a brilliant man as yourself. You are admired by those of your profession and expertise. I will forever be grateful for your support during difficult times and what a significant person you have been in my life. I attest the genuine person, loyal and resourceful professional that Dr. Mario Laplume is. Through the years he displayed and demonstrated respect for hard work and acknowledged all skills acquired by the same.

    1. Dear Carrol: good morning and thank you very much for such an exuberant paean to my work, which I think is a little bit exaggerated. We did have a good time working together and it was a pleasure to mentor such a dedicated and proficient young woman through some difficult times. I wish you all the very best in your present career; please keep reading and commenting our humble output. Te mando un beso grande. Hasta la proxima.

  2. It is interesting that more male doctors do not have the insight and comfort to discuss this issue that has been around for years. Thank you for taking this on. I will enjoy reading more and seeing what others have to say. Keep pressing the issues. Eva

    1. Good morning and Happy Mother’s day Eva. Unfortunately most physicians are not properly trained in Psycho-physical integration of clinical protocols for diagnosis, care and prevention. They solely rely on a biological-mechanical approach that oftentimes dismisses most of the florid complaints of the feminine gender as just “something in their heads.” You’ve been there before, haven’t you? This is extremely personal because my dear mother Gladys (rest in peace) bumped from medical office into the the next one when her personal problems became unmanageable and she needed help. I was there. I know what I am talking about. Physicians just wanted to prescribe her anti-anxiety and sometimes even anti-psychotic drugs. Thank God she finally came through with the help and patience of us, her family. Please read my upcoming blog on “emotional frustration” because I think you will like it. There are strong socio-economic reasons that explain this “distraction” of the medical corps when treating feminine frustrations. Thank you for not leaving me alone in this endeavor. I will plough on! A kiss. Ciao. Dr. Laplume

    2. Good morning, Happy Sunday, Happy Mother’s day, Eva. Thank you very much for your nice words of encouragement. This issue has been around for years but has been deliberately ignored by the medical corps, too busy in turning over patients in their overcrowded practices and filling endless paperwork for the Payors. This is very personal as my dear mother Gladys (rest in peace) was misdiagnosed and mistreated when her personal problems pushed her to seek medical help. I know. I was there. I owe it to her and all the dear women in my life (including you now) to keep discussing this critical issue. Thank you for not leaving me alone. a big kiss. Ciao.
