Rock Star of the Month: Dr. Arefin Siddique

He provides knowledgeable advice, delivers a complete diagnosis, and sets up comprehensive, individualized treatment plans; all with a winning smile! It’s impossible to find him at the office when he isn’t delivering a joke or two. Dr. Arefin Siddique is an absolute delight and his professional and kind, bed-side manner is the reason he’s our Rock Star of the Month.

We were able to catch up and chat with our pain-fighting Super doctor.

10 Things You Probably Don’t Know about Dr. Siddique/Dr. S/Man with the Stache!:

1.     Forget Siskel & Ebert, more like Siddique & Ebert. I’m a huge Bollywood movie buff!

2.     Dr. Siddique Medicine Man, I’ve traveled over 80 miles to see a patient in need of care.

3.     I’ve crossed off “Scenic Drive from Vegas to LA” off my bucket list.

4.     A companywide survey for best mustache reports that it’s a tie between Tom Selleck and me.

5.     Before Hangover, I hit the strip in Vegas with a fearsome foursome…. My wife and two kids.

6.     Sometimes laughter is the best medicine, in another life I would have been a comedian.

7.     It’s no surprise I’m passionate about my job. (Is anyone else wondering why it took so long for me to Rock Star of the Month?)

8.     Outside the office, I go by dad, daddy, or Rinku Chacha.

9.     After a one night stay at Hershey Park, my kids extended the trip because they discovered they didn’t have to make their own beds!

10.  Even with all the traffic, an often 2 + hour commute, I STILL LOVE coming to MaxWell Medical everyday.

Dr. Siddique loves spending every minute of his free time with his family. With a household filled with woman he’s gained a certain knack for shopping. But, he is certainly dedicated to his patients, he will travel distances, stay late, just to provide the best care possible. He enjoys working with people and being able to help them Do More!

Movies that make you Move!

Well the Academy awards are finally here! Which as we all know means red carpets, over the top performances, unexpected upsets and…therapeutic stretching and exercise? Okay, so maybe this is all a bit of a stretch (no pun intended).

Many today feel that going to the movies simply means sitting back, relaxing, grabbing a huge bucket of butter laden popcorn, and enjoying the show. But not us! Sure there’s nothing wrong with those things, but MaxWell has Oscars on the brain! And that means that the ever diligent staff at MaxWell Medical, whose goal is to always increase your health and wellness, has been inspired by this year’s nominees for Best Picture to help you out of your seat, move around, and also stay active.

How you may ask? Well this week, once per day, we will be posting a best picture inspired exercise/stretch that you can do almost anywhere, even in the office or at home. Don’t panic though, we promise they are quick and easy to do, and you will feel great afterwards.

So with that in mind the Nominees for Best Picture that we based an exercise on are!…

1.      The Social Network
2.      Black Swan
3.      127 Hours
4.      The Kings Speech
5.      The Fighter

Now keep in mind these techniques may not make you laugh or cry like that all time favorite movie of yours.  But at the end of the day spending a few extra minutes on exercises like these will help you stay healthy, and feel your best. And at MaxWell we feel there is no Award better than that.
