    Lacy Lane: A Functional Blood Work Specialist’s Perspective on Healthcare

    Lacy Lane: A Functional Blood Work Specialist’s Perspective on Healthcare

    It’s a functional blood work specialist’s perspective on healthcare from Lacy Lane on this episode of the Perspectives on Healthcare podcast with Rob Oliver. Lacy is based in Florida and is a member of the Millennial Generation (Generation Y.) I will admit that I had not heard of a functional blood work specialist before meeting with Lacy Lane. Her responses were educational, insightful and enlightening.

    We love to hear from our listeners. Please leave a review of the Perspectives on Healthcare podcast on whichever platform you enjoy listening to us.

    Here are 3 things that stood out as Lacy Lane gave us a functional blood work specialist’s perspective on healthcare:


    Communication is essential for good health. That includes communication within the body and with medical professionals.
    Quality healthcare must be patient centered. By spending a little more time with patients, practitioners may develop a comprehensive understanding of the patient’s health struggles.
    Her OB/GYN was an excellent example of quality healthcare. By taking the time to understand Lacy’s medical history, the doctor made critical decisions that saved her life during pregnancy complications.

    Jean Grover: A Patient’s Perspective on Healthcare

This interview is the 60th in the patient’s perspective interview Marathon series. Jean is from Rochester New York. As a person with a disability, she brings a unique background as a survivor of thalidomide. Her insights into healthcare are spot on.

    Jim Batterton: A Patient’s Perspective on Healthcare

    Jim Batterton: A Patient’s Perspective on Healthcare

    Jim Batterton gives us a patient’s perspective on healthcare in this episode of the Perspectives on Healthcare podcast with Rob Oliver. Jim is located in Connecticut. You may recognize his last name because his wife joined the interview marathon as well. This is episode 176 of the podcast and Jim is the 59th interview in the patient’s perspective marathon.

    If you are enjoying these interviews, we would value a review on whatever platform you listen to Perspectives on Healthcare.

    Here are 3 things that stood out as Jim Batterton gave us a patient’s perspective on healthcare:


    The cost of healthcare services needs to be more transparent. There is no upfront pricing information for healthcare as opposed to other consumer services.
    There needs to be a better system for coordinating and connecting care providers. Information needs to be easily shared across a variety of healthcare settings.
    Creating a more consumer friendly healthcare system involves valuing not just the practitioners time but the patient’s time as well. Both need to be valued equally.

    Michelle May: A Family Physician’s Perspective on Healthcare

    Michelle May: A Family Physician’s Perspective on Healthcare

    Michelle May gives us a family physician’s perspective on healthcare on this episode of the Perspectives on Healthcare Podcast. Michelle is a member of the baby Boomer generation. She is located in Arizona. She is the CEO of a company called Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Programs and Trainings. Michelle May has personal experience and a professional understanding of our eating habits and the impact they have on our health.

    Do you follow us on social media? Check the links below to connect and make sure that you are up-to-date on everything going on with Rob Oliver and the Perspectives on Healthcare Podcast.

    Here are 3 interesting points that Michelle made while sharing a family physician’s perspective on healthcare:


    Quality healthcare looks at the whole person’s well-being rather than focusing solely on metrics like weight or BMI.
    There needs to be caution within the medical community about using weight as a primary indicator of health.
    Medical professionals can have better conversations with their patients by asking open-ended questions, avoiding assumptions based on body size, and providing support tailored to the individual needs of the patient.

    Here is the link to the article that she mentioned during the interview:


    Mauldin, K., May, M., Clifford, D. (2022). The consequences of a weight‐centric approach to healthcare: A case for a paradigm shift in how clinicians address body weight. Nutrition in Clinical Practice. https://doi.org/10.1002/ncp.10885
