Sonya Sloan, M.D. | ˈpraktək(ə)l/-OLOGY | What is it?

The study of clear explanation and practical application for medical terminology in an easy way.

In recognizing the disconnect, I found it essential to develop an approach that would allow them to understand and not be intimidated by unfamiliar vernacular.
