HEALTH DISCOVERY CORPORATION
 
 
Note A - BASIS OF PRESENTATION
 
Health Discovery Corporation (the “Company”) is a biotechnology-oriented company that has acquired patents and has patent pending applications for certain machine learning tools, primarily pattern recognition techniques using advanced mathematical algorithms to analyze large amounts of data thereby uncovering patterns that might otherwise be undetectable.  Such machine learning tools are currently in use for diagnostics and drug discovery, but are also marketed for other applications.  The Company licenses the use of its patented protected technology and may provide services to develop specific learning tools under development agreements or sell to third parties.
 
The accounting principles followed by the Company and the methods of applying these principles conform with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP).  In preparing financial statements in conformity with GAAP, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts in the financial statements.  Actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.
 
The interim financial statements included in this report are unaudited but reflect all adjustments which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position and results of operations for the interim periods presented.  All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature.  The results of operations for the three and nine month periods ended September 30,2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results of a full year’s operations and should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and footnotes included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.
 
Note B – REVENUE RECOGNITION
 
Revenue is generated through the sale or license of patented technology and processes and from services provided through development agreements.  These arrangements are generally governed by contracts that dictate responsibilities and payment terms.  The Company recognizes revenues as they are earned over the duration of a license agreement or upon the sale of any owned patent once all contractual obligations have been fulfilled.  If a license agreement has an undetermined or unlimited life, the revenue is recognized over the remaining expected life of the patents. Revenue is recognized under development agreements in the period the services are performed.
 
The Company treats the incremental direct cost of revenue arrangements, which consists principally of employee bonuses, as deferred charges and these incremental direct costs are amortized to expense using the straight-line method over the same term as the related deferred revenue recognition.
 
The licensing and development revenue recognized during the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 includes $457,088 related to the acceleration of the revenue recognition from deferred revenue because of the termination of the Abbott and Quest contracts.
 
Deferred revenue represents the unearned portion of payments received in advance for licensing and development agreements.  The Company had total unearned revenue of $2,497,851 as of September 30, 2012.  Unearned revenue of $1,024,988 is recorded as current and $1,472,863is classified as long-term.
 
Note C - NET INCOME (LOSS) PER SHARE
 
Basic Earnings Per Share (“EPS”) includes no dilution and is computed by dividing income or loss available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period.  Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution of securities that could share in the earnings or losses of the entity.
 
Due to the net loss for the three and nine month periods ending September 30, 2011 the calculation of diluted per share amounts would create an anti-dilutive result and therefore are not presented.

Note C - NET INCOME (LOSS) PER SHARE, continued
 
The following is an analysis of the basic and diluted earnings per common share computations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012:
 
   
Three months ended
September 30,2012
   
Nine months ended
September 30,2012
 
Basic:
           
Net income attributable to common shareholders
  $ 1,448,315     $ 240,237  
Basic weighted average common shares outstanding
    232,457,588       231,907,958  
Basic earnings per common share
  $ 0.006     $ 0.001  
                 
                 
Diluted:
               
Net income attributable to common shareholders
  $ 1,483,280     $ 240,237  
Basic weighted average common shares outstanding
    232,457,588       231,907,958  
                 
Effect of dilutive securities:
               
Conversion of options and warrants
    28,954       615,362  
Conversion of preferred shares to common shares
    17,340,175       -  
Diluted weighted average common shares outstanding
    249,826,717       232,523,320  
Diluted earnings per common share
  $ 0.006     $ 0.001  
 
During the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012, 6,500,000 outstanding stock options and warrants were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per common share because to do so would have an antidilutive effect.  In addition, for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012, 17,340,175 in convertible preferred stock was not included in the diluted earnings per common share calculation because to do so would have had an antidilutive effect.
 
Note D - STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION AND OTHER EQUITY BASED PAYMENTS
 
Stock-based expense included in our net loss for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2012consisted of $28,953 and $186,859 respectively for stock options granted to officers and directors.  Stock-based expense included in our net loss for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2011 consisted of a credit of $13,759 and expense of $61,018respectively.
 
As of September 30, 2012, there was approximately $173,696 of unrecognized cost related to stock option and warrant grants.  The cost is to be recognized over the remaining vesting periods that average approximately 1.5 years.  
 
As a part of the Company’s settlement with Mr. William Quirk in September 2010, Mr. Quirk exchanged his 32,527,776 warrants for three new warrants, with varying expirations and strike prices.  In addition, the Company established a credit account with a value equal to the fair market value of two million phantom shares. The value of this credit account, based on the closing price on the date prior to the date of exercise of the new warrants, will be applied toward the conversion price of all or a part of the warrants.  Two of the three warrants expired unexercised.  On September 14, 2012, Mr. Quirk gave the Company notice to exercise the last warrant using the value of the two million phantom shares.  As a result, the Company issued Mr. Quirk 473,334 shares of common stock in accordance with his settlement agreement.  The shares were issued at the market price of the Company’s stock which was $0.071.

Note F – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY
 
Series B Preferred Stock
 
During the first quarter of 2009 the Board of Directors authorized the designation of Series B Preferred Stock. The number of shares originally constituting the Series B Preferred Stock was 13,750,000; however, during the fourth quarter of 2009 the Board of Directors authorized the increase in the number of shares constituting the Series B Preferred Stock to 20,625,000. The Company sold to individual investors a total of 19,402,675 shares of Series B Preferred Stock for $1,490,015, net of associated expenses, in 2009.  The Series B Preferred Stock has not been registered under either federal or state securities laws and must be held until a registration statement covering such securities is declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission or an applicable exemption applies.
 
The Series B Preferred Stock may be converted into Common Stock of the Company at the option of the holder, without the payment of additional consideration by the holder, so long as the Company has a sufficient number of authorized shares to allow for the exercise of all of its outstanding warrants and options. The Shares of Series B Preferred Stock must be converted into Common Stock of the Company upon the demand by the Company after the fifth anniversary of the date of issuance.
 
The Series B Preferred Stock  accrues dividends at the rate of 10% of the Series B Original Issue Price per year, which shall be satisfied by the fifth anniversary of the issuance of such shares of the Series B Preferred Stock (the “Original Issue Date”) by the Company’s issuance of the number of shares of Common Stock equal to such accrued dividends divided by the average closing price of the Company’s Common Stock as reported on the Over-the-Counter-Bulletin Board or other exchange on which the Company’s Common Stock trades during the prior ten business days or by the payment of cash, as the Company may determine in its sole discretion. Dividends have been accrued for the Series B Preferred Stock in the amount of $420,580 as of September 30, 2012 and $316,064 as of December 31, 2011.
 
Subject to the limitations set forth in the Amended and Restated Articles of Amendment to Articles of Incorporation and applicable law, as long as the Series B Preferred Stock remain outstanding, the Company is required to pay the holders of the Series B Preferred Stock a special dividend equal to 15% of Company Net Revenue collected beginning with the Original Issue Date and ending on the date the Series B Preferred Stock cease to be outstanding (the “Cash Bonus”).  Company Net Revenue will include, but not be limited to, revenue derived from development fees, license fees and royalties paid to the Company and revenue collected as a result of the sale of any asset of the Company or distributions from SVM Capital, LLC (each a “Revenue Contract”), reduced by the amount of any out-of-pocket costs or expenses that are directly related to obtaining, negotiating or documenting the Revenue Contracts and the performance of such Revenue Contracts, but shall not include the proceeds of any capital infusions from the exercise of outstanding options or warrants or as a result of any capital raise undertaken by the Company.  At any time following the Original Issue Date, the Company may satisfy the special dividend right in its entirety if the aggregate payments made to the Series B Holders are equal to that value which provides an internal annual rate of return of twenty percent (20%) on the Series B Preferred Stock.  The maximum Cash Bonus to be paid each year shall be the aggregate Series B Original Issue Price, and no amounts in excess of such amount shall accrue or carry-over to subsequent years. Dividends in the amount of $370,899 and $21,018 have been accrued for Series B Preferred Stock special dividend as of September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectfully. The Company  paid $185,450, which represents half of the special dividend owed, in October 2012 and intends to pay the balance of the special dividend, which is an additional $185,450, owed to the Series B Shareholders before the end of 2012.
 
However, no dividend payment will be made if, after the payment of such dividend, the Company would not be able to pay its debts as they become due in the usual course of business, or the Company’s total assets would be less than the sum of its total liabilities plus the amount that would be needed, if the Company were to be dissolved, to satisfy the preferential rights upon the dissolution to shareholders whose preferential rights are superior to those receiving the dividend.

Note H – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
 
On October 21, 2012, Stephen D. Barnhill, M.D., resigned as an employee of the Company, effective immediately, and resigned as Chief Executive Officer of the Company, effective upon the appointment of his successor. Dr. Barnhill will continue to serve in the role of interim Chief Executive Officer until the Board of Directors identifies and appoints a successor.  Dr. Barnhill also continues to serve as a director and Chairman of the Board of the Company.
 
In connection with his resignation as an employee and his continued service as interim CEO and as a consultant to the Company, the Company entered into a consulting agreement with Dr. Barnhill. The consulting agreement includes among its provisionscompensation to Dr. Barnhill at the rate of $200 per hour for a minimum of 35 hours per week.  The Company also agreed to pay Dr. Barnhill his earned but unused vacation for 2012 upon execution of the Consulting Agreement.
 
While serving in the capacity of interim CEO, all terms of Dr. Barnhill’s employment agreement as Chairman and CEO executed on May 14, 2012 will be honored except for his base salary which will be replaced by the compensation described above.
 
In April 2012, R. Scott Tobin, a former officer of the Company, filed suit in a Georgia state court against Stephen D. Barnhill, M.D., alleging that Dr. Barnhill had made defamatory statements about Mr. Tobin.  Dr. Barnhill, through his counsel, has removed the action to federal court and has filed an answer denying Mr. Tobin’s allegations.  On October 24, 2012, Dr. Barnhill filed a third party complaint against the Company seeking indemnity from the Company for any expenses incurred by Dr. Barnhill in the defense of the Tobin lawsuit and for any damages assessed against Dr. Barnhill in the litigation. The Company is currently investigating the matter to determine if a potential liability is probable.
 
Note I – COMMITMENTS
 
As part of the employment agreement with Dr. Barnhill, which will terminate upon the appointment of a successor Chief Executive Officer, the Company shall pay Dr. Barnhill a cash bonus of $100,000 for each $0.01 per share of earnings. If this milestone is met in future periods, the Company will recognize an expense to bonus compensation. This bonus will only apply if Dr. Barnhill is acting as interim CEO at the end of period in which the Company earns $0.01 per share.  The Company believes the probability of this occurring is very low and therefore has not accrued for this expense.
 
In addition, the employment agreement contains an equity component in which Dr. Barnhill shall receive a grant of 5,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock over the course of the three year employment agreement provided certain performance milestones are met. In each future period, the Company will calculate the probability of the milestone being met and a contingent liability will be disclosed as such in the financial statements footnotes. At September 30, 2012, no accrual has been made. This equity grant will only apply if Dr. Barnhill is acting as interim CEO at the end of period in which the Company meets the performance milestone. The first opportunity for Dr. Barnhill to earn this equity grant is on the first anniversary of the employment agreement which is May 2013.  The Company does not anticipate Dr. Barnhill will be acting as interim CEO at that time and therefore has not accrued for this expense.

From time to time, the Company is subject to various claims primarily arising in the normal course of business. Although the outcome of these matters cannot be determined, the Company does not believe it is probable that any such claims will result in material costs and expenses.
 
 
Overview
 
We are a molecular diagnostics company that uses advanced mathematical techniques to analyze large amounts of data to uncover patterns that might otherwise be undetectable.  We operate primarily in the emerging field of personalized medicine where such tools are critical to scientific discovery.  Our primary business consists of licensing our intellectual property and working with prospective customers on the development of varied products that utilize pattern recognition tools.
 
We intend to continue to develop partnership and licensing relationships for test development, from expert assessment of the clinical dilemma to proper selection and procurement of high quality specimens.  Through the application of our proprietary analytical evaluation methods and state-of-the-art computational analysis to derive relevant and accurate clinical data, we intend to identify accurate biomarker and pathway discoveries, resulting in patent protection of our biomarker discoveries for future development.
 
Operational Activities
 
NeoGenomics
 
On January 6, 2012, we entered into a Master License Agreement (the “NeoGenomics License”) with NeoGenomics Laboratories, Inc. (“NeoGenomics Laboratories”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of NeoGenomics, Inc. (“NeoGenomics”).  Pursuant to the terms of the NeoGenomics License, we granted to NeoGenomics Laboratories and its affiliates an exclusive worldwide license to certain of our patents and know-how to use, develop and sell products in the fields of laboratory testing, molecular diagnostics, clinical pathology, anatomic pathology and digital image analysis (excluding non-pathology-related radiologic and photographic image analysis) relating to the development, marketing production or sale of any “Laboratory Developed Tests” or LDTs or other products used for diagnosing, ruling out, predicting a response to treatment, and/or monitoring treatment of any or all hematopoietic and solid tumor cancers excluding cancers affecting the retina and breast cancer.
 
Upon execution of the NeoGenomics License, NeoGenomics Laboratories paid us $1,000,000 in cash and NeoGenomics issued to us 1,360,000 shares of NeoGenomic’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, which had a market value of $1,945,000 using the closing price of $1.43 per share for NeoGenomic’s common stock on the OTC Bulletin Board on January 6, 2012.  In addition, the NeoGenomics License provides for milestone payments in cash or stock, based on sublicensing revenue and revenue generated from products and services developed as a result of the NeoGenomics License.  Milestone payments would be in increments of $500,000 for every $2,000,000 in GAAP revenue recognized by NeoGenomics Laboratories up to a total of $5,000,000 in potential milestone payments to the Company. After $20,000,000 in cumulative GAAP revenue has been recognized by NeoGenomics Laboratories, we will receive a royalty of (i) 6.5% (subject to adjustment under certain circumstances) on net revenue generated from all Licensed Uses except for the Cytogenetics Interpretation System and the Flow Cytometry Interpretation System and (ii) the Company will receive a royalty of 50% of net revenue (after the recoupment of certain development and commercialization costs) that NeoGenomics Laboratories derives from any sublicensing arrangements it may put in place for the Cytogenetics Interpretation System and the Flow Cytometry Interpretation System.
 
NeoGenomics Laboratories has agreed to use it best efforts to commercialize certain products within one year of the date of the license, subject to two one-year extensions per product if needed, including a “Blood Test for Prostate Cancer (using Blood Plasma)”, a “Pancreatic Cancer Test”, a “Colon Cancer Test”, a “Cytogenetics Interpretation System”, and a “Flow Cytometry Interpretation System.” If NeoGenomics Laboratories has not generated $5.0 million of net revenue from products, services and sublicensing arrangements within five years, we may, at our option, revoke the exclusivity with respect to any one or more of the initial licensed products, subject to certain conditions.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis, continued
 
Simultaneously with the signing of the NeoGenomics Master License Agreement, Dr. Maher Albitar, former Chief Medical Officer of Heath Discovery Corporation and current member of the Board of Directors and Consultant to HDC, accepted the position as Chief Medical Officer and Director of Research and Development of NeoGenomics and he was placed in charge of completing development, validation and commercialization of the Company’s product pipeline licensed to NeoGenomics.
 
NeoGenomics continues to move forward with its efforts to commercialize products using Health Discovery Corporation’s technology.Please refer to NeoGenomicsfilings and press releases for further information.
 
Blood Test for Prostate Cancer
 
NeoGenomics has initiated the development of the Blood Test for Prostate Cancer under the direction of Dr. Maher Albitar using the genes patented by HDC.
 
Cytogenetic Analysis
 
Cytogenetic analysis is the science of studying chromosomes.  Microscopic evaluation of individual chromosomes remains the first step in the evaluation of the human genome.  Cytogenetic analysis is performed on almost all patients with hematopoietic diseases (blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma) and on a significant number of patients with solid tumors. The collected data is useful for diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring of diseases.  Currently most of the analysis is performed manually by specially trained technicians.  The work is labor-intensive and subjective. Computer automation of this work could significantly reduce cost and improve the quality of the test.
 
NeoGenomics is currently working on development, validation and commercialization of this new image analysis tool for cytogenetic analysis under the direction of Dr. Maher Albitar.
 
Retinalyze
 
On February 17, 2012, the Company announced the commercial launch of Retinalytics SVMTM, to assist Ophthalmologistsand Optometrists in the Detection of Macular Degeneration. While the first Retinalytics SVMTMproductreleased focuses on age-related macular degeneration (“AMD”), the Company continues to develop a second Retinalytics SVM TM product using fundoscopic images of retinal vessels to assist eye care professionals in the detection of Alzheimer’s disease.
 
On April 17, 2012 Retinalyze, LLC granted to the National EYEPA Coalition (“EYEPA”) the exclusive right to use technologies developed by Retinalyze, LLC for optometrists provided that EYEPA use its best efforts to meet certain performance goals.  Approximately 753 doctors have signed up to use the Retinalytics SVMTM  analysis technology and 1,700 scans were sent for analysis during the 3rd Quarter for a total of 2,274 scans analyzed to date. However, the volume of images processed via the agreement has thus far been significantly less than expected and revenues to date from Retinalyze have been negligible. The Company believes the lower volume is attributed to difficulties with integration of the fundoscopic cameras to the Retinalytics SVMTM analysis program on the doctor's in-house computer systems which requires technical computer assistance and in some cases the purchase of a computer. Retinalyze, LLC continues to evaluate options to streamline this process with the goal of solving this slower than expected implementation issue thereby allowing the doctors who sign up for the program to begin using the Retinalytics SVMTM system quicker allowing for the analysis of a higher volume of scans.
 
In addition to the Optometry contract with the National EYEPA, Retinalyze, LLC has also signed agreements with several large multi-physician Ophthalmology groups in Florida to begin using the Retinalytics SVMTManalysis technology to assist physicians in the diagnosis of macular degeneration.
 
In June, 2012, Retinalyze, LLC signed a licensing agreement to incorporate Retinalytics SVMTMas a reimbursed procedure with Vision Care Direct’s Vision Plans and corresponding Independent Physician Associations (IPA) systems.

Intellectual Property Activities
 
In September 2012, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted Patent No. 8,275,723 to the Company coveringa system for providing data analysis services using a support vector machine for processing data received from a remote source.  This is the Company’s third patent covering a fee-for-service SVM analysis, with claimed uses including both medical and financial analyses.
 
In October 2012, the European Patent Office granted a patent to the Company covering asystem for providing data analysis services using a support vector machine for processing data received from a remote source.  The patent will be validated in several European countries including the UK, France, Germany, Ireland, and Switzerland.
 
Also in October 2012, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted Patent No. 8,293,461 covering a group of genes which exhibit reduced expression (down-regulated) relative to normal in the presence of prostate cancer.  The claimed biomarkers may be of particular value in tests using DNA methylation methods. Once issued, this will be the Company’s second patent covering methods for screening for prostate cancer using down-regulated genes.
 
With the recently issued patents, the Company now holds the exclusive rights to 57 issued U.S. and foreign patents covering uses of SVM and FGM technology for discovery of knowledge from large data sets.  The Company also has 23 pending U.S. and foreign patent applications covering uses of the SVM technology as well as biomarkers and diagnostic methods that have been discovered using the SVM technology.  The reduction in the total number of issued and pending patents relative to the last report (61 and 26, respectively) results from the Company’s decision to allow certain foreign patents issued and/or filed in countries that were deemed to have lower strategic value to lapse.  This in turn reduced the Company’s total expenses for patent maintenance.
 
Intel Update
 
In October 2012, the US Patent and Trademark Office issued a reexamination certificate for Intel’s U.S. Patent No. 7,685,077, which issued in 2010 with claims covering SVM-RFE.  The reexamination certificate confirms the patentability of the claims as amended during the reexamination proceedings.
 
While disappointed with issuance of the reexamination certificate, the Company draws encouragement from the fact that the Patent Office has agreed that all elements of the Company’s patented SVM-RFE method are present in the Intel claims. A fundamental principle of patent law is that the addition of one or more elements to a patented claim does not avoid infringement.  In this case, Intel merely added a standard computer operation to the Company’s SVM-RFE method.  Furthermore, possession of a patent on series of steps does not avoid infringement of a patent covering a subset of those steps.
 
In September, the Company submitted a request to the Patent Office to initiate interference proceedings once the reexamination certificate was issued.  The Patent Office has yet to act on this request.
 
Quest Agreements
 
The Company previously entered into a Development Agreement with Quest Diagnostics, Incorporated (“Quest”) and Smart Personalized Medicine, LLC (“SPM”) pursuant to which the Company and SPM agreed to assist Quest in the development of new laboratory tests for aiding in the detection of breast cancer therapies.  The Company and SPM also entered into a related Licensing Agreement with Quest.
 
In addition, the Company entered into a license agreement with Quest pursuant to which the Company granted a non-exclusive, royalty-bearing license to Quest for developing and commercializing a urine-based laboratory developed test for clinically significant prostate cancer.
 
The Company terminatedthese agreements with Quest on September 28, 2012.  The Company does not expect to receive any further payments in connection with the termination of these agreements. The Company currently intends to explore other opportunities to exploit its technology in the fields of breast cancer and prostate cancer diagnostic tests.

Due tothe termination agreement is finalized, the Company’s urine and blood test for prostate cancer isnow exclusively held by NeoGenomics as part of the NeoGenomics Master License.
 
Abbott Agreement
 
The Company previously entered into a license agreement with Abbott Molecular, Inc. pursuant to which we granted Abbott a worldwide, exclusive license for in-vitro diagnostic rights to develop and commercialize reagent test kits for the Company’s prostate cancer molecular diagnostic tests.  Under the license agreement, the Company was due to receive milestone payments and royalties.  The Company terminated its agreement with Abbott on September 28, 2012.  As a result, the Company is not entitled to any further milestone payments or royalties.
 
Internal Investigation
 
In the third quarter, the Board of Directors received allegations from a shareholder that Stephen D. Barnhill, M.D., the Company’s Chairman of the Board and Interim Chief Executive Officer, used the corporate debit card for personal expenses. Following an investigation by counsel, the Board determined that there were a limited number of expenditures that could be considered personal expenses, and that the amount and circumstances were immaterial to the Company’s financial results. Dr. Barnhill agreed to pay the Company for certain expenses, and the Board considers the matter closed.
 
In connection with the investigation, the Board also determined that the debit card was used by the Company’s Chief Executive Officer on two occasions in early 2012 to pay expenses for personal travel.  Dr. Barnhill stated that the hotels charged the Company card they had on file rather than his personal card that he presented upon check-out.  Dr. Barnhill subsequently repaid these charges to the Company in June 2012. These transactions might be deemed to constitute personal loans from the Company that violate Section 402 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

The Company did not have a similar transaction in the nine month period ended September 30, 2012.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis, continued
 
In the third quarter 2012, the Company began selling its NeoGenomics stock to fund ongoing operations. The Company’s ability to generate cash from NeoGenomics stock may be negatively impacted by various factors including the trading price and trading volume of the stock, the operational performance and investor interest in NeoGenomics and other factors beyond the Company’s control. 
 
In the longer term, the Company plans to generate additional cash from its licensing arrangement with NeoGenomics and its Retinalyze joint venture with Doctors Optimal Formula. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to fully implement its cash conservation program, sell sufficient number of NeoGenomics shares to fund ongoing operations, or generate sufficient revenues from the NeoGenomics license and the Retinalyze joint venture in an amount that would permit funding of ongoing operations. In such event, the Company plans to obtain other additional equity or financing in order to support operations.  There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to secure such funding.

Forward-Looking Statements
 
This Report contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 12E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, including or related to our future results, certain projections and business trends. Assumptions relating to forward-looking statements involve judgments with respect to, among other things, future economic, competitive and market conditions and future business decisions, all of which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately and many of which are beyond our control. When used in this Report, the words “estimate,” “project,” “intend,” “believe,” “expect” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Although we believe that assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements are reasonable, any of the assumptions could prove inaccurate, and we may not realize the results contemplated by the forward-looking statement. Management decisions are subjective in many respects and susceptible to interpretations and periodic revisions based on actual experience and business developments, the impact of which may cause us to alter our business strategy or capital expenditure plans that may, in turn, affect our results of operations. In light of the significant uncertainties inherent in the forward-looking information included in this Report, you should not regard the inclusion of such information as our representation that we will achieve any strategy, objective or other plans. The forward-looking statements contained in this Report speak only as of the date of this Report as stated on the front cover, and we have no obligation to update publicly or revise any of these forward-looking statements. These and other statements which are not historical facts are based largely on management’s current expectations and assumptions and are subject to a number of risks and uncertaintiesthat could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, among others, the failure to successfully develop a profitable business, delays in identifying customers, and the inability to retain a significant number of customers, as well as the risks and uncertainties described in “Risk Factors” section to our Annual Report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.

As of the end of the period covered by this report (the “Evaluation Date”), we carried out an evaluation regarding the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2012, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our interim Chief Executive Officer, who is also serving as our Principal Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Rule 13a-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).  Based upon this evaluation, our management concluded that, as of the Evaluation Date, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in the reports that are filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified by the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms and that our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management including our interim Chief Executive Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
 
Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures will detect or uncover every situation involving the failure of persons within the Company to disclose material information otherwise required to be set forth in the Company’s periodic reports. 
 
The Company’s management is also responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.  As of the Evaluation Date, no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting occurred that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
 
Our Annual Report on Form 10-K contains information regarding a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2011 due to an inadequate segregation of duties due to the small number of employees.
 
 
 
In April 2012, R. Scott Tobin, a former officer of the Company, filed suit in a Georgia state court against Stephen D. Barnhill, M.D., alleging that Dr. Barnhill had made defamatory statements about Mr. Tobin.  Dr. Barnhill, through his counsel, has removed the action to federal court and has filed an answer denying Mr. Tobin’s allegations.  On October 24, 2012, Dr. Barnhill filed a third party complaint against the Company seeking indemnity from the Company for any expenses incurred by Dr. Barnhill in the defense of the Tobin lawsuit and for any damages assessed against Dr. Barnhill in the litigation. The Company is currently investigating the matter to determine if a potential liability is probable.
 
 
In addition to the other information set forth in this report, you should carefully consider the risk factors discussed in Part I, “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, which could materially affect our business, financial condition or future results. The risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K are not the only risks facing our Company. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and/or operating results.
