Doctor's choose their specialties at the beginning of their careers … are they still happy years later?  Broken down by specialty which is cool … 

http://blog.sermo.com/2014/03/10/physicians-would-choose-their-specialty-all-over-again/
During the frenzied days of medical school, internship and residency, newly minted doctors must also decide their careers by choosing a specialty.   It can feel like running an obstacle course whil...

Are kids with ADHD over-medicated?  This post from +sermoMD stirred up a big debate on my Facebook page … what do you think?

#adhdchild  
It’s estimated that approximately five percent of children under the age of 18 have some form of ADHD, yet 15 percent of all high school-aged children take some form of ADHD medication. Have patien...

Please smile kindly to the front desk staff the next time you're at the doctor's office.  This is some of the things they have to put up with.  

http://blog.sermo.com/2014/07/16/doctor-curmudgeon-its-high-noon-at-the-front-desk/
Ah yes.  The Front Desk. A smile in the voice, a welcoming, "Doctor Curmudgeon's Office.  This is Scheherazade.  How may I help you?" Stop! Listen! It can be a War Zone. It can be a Funny Zone. It ...

Junk food vs Tobacco what's worse?  Interesting read from the World Health Organization. 

http://blog.sermo.com/2014/06/23/whats-worse-junk-food-or-tobacco/

A pretty gripping story about antibiotic use in hospitals.  This is very worth the read and there are solutions that we can implement at every level, from a patient to the government … what do you think?  

http://bit.ly/LPF7UK
The above figure is an example of a real hospital that is, right now, losing the fight with antibiotic resistance.  Think of each red bar as equivalent to a deadly car crash in your community.  Thi...

I was told by my doctor that my bladder infections are now to resistant to all antibiotics.  But I am here to testify that there is a God!  And that our ancestors, some, lived to 199 without antibiotics.  How?  They believed in their healers, and their bodies obeyed.

Are "crush-it" workouts completely incompatible with "gentler" ones … sometimes it feels like it's a fight between the liberals and the Tea Party … 

http://www.lisajohnsonfitness.com/fitness-industry-fighting-liberals-vs-tea-party/
A schism exists between the “kindness towards your body” and the “feel the burn” workouts.  People cleave avidly to only one group, there is little mixing.  Like liberals and Tea Party Members it’s best not to get them in the same room, both thinking they are far, far superior to the other.   Clearly I’m …
