Things Doctors Can’t Do: Stay Up Late

Stethoscope Directions


I’ve got a six year old friend by the name of Wheaton who ended up in the hospital last week. He’s a delightfully precocious kid and wise beyond his years according to his mom. He also has decided he’s going to be a doctor.

Pseudo-Science New-Age Techno-Babble B.S. written RANT!


We see it in our spam. We hear it on the radio and TV. We listen to it in a variety of New Age topics from Amazing Aspirin effects to Meditation to Yoga. And it’s the same snake-oil in a different package from time immemorial.
I just got spammed with an offer to watch Cholesterol go […]

Are you Communicating?… or merely Tapping?


Elizabeth Newton, Ph.D. earned her Stanford University doctorate in 1990 by taking a group of volunteers and dividing them into two groups. “Tappers” and “Listeners.” Here’s what she had them do.

How Is Your Rx Working?


Woudn’t it be great if we simply knew what to do for any situation and just could execute a plan knowing that we’d get the results we want?
Sometimes, I think my patients are under that misconception. That, depending on what the problem is, there is one solution that will fix the problem.
