Discusses Women's Health

A part of healthcare diligence is getting an eye examination. After the age of 40, many women are told by their friendly ophthalmologist “I see the beginning of cataracts”. Or worse, especially as we get older “You have cataracts.” That pronouncement does not equate with total loss of vision for most Americans who have access…

When I’m here I can’t help but compare our US healthcare system to that of Israel. Members of my family have received phenomenal care here, but rather than take their word for it I logged on to the website of The Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I knew their report would laudatory but it is, after…

As I was about to leave for Israel for my daughter’s wedding, I couldn’t help but scan the article in JAMA with the title listed above: “Feeling Old vs Being Old” and the associations between self perceived age and mortality. (Nothing makes one feel older than having offspring old enough to get married, but then…

This time next week I’ll be in Tel Aviv. I’m going for my younger daughter’s wedding and I’m quite excited. As I tried to see as many patients as possible before the end of the year, I also quickly perused the current JAMA. As usual I found a relevant article that I think we all…

Many of us have now assumed certain grandparenting duties with joy and pleasure, especially if we do can them without the duress of becoming the primary care giver … Apparently there have been very few studies on what this role does to our cognitive health.

I searched this last week’s medical journals to find an article to write about. Unfortunately there was nothing I felt would be of interest to most of my patients. My fall back is usually JAMA, but the latest issue dealt with combat casualties, care for mass casualty events, treatment of post dramatic stress disorder and…

I know this is the Fourth of July weekend and many of my patients and readers will be busy with family, barbecues and hopefully celebrating the independence of the fabulous country we live in. (And, of course, there are those wonderful sales!). But if you happen to be glancing at this website, I want to…

I just spent an amazing week at a spa near San Diego where I was able to hike, perform tai chi, yoga, dance, work out in a gym, meditate and even create art. It was a wonderful week of healing and renewal for my body and soul. Upon return, my state of “zen-hood” was altered…

As women transition from their regular periods and reproductive stage of life to irregular periods, followed by their absence and menopause, we are likely to experience symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats. And they are expected… But what we don’t expect is a decrease in our mental abilities or fine motor skills. (As…
