Discusses Women's Health

There’s so much to be thankful for this holiday; our health, the well-being of our families and despite the results of the elections, the well-being of our country. There is also much that we can do for others. And now between Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah we have “give back Tuesday”. I kind of thought I…

Most of us watched with amazement (at least I did) during the World Cup as the soccer players used their heads and feet to make goals. (I will not discuss the Brazil team.). We have also been bombarded with information about concussions, especially in male football players. I suppose that butting the ball with one’s…

I have to admit that I’m writing this in the midst of feeling wide-awake, rested and in fabulous mountain air while vacationing with my family at Mammoth Lake. Amidst the hiking and biking, I relaxed by checking out recent medical articles on my iPad. (Yes, I know this is not a sign of great mental…

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) affects almost one percent of all children born in the United States. It can vary in severity from a complete inability to communicate and interact socially to a minimal lack of social and communicative skills, restricted interests (and even intellectual brilliance in the interest) and repetitive behaviors.

As I sat down to write this website, my iPhone and iPad both beeped with a new message. It was from the CDC with a flu alert. So I thought it was appropriate to pass this on to you. (I was going to write about an article in JAMA about the “Ingredients for successful and…

As many of us try to consider and perhaps atone for past bad behavior (sins?) this Yom Kippur I want to point out a review that appeared in the September 5 issue of The New England Medical Journal. It was an article titled “The behavioral and dietary risk factors for noncommunicable diseases”. In other words,…

Let me start this week’s website article with a blessing: Shana Tova. As many of you know this is the beginning of the Jewish New Year and I did not want to commemorate the holiday by writing this article on the actual Rosh Hashana holiday. In the spirit of holiday planning, I am writing this…

Patients often ask me whether I can predict if they will have severe hot flashes, night sweats and other symptoms of menopause when they go through this transition. My crystal ball has always been rather cloudy regarding the severity of future menopausal symptoms. What I can forecast with certainty is that we will all become…
