Discusses Women's Health

I, like everyone else, have gone digital. I read several of my medical journals on my iPhone or iPad. Every time I see a patient, my nurse and I enter her vital signs, medications, allergies, smoking status, family history, environmental data and of course, medical complaints, physical exam, diagnosis, assessment and plan on her electronic…

This week’s JAMA has a viewpoint article titled “The implications of marijuana legalization in Colorado”. I expected to read about side effects (there are many medical societies that still have great doubts about the use of marijuana, at least recreationally) and just perhaps something positive.

I know I have discussed this subject in my books and previous website articles but in this last month’s issue of the journal Menopause there was section called NAMS (North American Menopause Society) Practice Pearl that dealt with this and I thought it was a good idea to go over their “Pearl”. The term “bio…

After I returned from my fabulous trip to Israel and Jordan (I also visited Petra), I caught up on my reading and in the January 6 issue of JAMA I found a review of travelers diarrhea.

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. How much of this…

Having traveled for 20 hours to reach Addis Ababa in Ethiopia at 3 AM on January 17th…I did not know if I could gather up the energy to get in a jeep and travel 130 kilometers that same morning to see the school that our group of LA Associates of Save the Children had funded….

I just returned from Ethiopia where there is a very high level of premature birth, infant death and mortality in the first five years of life. I plan to delve into this in detail and show you pictures of the school that the LA associates of ‘Save the Children’ and I built in a small…
