Shaan Patel

As I begin my last year of medical school and reflect on my journey thus far, I have found that the most valuable experience has been third year clinical rotations at the LAC+USC Medical Center, where I rotated through all of the core services of medicine in the hopes of selecting a specialty that was the right fit for me.

The Next Prescription -- Primal Stress

Paul Spector, M.D. | Posted 08.18.2016 | Healthy Living
Paul Spector, M.D.

The moral of this story lies in the perverse idea that the masters of disease have the prescription for health. Doctors have no real conception of health beyond the absence of illness. No one would go to an auto body shop for advice on how to keep a car in good running condition.

I agree that ineffective surgeries should not be performed. Unfortunately, people tend to have a reductionist mentality and want to see things as good or bad. Research data can tell us that, but all too often the data tells us something in between.

For me, medicine is a double-edged word; while it hurls such obscure images of cold-bloodedness towards my face, it also motivates me to grow, to observe, and to learn so that I may be able to positively contribute--even if to an infinitesimal extent--toward overcoming this wrongdoing someway, somehow, someday.

I'm A Dentist. We Have To Talk About Flossing.

Let's be clear about one thing. No study, and certainly no dentist, would ever claim or even imply that flossing is harmful. You would be hard-pressed to find a study that concludes a person's health is improved by eliminating flossing from her oral health routine.

The good news about my research and confirmation from other women is that it means I wasn't overreacting. The bad news is that the more times women have to insist those issues aren't the problem, the longer everyone is suffering -- and the faster a fatal disaster could occur.

When Doctors Have Time to Care

Helane Fronek, M.D. | Posted 06.15.2016 | HuffPost Home
Helane Fronek, M.D.

We need a healthcare system that cares for our health and doesn't simply offer medicines or procedures for our symptoms. Doctors must have the time to care for us and we patients must demand that they be given this time. It's up to all of us to speak up so that, together, we can restore the health of our healthcare system.
