As Winter Fades to Warmth

There is such beauty that arises when we simply smile at our children’s faces. Their roaring belly laughs, their absolute delight in catching snowflakes on their tongues on an early February afternoon, and their joyful...

Yes, Your Doctor Was a Sorority Girl

Patients often comment on my attire other than my white coat, particularly my impractical footwear, until I finally broke down and purchased Danskos to avoid being called out for my truthful impracticality. It is amazing...

Have you ever left your doctor’s office feeling like you have way more questions than what you came in with that day? Sometimes I, as a doctor, end up feeling that same way after a patient visit, especially if the patient has misinformation I try to help guide. There’s a lot of bad advice online that often seems legitimate, so helpful and easy-to-use sources have become that much more important these days. This app is AWESOME for showing you the risks of disease based on YOUR specific factors such as age, gender, ethnicity, and past medical history. I love being able to put this information into a risk calculator so that during our visit, I’m not just telling a patient they have high cholesterol and need a medicine . . . I’m able to explain why they specifically need it based on a variety of factors, as well as explain what their risks are and what our goals are based on this. This is a fantastic app that encourages active communication between a doctor and a patient.

Pros

Easy to use Provides direction

Cons

Can be difficult for patients to navigate
