How urologists can be more sensitive to male patients

Most urology practices in the United States do not employ male nurses or assistants, even in larger cities. This is a serious problem because approximately 75 percent of urology patients are male. Often people wrongly assume that men don’t care about their modesty. In many cases, this is simply not true. Societal norms say men […] Find jobs at Careers by KevinMD.com. Search thousands...

The evolution of the stethoscope

The stethoscope. Nothings says “I’m a doctor” more than the stethoscope in a pocket or draped around the neck. Forty-five years ago when I got my first one, a gift from my physician-father, the former was more common.

Meet the physician who became a financial advisor

If you can’t beat ’em, join them (and make it better).  Am I right?  This was some of the sentiment I felt as I registered with FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) to take the Series 65 exam.  Passing this exam will allow me to register in my state as an Independent Advisory Representative (IAR) and […] Find jobs at Careers by KevinMD.com. Search thousands of physician, ...

What administrators don’t understand about urgent care centers

Embrace the teamwork involved in becoming a physician

It’s Sunday, and the clock is approaching 8 p.m. Every computer in our team room is still on, and the sound of typing is filling the small space. A spread of snacks, interspersed between stethoscopes and stacks of faxed records, is ignored for the time being.

Why physicians are attracted to real estate investments

The grass is always greener on the other side.  Humans are like that.

Doctors overcorrect too often

Back when cholesterol target numbers ruled unopposed (before 2013), we all checked fasting lipids every three months. Before 2012, we also checked liver function quarterly in hapless riders on the cholesterol pill merry-go-round. That year the FDA announced there had not been enough reports of statin-induced liver problems to recommend routine monitoring. I have many […] Find jobs at Career...

Changing the focus from physician burnout to physician well-being

Physician well-being is a major focus of many physician organizations and is frequently highlighted in popular media.  Some have described the root of the problem as a disconnect between expectation and reality.  This is a helpful framework for situations that result in disappointment.  I recently rented a house on Airbnb.

The complex expectations of patients toward their physicians

When my father reached his mid-80s, an accelerating accumulation of physical and mental functioning issues persuaded him to switch to a primary care physician in a concierge medical practice.
