September 9, 2018

I recently read Dr. Norman Doidge’s books – The Brain That Changes Itself and The Brain’s Way Of Healing.

99% of Doctors Need Help in Making a Diagnosis

September 2, 2018

Here is the lead sentence in the Medscape article “99% of Doctors Need Diagnostic Help.”  “Medical errors have become an accepted if unfortunate part of medical care, but physicians may greatly underestimate how much they contribute to the problem.” This statement implies that medical errors are part and parcel of medicine, and there is nothing […]

The title of a recent Medscape article “Statin Use Linked to Idiopathic Inflammatory Myositis” caught my eagle eye. First of all, let me give you the definition of Idiopathic.
