Low Tech Medicine Trumps Higher Tech Website
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Thursday, 27th February, 2014

Fortunately, in the office practice of medicine, we rely on many low tech procedures -- talking with patients, listening with our stethoscopes and running blood tests. When we move to more sophisticated functions, there is a greater likelihood of having technical difficulties - as with this website.

Happy Valentine's Day!
written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Thursday, 13th February, 2014

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer’s lease hath all too short a date. Sometime too hot the eyes of heaven shines, And often is his gold complexion dimmed; And every fair from fair sometimes declines, ...

Chocolate - Friend or Foe?
written by Serrin Gantt, M.D.
on Saturday, 8th February, 2014

I have always loved sugar. Halloween was my most beloved holiday. I remember trips to High’s with my brother, our allowance funding purchase of Big Buddy’s, Hostess cupcakes (the ones with the orange swirl icing that came off in one piece), Charleston Chews….I could truly go on and on.

on Sunday, 2nd February, 2014
