It is a beautiful weekend in the Washington area and all around the country.

Wasn’t 2017 an overly interesting year? I do not recall another year when I would rush home from work almost everyday to have dinner in front of the television to watch the news and read the newspapers. I admit I had less time to exercise this year and vow to change that habit in 2018. I have blamed my “tendonitis” in my right arm for not doing my usual pushups ...

on Saturday, 2nd December, 2017

It has been astonishing to watch the #MeToo movement, with one public man after another stepping down from their “pedestal” after being accused of sexual harassment.

It was inspirational to see many cancer survivors walking and running among us. ...

written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Sunday, 24th September, 2017

My husband and I had not gone to see a movie for a long time until last weekend. I was going to propose a romantic movie such as “Tulip Fever,” but we were told it didn’t have a good review.
