The stories I tell are true, but some details may have been changed to protect patient privacy. Cases I recount took place over many years, in several states and numerous hospitals and most of them are not unique. Other doctors could tell similar stories because there are thousands of similar stories. I will not breach HIPAA policies and respect patient confidentiality as the cornerstone of care.
This website includes some discussion of medicine, health, and related subjects. Even though there is a category called “Trust me, I’m a doctor,” the medical stories I write are based on my opinion.
