I'm a primary care doctor who is passionate about food, writing and making healthcare less frustrating and more empowering. These are my musings. Thanks for reading!

@michaelgregerMD is a nutrition fact powerhouse. I’ve been following his work and recommending his site (nutritionfacts.org) to my patients for years. Unlike so many people who write about #nutrition, he is quick to acknowledge LIMITATIONS of research when he makes a claim (I.e this was only proven in rats) and ALWAYS meticulously cites his sources 👌 I […]

Okay so this may seem like a strange choice for a doctor’s book club but hear me out – I don’t really care how exactly you fold your shirts, but I DO believe that a cluttered, disorganized environment contributes to the invisible loads we all carry AND everything we own has an energetic cost. As @gretchenrubin says, […]

I’ve noticed something interesting lately- When I have a complex patient that’s had a lot of unresolved issues for a lot of years, they often start to believe, “No one can fix this.” When these patients would come to me on a packed clinic day with their stack of records, med and allergy lists a […]

Did you know almost 50% of adults have #hypertension? It’s one of the most common diagnoses I see in #primarycare & many patients have NO idea they have it because it can cause NO symptoms, but it ⬆️s your risk of heart attacks, strokes & kidney failure. These readings are from a lovely patient that established w/ me […]

There are some cookbooks I keep around for the pretty pictures and some that I actually USE. As you can hopefully tell from the zillion tattered tabs that this one is a winner 💯 Although I’m a big proponent of healthful eating, I am not fanatical about eating “clean” or sticking to a rigid plan.

I bought Atlas of the Heart when it came out w/out really knowing what it was (I will blindly purchase anything by Brene Brown). I would describe it as an encyclopedia of human emotions & experiences. The idea is to give readers the language & framework to build more meaningful connections, which I know sounds […]

I saved my patients over $500 last week 🙌 Here’s how 👇 Case #1 I had prescribed a patient ear drops that turned out to be $200. She was able to text me (on Saturday morning from the pharmacy) & I was able to directly communicate w/ the pharmacist to authorize an alternative ✅ In a […]

When I tell people I have a medical practice for women and I don’t take insurance, a few people (all men 🤔) have responded with “oh, cool, so you do Botox?” Umm, NO. For the record, I have NO problem with (and definitely NO judgement about) botox, however 👉 I’m an internist. My job is […]

Have you ever found yourself feeling disappointed finding out your labs are completely normal? I see this a lot in primary care. A patient will come to me feeling fatigued, foggy or just not themselves & they are convinced a deficiency, allergy/sensitivity or hormone problem is to blame. We order a bevy of tests and […]

You know who deserves to be a star? BEANS. Beans are an unsung nutritional hero. Meat gets all the glory for being a source of protein, but beans basically do this job even better – they provide a good source of protein AND fiber (which btw meat has ZERO of) without adding the saturated fat. […]
