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!

I’ve met so many people who tell me they’ve literally NEVER had a good experience going to the doctor. Of course, as a PCP, this makes me sad to hear but it is no surprise. I admit it, seeing us generally sucks. So WHY is this the case? Are doctors just greedy, socially inept, burned […]

Why do I look/feel 6 months pregnant after I eat? I’ve been asked this question more times than I can count. And I can understand why – bloating can be really uncomfortable & distressing. Sometimes it’s the people that are working the hardest on improving their diets that actually get the worst GI symptoms. Why […]

Are you making any of these? Using your Ob/Gyn as your PCP. My Ob/Gyn colleagues are phenomenal, and they do their best to take care of it all, but the reality is that there is A LOT to cover already in your well woman exam. Women’s health is so much more than your reproductive health […]

@michaelgregerMD is a nutrition fact powerhouse. I’ve been following his work and recommending his site (nutritionfacts.org) to my patients for years.

As @gretchenrubin says, […]

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 […]
