New reader welcome

Welcome to, where you’ll find opinion, commentary and news from the perspective of a primary care physician. You can read the About page to find out more about me.

Your readership is valued, and I’d like to go over some of the ways you can explore the blog.

Subscribe. Content can be e-mailed to your inbox. Simply enter your e-mail address on top of the middle column on any page, and you will receive a weekly digest of blog posts as well as special announcements.

This service is free, and I will never sell or share your information under any circumstances.

You can also receive content via my RSS feed. Any feed reader, such as Google Reader, or your web browser will accept RSS. It’s an easy way to stay continuously updated with my posts. Click the Subscribe button found in the middle column of each page.

Twitter. Twitter is a microblogging platform where users can send and receive concise, text-based updates. My posts are automatically Tweeted, and I often respond to comments that my posts generate. I encourage you to follow me on Twitter, @kevinmd.

Reader Takes. Reader Takes is a regular feature where selected op-ed style pieces from the audience at will be published on the blog. Posts are between 500 and 600 words in length, and can argue any opinion related to medicine and health care. Anyone can submit a piece for consideration.

Share. If you like what you read, you can submit the post to a variety of social news sites, including StumbleUpon, Digg, or Reddit. At the bottom of each post’s individual page is a “ShareThis” button, giving further instructions. There is also a button to retweet posts on Twitter. Any submission to these sites is appreciated.

Comment. Many health care topics are controversial, with an array of polarizing opinions. You can join the conversation by clicking on the comment number on the upper right hand corner of each post. I moderate all comments, so spam, profanity, personal attacks, or discussion unrelated to the topic will be deleted.

Contact. If you would like to send me tips or interesting links for post consideration, please e-mail me. Due to volume, I cannot guarantee that everything received will be posted. I will give credit to your blog if you include a link.

Thanks for visiting, and I appreciate your readership.
