Health blog posts of the week, ending January 2, 2011

Here are the top posts from this past week, based on the number of times they were viewed.

1. How American physicians should be paid. How do you think American physicians should be paid? I think many of the current methods are insane.

2. Patient complaints do not fit the primary care office visit. Primary care physicians often have to see patients with a litany of issues. Often within a span of a 15-minute office visit.

3. Health care economics and the relationship between doctor and patient. I used to practice pediatrics. It has been several years since I decided to leave medicine, but people still ask me about it.

4. Are chaperones a hindrance to patient privacy? There is no doubt that male physicians feel that they need to offer chaperones when doing pelvic exams on women.

5. Your attention deficit disorder may be an anxiety disorder. Your problem may not be a problem with your attention. In fact, it may be that the primary problem resides elsewhere in your brain.
