"I am a practicing Internist & Pediatrician in a suburb of Detroit. That means I see patients of all ages. I would love to educate other parents with some of the vast amount of information in my small brain that cost me a fortune to obtain, both in hours and in dollars. It has been a long, hard road to get where I am today; and I would love to share my thoughts about the journey."

Musings of a Distractible Mind
"Reading this blog you may get the impression that I can’t make up my mind if I am serious or silly. Yet I think we all need a portion of both in our lives. I do my best to keep the balance and hope you enjoy the experience."

A blog, run by a med/peds intern, collecting useful journal articles for Med/Peds
Stories in Medicine
I am a physician practicing Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. This blog chronicles my life first as a medical student, then as a resident. It is about stories of medicine. If you think 'Scrubs' or 'Grey's Anatomy' tells the stories of a resident's life, then here is what it is really like (for one resident, anyway).
