All The Doctors Are Going To Play This On A Loop

I saw the song “Never Google Your Symptoms” show up on the Dr. Demento official Facebook page and thought “This is so totally a song for me!” Heck, I can even picture Steve singing it to me whenever I decided to hit the google if I had some new medical wrinkle. Sometimes, Google has been …

Brian? Trauma Centre. Trauma Centre? Brian.

It’s taken us 10 years, but we might finally have an answer to the Brian Persaud question, and I wasn’t even looking for it. Story time.

Signed On Your Liver, I’m Yours

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVLjTC2iDRg Small update: Simon Bramhall has been sentenced. It looks like he has to pay £10000 and do 120 hours of unpaid work.

What The ER Looks Like From The Doctor’s Point Of View

I saw this article about what it’s like in the ER late at night, and it made me think. I know these things. I know the doctors aren’t just bumming around all day making you wait for fun, but boy is it ever frustrating. I still remember how frustrated I was when I had to …

Have you ever seen that thing on social media where at the start or end of the day, someone will take a few minutes and list a few things that they’re grateful for or that make them happy? I don’t generally do that, but I’m going to go ahead and lay one on you all …

It’s Nothing, Honey. Writing Down The Time During Sex Turns Me On Is All

If the news is to be believed (not always a sure thing), therapists, patients and sexual relationships don’t tend to mix well. Even when everyone short of the ethics board is down with it, there’s a lot of room for things to go wrong. Often things go sideways in spite of the best efforts of …

He’s Going To Be A Real Hit In Prison With A Name Like That

Recently convicted of gross sexual imposition and tampering with records after a trial in which it was alleged that he groped various female patients during orthopedic exams is Dr. Jake Heiney.
