Want to plan family, suffer from anxiety and hypochondria. Are OBs open 2 Q&A about worries and plans for these added hurdles in addition to therapy?

Planning Family: Each person / physician is different. As a physician it is my job to help educate patients.

Often attempts to reduce their angst & anxiety were fruitless. When somatic concerns & anxiety take over - it ...Read more

When educating patients about wellness and lifestyle changes, how do you motivate them?

When educating patients about wellness and lifestyle changes, how do you motivate them?

Must be internal: Being motivated by what other people want you to do will only take you so far. Motivation that lasts comes from wanting to do something because it's important to you. Often what we think are reasons we don't do what's good for us are really excuses. I ask people: is the way you're living now going to allow you to do what you want to be doing in 5 or 10 years? If not, what do you need to change? ...Read more

Any advantage to allowing insurance company to assign a rn to manage one's ongoing medical care and decisions?

Any advantage to allowing insurance company to assign a rn to manage one's ongoing medical care and decisions?

Yes: If well trained, caring, thoughtful, & beholden to his/her expertise can bring doctor's concerns to insurance company & get case moved along. Unfortunately, as I have observed, such nurses sometimes get fired for not adhering to common insurance company posture of knee-jerk denials and cost savings. In any case the nurse enlarges target for the doctor's advocacy. So yes, get one. ...Read more

Bf's online current events/political social media addiction causes intolerable financial&emotional anxiety.NOTHING I try helps@all.Should we separate?

No one can tell you: Clearly you are not content and feel unable to find a solution for changing him. I think it would be a mistake to trust any 'yes/no' answer to your '?'. It might be the way this will go, but there may be other options too. Try to find a therapist to help you think t through and perhaps provide or refer for couples Tx. Be patient as you seek a solution - it will help. ...Read more

Best way to improve my ability to memorize things in school(e.G subjects, topics tat was discussed) thanks doctors.. ^^?

Best way to improve my ability to memorize things in school(e.G subjects, topics tat was discussed) thanks doctors.. ^^?

Memory practices: I agree with dr. Ali and dr. Sparacino about repetition -- especially with colors and any other thing that brings in more senses (hearing, visual, touch, rhythm, even taste or smell, etc). The more engagement, the more retention. Reviewing lecture notes within 12 hours of the class will allow more to sink in as well. And, getting good sleep between study sessions will help you build retention. ...Read more

Must I set rules to help my child be ethical and honest on facebook?

Must I set rules to help my child be ethical and honest on facebook?

Yes: Children need boundaries. In life, once they leave your home, they will have boundaries imposed on them by the government, their boss, their finances and spouse. You do them a dis-service by not introducing them to the concept while they are impressionable and living in your home. They will thank you for it later. My children are not allowed on facebook at all. ...Read more
