On a Roll... PB Featured on Kevin MD!

I am again honored that one of my favorite blogs, KevinMD, picked up a shortened version of my Professionalism APGAR post! Two features in one week... lots of activity here! You can view the KevinMD post here.

KevinMD (read more about founder Kevin Pho here) is a blog that syndicates pieces on all sorts of medically-related topics. There are multiple posts per day, always seemingly timed to provide a great diversity of subject matter. Not only does the blog feature all sorts of physician-written material on medical policy, social media, Dr-Pt relationship, medical science, etc... it also occasional features pieces from a patient or business perspective.

If you were referred to PracticeBalance from KevinMD, welcome! I'd love to hear feedback on what you see and what you'd like to see more of!


  1. I am a doctor from India, and a regular visitor of kevinmd. I read your piece with a lot of interest, and will be trying to incorporate this in my practice. Aiming for that 10/10 !!

Bittersweet: 21 Day Sugar Detox Results

From now on this is the only kind of cupcake I really want (there's a "cherry" on top of that hat)!

- The first 2-3 days were the hardest. I was used to having sweet flavors all day, and the abrupt change (starting with my morning coffee) was like a slap in the face. At first, I craved a sweet taste constantly. But that feeling subsided, and my tastes did start to change. A green apple began to taste quite sweet, for example. I wouldn't say that I now love coffee without my vanilla stevia drops, but it isn't bad. Now that I've done it, I can vouch for what others have said: curbing your intake of sweet foods definitely decreases your cravings for them. After a while, I just didn't even think about sweets, and if I saw the…

Shoe-drop thinking: How to let go of the past?

(Yes, there is something growing in there!)
I'm pregnant, again... I'm almost 10 weeks along and definitely feeling symptoms of first trimester pregnancy this time.

No big announcements, clever texts or Facebook posts, no balloons or flowers or drama. Just quiet and cautious happiness... somewhat. You see, it's actually been difficult to enjoy the good news because I'm suffering from self-proclaimed "shoe-drop thinking"; things are going well, so when will the other shoe drop? When will that bad thing happen, you know, because something bad always happens?

I've felt exhausted on a new level, and the nausea started on cue right at 6 weeks. The occasional tugging in my lower abdomen signals the growing pains of my uterus (even though there's not much visible outward growth yet). I've had three ultrasounds that show perfectly-timed fetal growth and a strong heartbeat.

But when I have a day where I feel more energetic, I think maybe it's all over.…
