In addition to our work of giving medical care, our job is also to inform & educate, to help you better understand medical care and your own health. You can find lots of healthcare information online, but the amount of information can be overwhelming and conflicting information creates confusion; soundbite news stories about the latest medical study often compound the confusion.
