I am a physician with two major areas of work/focus:

one: healthcare social media; using twitter as a versatile platform for the communication of science and technology as related to health/healthcare, and for health related conference / event curation

two: the field of aging: frailty and mobility, and to that end, developing technological upgrades to the walker mobility aid (& educational tools to accompany same).

I am available to consult on issues related to professional Twitter. Contact me through my website (here).  More on my professional background can be found on LinkedIn.

    • Thank you John, I also enjoyed our conversation. I agree that the tide is finally turning as both patients and physicians realize that a more level playing field and shared decision making are key to optimal outcomes. IMO, a mutually open, comfortable, honest, informative, and trustworthy patient-physician relationship is the lynchpin for such outcomes.


      • Agreed. I finally have a mutual respect with my PCP team not to push statins on me given the BMJ 2015 Meta-analysis found less than a 6 day increase of lifespan on average.
