A terrific post on the equally terrific blog by Dr. Kevin Pho – who makes me wish I lived in Nashua, NH, until I remember how bad the winters are up there 😉 – inspired the second Proactive Patient Podcast by Dorothy Erlanger and yours truly.

Dr. Danielle Ofri makes a great point, that doctors have to serve as translators as well as diagnosticians, helping patients understand their conditions, not just telling them what those conditions are – too frequently in jargon that the average Joe or Jane wouldn’t understand without a medical encyclopedia.

Give it a listen – thanks!
