MedStudebt

Tuesday, March 20, 2018

  There’s a little term I like to use when I talk about medical school. It’s Medstudebt. For some reason my phone used to autocorrect to this, when I tried to type med student. But really it is kind of a funny (and very fitting) term. Let’s talk about the elephant in the room; one of THE MOST COMMON questions I receive on a daily basis. How do you deal with the debt from medical school?? I’ll be totally honest with you about my debt. I graduated medical school with $240K in student loans. This was somewhat average at the…

How I feel about being a doctor… the unedited version

Saturday, March 3, 2018

  There are days when I let the superficial angst and anxiety of my job, consume my thoughts. Many days.  I sit in front of my computer charting, thinking about how much I hate it. “I hate my job”, sometimes creeps into my mind. You guys don’t often hear me talk about the negatives, I know. That’s because I try not to dwell in the negatives. If I did, it would really bring me down. Every job comes with positives and negatives, but medicine in particular, has it’s fair share of negatives. The long days, high level of stress, difficult…

What everybody ought to know about my fitness routine

Sunday, February 25, 2018

A day in the life of Dr. Majestic, doesn’t always include a traditional workout. Being an Emergency Medicine physician comes with frequent schedule changes and trouble sleeping, much of the time. I have learned to be creative, when it comes to my workouts. In residency, I avoided working out completely, because I was so tired. Much of my calorie burning came from running around the hospital.

In the spirit of love <3

I cannot believe Chris and I are engaged!!! To say I am excited to marry this man, is an understatement. I am simply ecstatic!

Dear cold and flu…

Friday, January 12, 2018

  Dear cold and flu… YOU SUCK! I think anyone who’s anyone knows that influenza is running rampant this year! I wanted to share some words written by one of my colleagues, as I base my practice on these words, and find that many patients just want to be educated! No, this blog post doesn’t take the place of an actual physician evaluation; every patient is different. But without education, and people who are willing to get the facts and their experiences out there, we will have no way of reaching the public regarding these important topics. During these winter…
