Concierge Medicine and appropriate incentives
Your doctor should be incentivized to make you more healthy. Not order more tests.
It has been estimated that only twenty percent of a doctor's visit is spent on patient education. In my practice this is reversed. I try to spend the majority of our time together on education. My goal is to empower you to make good medical decisions by leveling the information playing field between you and your doctors. This is accomplished by: making complex medical concepts understandable, providing good information (clear, accurate, unbiased, and complete), and teaching you how to distinguish good evidence from bad evidence. See my lectures on YouTube here. Below find my regularly posted patient education emails.
