John Pienta, Cole Cheney, Amy Young, and newbie Rob Humble join Dave to discuss the recent winter break, the Rose Bowl, and Stanford’s half-time band performance. We discuss doctors who are non-compliant with their own recommendations for patients. Is that something they should be condemned for, or is it human nature? And when patients are non-compliant or engage in risky behavior, should docs acknowledge that as normal human behavior and avoid shaming them for it?
Also, a Spanish doctor has created a transvaginal speaker to help fetal development, because expecting moms like that sort of thing. Cole has seen a patient who is concerned about a recent change in their urine’s flavor. He also laments that, because of public health concerns, he can’t get a straight-razor shave in Iowa and would like our great state to revisits its legal views on the matter. And everyone helps Dave figure out what to do when he wins a billion dollars: create an endowed chair that would recognize and deflate outsized egos.
