Normalizing Human Behavior, Transvaginal Speakers, and Deflating Outsized Egos

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.
