In some ways, they are like a dry sponge, waiting to inflate rapidly when given the opportunity.

So how can you enjoy this holiday and make sure that the only thing that ends up stuffed is the turkey?

The change of pace in medicine has been breathtaking and unprecedented in its scope and impact.

Doctors and patients are being herded into large clusters of "accountable care groups." Small private practices are being marginalized and are targeted for extinction.

You can either let aging depress you, or inspire you... This past year, as I stared down the day that I would turn 40, I made a choice to embrace it in a big way!

New Help for Sufferers of Post Lyme Disease Syndrome

Southern New England is ground zero for Lyme Disease. Every year, thousands of patients are acutely infected with this insidious spirochete. If you are fortunate, you had enough symptoms early on so that you and your doctor could recognize the disease and you could receive proper treatment right away.
