What's the Poop

I appreciate MedPundit's pointer to Dr. Henochowicz's blog, Medviews.

I liked his point about the inconsistency of physician recommendations to patients, What's the Poop.

I review medical records every day from all over the United States. The inconsistency of quality of care is astounding.

I recognize that medicine is an art, but, as Dr. Henochowicz pointed out, there are best practices for a reason.

It is disappointing to review a record and see the physician dutifully checking a HgbA1C and yet failing to do anything different when it comes back 10.
