My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

    • Historically we have practiced medicine by geography--where a disease occurs in the body. That doesn't make scientific sense anymore. Now we have the potential to treat illness by understanding the underlying mechanisms and metabolic

    • A study
      in Family Medicine
      reported the disturbing data that, on average, a patient was able to speak uninterrupted for only 12 seconds! On the other hand, Dr. Sanders noted that the average patient will get their story out in two minutes. Doctors do not listen and it interferes with the quality of care and the ability to make a diagnosis. Most of the time, if we take the time to listen, you are telling us what we need to do to help you. Even worse, after the visit was over, patients and doctors couldn't agree on the purpose of the visit. No one was listening!

    • You can't manage your doctor's practice, but here are some things you can do
      to manage your time.

      • Find out when the doctor starts and get the first appointment of the
      morning or afternoon
      • Call 30 minutes before your appointment and find out
      if the doctor is running on time. If not ask if it is OK if you come later?
      • Always bring work or a book, as the magazines in the office are outdated and at least you will be productive
      • If your doctor is chronically late, find another doctor.

    • Not that we are starving, but the average medical student comes out of medical school with over $100,000 in school loans and if they go into primary care they will be paying those loans back for decades. We are getting a reset in fees. Highly paid specialists are coming down, but primary care doctors are not going up. Unfortunately there will always be a discrepancy, for the politics of reimbursement has always been to favor procedures and hospitalizations as opposed to office visits. I can only ask you to think twice before you assume that your weary eyed pediatrician seeing their 40th sick child of the day is the one being over paid.
