We’ve sometimes written about doctors as e-patients. (There are a lot!) Here’s the next.

SPM member Howard Luks MD, orthopedist, had some symptoms. He spoke to his physician and GI doc, who gave him pills. It didn’t make sense to him. So he did what a lot of us do:

“Then I headed onto a few patient-centric web sites.┬áThe information I found there was enlightening. There were a number of stories that were identical to mine. There were a few simple strategies that were suggested. I adopted them, and guess what? Sleeping well, waking up rested, no pills, no medications.”

And check out what happened when he dutifully reported all this to his docs. :-)
