"Diagnosis"

AADMD INFO BLAST - FOR AADMD MEMBERS
"DIAGNOSIS"
Dr. Lisa Sanders is a physician who writes a weekly column in the Sunday New York Times called, "Diagnosis." It's a lively two page read in which she describes a patient, symptoms, course of the disease, its "mysterious diagnostic challenge" and subsequent resolution. Although written for the general public it does have some pertinent "take home messages" for clinicians.
