Caregivers Can Read Medical Weblogs - Doctors Blog About What's Really Going On

Caregivers and seniors who want to understand the issues doctors face today and what really goes on can read medblogs, short for medical blogs. At internal medicine physician and blogger Kevin Pho says "people not involved in healthcare have no idea what goes on "behind the curtain." Some of the posts have covered subjects such as "the death of primary care," "defensive medicine,""malpractice," "reimbursement," and "health care reform."

KevinMD has been featured in publications including The Wall Street Journal, British Medical Journal, and American Medical News.

He's also been interviewed on CBS News by Katie Couric.

The KevinMD Med Blog Power 8 Lists the medical blogs that were exceptional during the past week.

Many of the subjects in the Power 8 included information that would be helpful in saving money on prescriptions, understanding how emergency rooms work, and other topics useful for caregivers.
