Wayfaring MD

I am a family medicine resident who likes to highlight the hilarious in medicine as I write about patients, medical school, residency, medical missions, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

HIPAA is for reals, folks. All of my "patient stories" have been changed to protect patient privacy. I will change any or all identifiers, including age, location, race/ethnicity, sex, medical history, and quotes. Also, I am an anonymous internet person. Why should you trust an anonymous internet person to give you medical advice? Don't ask me, ask your doctor!

And for all you judgy judgertons out there just chomping at the bit to point out that I’m just a trainee who will make tons of mistakes too, just hold on to your britches for one second before you jump on my case, because my most recent medical error is coming up in the queue tomorrow.
