    A third top doctor has died from Ebola in Sierra Leone, a government official said Wednesday, as health workers tried to determine how a fourth scientist also contracted the disease before being evacuated to Europe. The announcements raised worries about Sierra Leone's fight against Ebola, which already has killed more than 1,400 people across West Africa. The World Health Organization said it was sending a team to investigate how the epidemiologist now undergoing treatment in Germany may have contracted the disease that kills more than half its victims. "The international surge of health workers is extremely important and if something...

    It’s time to ditch the woolly scarves, bow ties, and comic sexual tension, Doctor Who is back and he’s not messing around. Peter Capaldi took his bow at the London premiere of the new season on Thursday and his incarnation of the Time Lord is the darkest yet. Deep Breath, the feature-length first episode, sees the Doctor and his sidekick, Clara, struggling to come to terms with his tough new image. “Where did he get that face?” she wonders, mourning the boyish charm of Matt Smith, Capaldi’s predecessor.

    Obamacare plans have shrunk payments to physicians so much that some doctors say they won’t be able to afford to accept Obamacare coverage, NPR reports. Many of the eight million sign-ups in Obamacare exchanges nationwide already face more limited choices for physicians and hospitals than those in the private insurance market. But with low physician reimbursement rates, the problem could get even worse. For a typical quick patient visit, Dr. Doug Gerard, a Connecticut internist, told NPR a private insurer would pay $100 while Medicare would pay around $80. But Obamacare plans are more likely to pay closer to $80,...

    Now, should the medical workers in the Ebola infected countries use robotic technology to handle patients, administer certain drugs, and then do certain functions that could prevent the spread of the disease to the workers in the medical field? I thought this would be a much better way to have patients taken care of and reduce risk drastically in regards to patient to doctor/carer transmission.

    When and how will this pandemic of anti-Semitism end? The last time it was this bad in Europe, it ended in mass murder. Today the “Palestinians,” the darlings of the international media and “human rights community,” call openly for a new genocide of the Jews, and nonetheless never lose favor with the intelligentsia and elites. The moral myopia is as pandemic as the Jew-hatred, and growing. Whether this doctor is a Leftist or a Muslim (or both), he should be stripped of his license to practice medicine. But probably he will get away with a perfunctory reprimand. “Doctor refuses to...

    When most of us look at our hands, we might notice that we need to trim, clean, or stop biting our fingernails, and that's about it. But if you ask a dermatologist, they can see a whole lot more. Everything from poor diet and stress to serious kidney problems can be revealed by a glance at your fingernails. There are about 30 different nail signs that can be associated with medical issues, though many may indicate more than one problem, according to Dr. Amy Derick, a clinical instructor of dermatology at Northwestern University.

    I've commented before about the way in which America's teachers paint themselves as the hardest working, most pathetically abused people in America. In 2011, I noted that today's teachers work fewer hours and are paid more than my dad's generation of teachers, but the latter didn't whine all the time. Last year, I posited a reason for the unusual deference teachers get, and it's not because they're the overworked saints of their own heated imaginations: At National Review, Jason Richwine points out that this martyrdom shtick benefits them in intangible ways, and is the flip side of the disdain with...

    Nine of 10 doctors discourage others from joining the profession, and 300 physicians commit suicide every year. When did it get this bad? By the end of this year, it’s estimated that 300 physicians will commit suicide. While depression amongst physicians is not new—a few years back, it was named the second-most suicidal occupation—the level of sheer unhappiness amongst physicians is on the rise. Simply put, being a doctor has become a miserable and humiliating undertaking. Indeed, many doctors feel that America has declared war on physicians—and both physicians and patients are the losers. Not surprisingly, many doctors want out....

    When Obamacare policies go into effect Jan. 1, some Americans may be surprised to learn that their favored doctors or specialists aren’t covered under new plans. But supporters of the health-care reform law argue that the blame for that won’t rest with the Obama administration. “Remember, this is the insurance industry that’s running this and the insurance industry always squeezes costs by eliminating possibilities of seeing people,” said former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.” Mr. Dean is also the former head of the Democratic National Committee.

In California, Dr. Ted Mazer, one of the few ear, nose and throat specialists in the San Diego area who still treats Medicaid patients, says that he won't be able to do so any longer because of the low reimbursement funds from the government, The New York Times reported. "It's a bad situation that is likely to be made worse," Mazer said.

He says, "I was on this conveyor belt where I was treating a problem moving to the next." Dr. Lazowick is not alone. Many primary care doctors are taking this route. And the pace...

    If you ever wondered how much of an impact the Christian faith of Dr. Hannah Gay, the University of Mississippi Medical Center pediatrician whose treatment "functionally cured" a baby girl born with an HIV infection, has had on her work, you don't have to anymore. Her faith is "everything," she says. The former Baptist missionary who spent years living with her husband in Ethiopia in the 1980s opened up about her faith to the Baptist Press in a recent interview and she explained that her Christian faith defines her life. "My faith affects everything I do. It defines who I...

    Brasilia, Mar 28, 2013, Reuters: A Brazilian doctor who was charged with killing seven patients to free up beds at a hospital intensive care unit may have been responsible for as many as 300 deaths, according to a Health Ministry investigator. Prosecutors said Dr Virginia Soares de Souza and her medical team administered muscle relaxing drugs to patients, then reduced their oxygen supply, causing them to die of asphyxia at the Evangelical Hospital in the southern city of Curitiba. De Souza, a 56-year-old widow, was arrested last month and charged with seven counts of aggravated first degree murder.

    New Delhi - Doctors going to the US for studies and then planning to settle down there will not find it easy to do so now. As per new guidelines recently finalised by the Centre, the Union Health Ministry will no longer issue them a ‘No Obligation to Return to India’ (NORI) certificate that allows them to settle in the US. The move aims to check brain drain in the medical profession in the country, said a senior Health Ministry official. He said it is ironic that while the health system in India is crippled due to the acute shortage...

    Seen your Dr. lately? My doctor did NOT ask me these questions at my annual physical today, but many will ... live a great day ... A Medical Appointment ...... I visited a physician last week. It was a new doctor in the practice -- a young lady (at MY age, EVERYBODY is "young" -- when I was born, the Dead Sea wasn't even sick) who was quite enthusiastic. I was thinking of hitting on her, but I don't like the phrase, "You remind me of my grandfather." She asked me what was wrong, and I replied, "I have a...

Inside they say they found...
