DrJohnM is a medical blog that I began in 2009 on a whim without any grand plan. One thing led to another, and I was hooked.
I love being a learner. I feel like I’m behind. I spent so much time learning biology and medicine, I didn’t get to learn much else.
Mostly, I write about electrophysiology, cardiology, health, doctoring and, lately, the state of medical evidence.
The internet overflows with information on topics that I write about, like atrial fibrillation, for instance. My goal is not to replicate an encyclopedia, but to provide an inside-the-ropes look at things that I know and live.
The goals of DrJohnM:
- To educate on the science of heart rhythm and general cardiac matters.
- To emphasize the importance of healthy living choices for preventing heart disease—the most preventable disease.
- To give an inside look at doctoring.
- Patient information is sufficiently changed and kept generic enough to protect the privacy of patients.
- My writings are not medical advice. Discuss your treatment strategies with your doctor. I receive many request for advice. I can’t give medical advice over the internet.
- My opinions are my own, and are based on personal experiences. I will reference sources when applicable. Please do not confuse a blog post with a scientific paper or multi-referenced review article.
- If I am wrong about something, by all means point out my mistake. Bike-racing cardiologists have thick skin. Conversation makes a blog much better.
- WordPress requires your email to comment. Your email address is kept confidential and will not ever be published.
Enjoy. Interact. School me.
