About DocThoughts

DocThoughts is written by Abigail Schildcrout, M.D., founder of Practical Medical Insights, a consulting service whose purpose is to guide clients through the clinical side of the medical world.  Dr. Schildcrout’s forthcoming book, Your Hospital Guide, is a non-alarmist guidebook for anyone who may someday find him/herself or a loved one in a hospital.

Her goal, both with her company and with her book, is to empower patients.

DocThoughts is a forum for Dr. Schildcrout to talk about topics from her book, subjects relevant to her work, issues of general medical interest, and other matters.  She looks forward to discussing these things with you, and hopes you enjoy her blog!
