Physician's Guide to Doctoring with Bradley B. Block, MD

Dr. Kasten and I discussed when we can expect full FDA approval, rather than emergency use and what that entails, how she arrived at the declaration (made during the episode) that she believes the vaccines will last 2 years, why she thinks the vaccines provide sterilizing immunity, potential pathophysiology of thrombosis after the J&J and AZ vaccines, how the mRNA vaccines work (apparently muscles are just for show – not immune responses), and an update on the pediatric vaccines.

Dr. Nelson teaches us how to address #patientsindistress. The patient that says that nobody understands them and nobody listens to them and goes from doctor to doctor feeling ignored and misunderstood.
