Reflecting Over 39+ Years

Today, I invite you to join me on a lighthearted journey down memory lane as we explore the comical transformations that gynecological care has undergone since I began practicing 36 years ago. Marvel at how far we've come!

Ah, lab results, the magical documents that seemed to possess a knack for disappearing into thin air. I remember the horror of receiving a patient's lab results, only to find a blank space where crucial information should be. Was there a mischievous lab gremlin at play? Thankfully, with the advent of digital records and improved technology, the only thing disappearing these days is our collective sigh of relief as we securely access lab results with a few clicks.

Yes, you read that right! In this age of smartphones and social media, I couldn't help but notice an interesting trend among my tech-savvy patients. Selfie examinations have become a thing! With a mixture of curiosity and amusement, I've learned to accept the occasional "very personal selfie" that pops up in my inbox. A whole new level of patient involvement, wouldn't you say?

Reflecting on my remarkable journey through the ever-evolving world of gynecological care, I can't help but chuckle at the whimsical changes I've witnessed over the past 39 years. I've got so much more work to do.

While we enjoy a good laugh, let's also take a moment to appreciate the progress made in improving women's healthcare. My experiences remind us of the importance of embracing change, no matter how amusing it may be. So, here's to the future, where we can expect even more delightful surprises in the realm of gynecological care.
