Comment on front-page article entitled “Birth Control Via App Gains Quiet Foothold”

In yesterday's New York Times there was a front-page article entitled "Birth Control Via App Gains Quiet Foothold". I am compelled to comment. I acknowledge that the problem of unintended pregnancy in this country is huge. It is estimated that as many as 50% of births are "unintended", or I guess that means "unplanned." Fortunately, that is not even close to true in my practice. You see, guidelines are created as health policy and are intended for populations. I prefer healthcare that is ind...


Comment on New York Times article entitled “Bone drugs shunned for fear of side effects”

A recent New York Times article entitled "Bone drugs shunned for fear of side effects", is an excellent article written by the well known medical writer Gina Kolata. This is important information for all of my patients whether they are already at the age where bone loss and risk of osteoporotic fracture is present or, if considerably younger, concerns about bone health for themselves or their loved ones should be still on their minds going forward. By way of background statistics: more women ...

What is your true metabolic health?

09/24/2015 On 9/21/2015 Dr. Goldstein was interviewed by Dr. Max Gomez on CBS. As many of you are already aware, our Bone Density and Body Composition unit has a new program using the Dexa machine (which uses less radiation than flying on an airplane) to perform Body Composition tests. This innovative test reports your metabolic health based on your percentage of body fat, sex, and age. This method is far more accurate than using the BMI calculation that is outdated and not a sufficient mea...


Another Front Page Article in Today’s New York Times

07/07/2015 There is an extremely interesting article on the front page of today’s New York Times entitled, “Colorado Finds Startling Success in Effort to Curb Teenage Births.” The article talks about a private grant that allowed free IUDs or subdermal implants to prevent pregnancy that was a six-year experiment in Colorado. During this period of time, the birth rate among teenagers plunged 40% and the rate of abortions fell by 42%. Apparently, this was most evident in unmarried women unde...


A Message About Today’s News Concerning Ovarian Cancer and Angelina Jolie

03/24/2015 I am writing to you from Orlando where the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) is having its annual meeting. I am the current president of this 10,000-member society and as most of you know I wrote the second book ever on transvaginal ultrasound and the first book on gynecological ultrasound. Today's news about Angelina Jolie's decision to remove her ovaries necessitates that once again I send you, my patients, an email blast. Some important facts; first Angel...


Today’s NY Times Article

03/18/2015 I hope I am not inundating you with too many of these “Email Blasts.” However, once again, there is an article on the front page of the NY Times, which I feel mandates some commentary by me. And once again, I have gone back to the original article, which appears in the current issue of JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) rather than just the NY Times rendition and summary of it. The article is entitled “Diagnostic Concordance Among Pathologists Interpreting Br...
