Social Media Medicine Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Article Taking a Controversial Position on the Reality of Life as a Medical Professional

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, features expert insight on her talk show about the two opposing perspectives on medical professional highlights and lowlights.

New York, NY – August 8, 2011Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the REAL World, recently published an article on her website that honestly examines the pitfalls of the daily grind for medical doctors in the workplace. The article, titled “Sentimental or Cynical: Reactions to Today’s Medical Workplace” confesses that many aspiring doctors become jaded by the mounting administrative and legal red tape required in order to change patients’ lives for the better.

Dr. Anderson writes, “When I first started practicing medicine, after the years of medical school, I had a fresh and inspired perspective like most medical students. Of course, I loved my patients dearly. I knew their families and their dogs. I also knew about the deaths and the marital affairs… I felt like a counselor in many ways, having been invited in to the confidences of my patients’ private lives. I loved the older couples who were like my surrogate parents. I enjoyed the home-made brownies with the Ghirardelli chips and the wooden Uncle Sam model that was hand made for me.”

“However, after years of working in the profession, my perspective changed. Medicine became to me daily source of drudgery and stress. The dream of helping people in medical distress, and the deep relationships that I developed with people who came to see me on a regular basis was not enough to outweigh the labor of insurance paperwork, the difficulty of not getting paid, the taunting of lawyers breathing down my neck and the rudeness of people yelling at me when they said I did not respect their time because they had to wait to see me,” confesses Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the REAL World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
