Lisa Rosenbaum, M.D.: Transitional Chaos or Enduring Damage? The EHR and the Disruption of Medicine A decade ago, a primary care doctor I undone admired seemed to come adcirca and alcohol . His effectiveness had derived not really from rushing between individuals but from understanding them therefore well that his charting was effortless and fast.
