Asking that one key question

June 30, 2008

The June 23 My Turn essay ["With One Question, a Routine Exam Becomes Anything But"] was extremely interesting and well-written.

The only pertinent comment I can make is that in my 32 years of ob-gyn practice since finishing my training at Harbor/UCLA (like the article's Dr. Bill Parker, whom I know), I also have asked my patients that same question about spotting on hormone replacement therapy and likewise have diagnosed several very early uterine cancers. However, unlike Bill, I still have insurance contracts.
