It seems doctors are on TV all the time now talking about and any number of various medical issues and breakthroughs. But if you're not a doctor, how often do you understand everything they're saying? Doctors learn a whole lot in medical school, but communication doesn't get much emphasis. It's a really missed opportunity. Dr. Idina Wise is a neurologist at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in New York, and she says the debates and discussions during the pandemic proved doctors need to do better at being easily understood. What physicians should be doing or the public at large is communicating essentially at a fifth grade reading level. And the reason for that is so that nobody's missed. Adding to their troubles, doctors are under a ton of pressure to see, you know, as many patients as they can. And since that puts face time with a patient at a premium, she says it's all the more reason doctors need to make sure what they're saying is easily understood. John Dome in WTOP news.
