Spent a great weekend visiting & catching up with some of my co-residents for our 4th/5th year reunion. Residency is an incredible & often exhausting bonding experience. I feel grateful that I became a psychiatrist with this amazing group. Missing those who couldn’t come (I swear, there are guys too!). #residencyreunion #psychiatrists #physicians #ladydocsrock
Sundays are for golfing 🏌🏻♀️
It was so interesting visiting the Mütter Museum today! I enjoyed the Homeopathic display (esp since I am working with the the most sought after Homeopathic, anti-aging product on the planet). Learning about so many things dealing with the body was very intriguing! #muttermuseum #philadelphia #homeopathic

“In the emergency department, you will see it all. You’ll see things that will make you laugh, that will make you cry, and that will both question but then restore your faith in humanity. You’ll see things that will make you wish you never went into medicine, but in the next minute make you realize how privileged you are to be a physician.”
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition where the hydrochloric (HCl) acid of the stomach contents regurgitates back from the stomach into the esophagus.
-Most commonly due to transient relaxations of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES)
-Low basal LES tone (e.g., scleroderma leading to esophageal dysmotility)
-Delayed esophageal clearance and/or delayed gastric emptying
-Obesity and/or pregnancy associated with GERD
-Worsened by hiatus hernia, where stomach protrudes and is pinched through the diaphragm
-Zollinger-Ellison (ZE) syndrome, which is a rare gastrin-secreting tumour leading to acid hypersecretion
Esophageal Signs and Symptoms:
-Typical: heartburn (pyrosis), acid regurgitation, water brash, sensation of a lump in the throat (globus sensation), frequent belching
-Atypical: chest pain, difficulty swallowing (dysphagia), painful swallowing (odynophagia)
Non-esophageal Signs and Symptoms:
-Respiratory: chronic cough, wheezing, aspiration pneumonia
-Non-respiratory: sore throat, hoarseness (dysphonia), dental erosions
-Symptom relief with proton pump inhibitor (PPI)
-Gastroscopy indicated if accompanied by red-flags (bleeding, weight loss, etc.), continued severe symptoms and/or erosive esophagitis after 4-8 wk trial of PPI 2x daily, Hx. suggesting esophageal stricture, and high risk for Barrett’s (male, age>50, obese, etc.)
-Repeat scope if severe esophagitis after 6-8 wks of PPI trial Tx.
-Esophageal manometry to assess esophageal motility and LES tone (often indicated prior to surgical fundoplication to confirm intact esophageal function)
-24 hr. PPI monitoring (not often done)
-PPIs are most effective
-Antacids, H2-blockers, or PPI prn
-Dietary changes (avoid alcohol, coffee, spices, tomatoes, citrus)
-Lifestyle changes (weight loss, elevate head of bed for nocturnal symptoms)

Did you know that pain with sex is so common that almost 75 percent of women have experienced it? Dyspareunia is the medical term for pain during sex, and it’s VALID.
Unfortunately, in society, women are taught not to regard this issue as valid, and we’re faced with social narratives telling us that the man’s penis is “too big.” However, this is RARELY the case. Gynecologist Jen Gunter offers some other potential diagnoses: Muscle spasm, nerve pain, skin conditions, low estrogen, and endometriosis.
If you’re experiencing painful sex, please keep in mind that you are entitled to proper medical care and a diagnosis. Get in touch with us today! ✨

I started using planners in high school but began using it heavily during my college years. The transition from high school to college included more sole responsibility, initiative, and time management. And a planner was incredibly helpful for me to hone down those skills. Writing down your schedule helps you see what you can and cannot do. It also allowed me to be more realistic with my time and made my day more doable.
I’m a person who needs a check list to get things done. In medical school we often hear “if you didn’t write it; it didn’t happen”. Well for me, “ if I don’t write it down; it won’t get done” 😂 ✨✨✨
1️⃣. I start by planning my week ahead every Sunday. I take 30 minutes to sit down and plan my week. I then check my planner again around Wednesday to see if any changes need to be made. The fun part is checking off things that I planned for the day. (Right now it’s my daily intraining practice board questions)
2️⃣. Make it fun!! Use stickers & quotes. I buy colorful stickers to remind me to call or text someone, bill payment dues, or beautiful or motivational sayings. I add motivational or inspirational bible verses in my planner. It really does help especially if I’m experiencing a rough week.
3️⃣. Pick the right one for you. Your decision may come down to your budget, the look of it, or what you want out of your planner. I first started out with a $5 monthly planner. As a college student, that’s what I could afford and I needed a planner to get the job done. I’m now on my 3rd BLOOM planner. LOVE LOVE LOVE this planner! Mainly because it has monthly goals, weekly goals, and weekly motivational quotes. Each month starts off with goals you have to set for yourself which is divided into work, finances, home, relationships, and health. At the end of month you write things you have learned. Hence the name “Bloom” planner.
Why not give it a try? Get a planner today! You won’t regret it!
If you have a planner, tell me what you like most about it 😀
So we took a hiatus & are back and feeling better! We will now be releasing weekly episodes of our show every Monday. Thanks for your patience with us on this journey & see you tomorrow 🙏🏾🙏🏽
"Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength. At the end of the day, it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished. It’s about what you’ve done with those accomplishments. It’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.”
One Year Later. A year ago I decided to take the plunge and launched my blog: Mocha In Medicine. It was originally a way to document my journey through 4th year and mentor other students of color interested in medicine. A year later it has evolved into way more than I ever originally envisioned (and 10K IG followers 😱). I have made so many connections through my blog and IG, gained some new mentees, and have been able to inspire others simply by sharing my journey. Here’s to facing your fears and stepping outside of your comfort zone. ✨💕

Did you know July was national Sarcoma Awareness Month? Every year thousands of people are diagnosed with sarcomas, a type of cancer that forms in the connective tissues of the body including fat, blood vessels, nerves, etc. Sarcomas are a rare form of cancer, but no less deadly for their rarity. It’s not clear what causes sarcoma. Family history and exposure to chemicals or radiation may increase risk. Symptoms depend on tumor type and location. They may include a noticeable lump or pain. Let's celebrate by starting with educating ourselves and others. With these forms of cancers being so rare most people don’t know a lot about them, so spend some time researching sarcomas in all their forms. Sarcoma Awareness Month is your perfect opportunity to do so, and then carry it through the rest of the year.⠀

Gynecologist Dr. Jen Gunter offers unique insight into the societal issues women face with their vaginas, and how the opinions of men alter their perceptions of their own bodies. As women, it’s important for us to steer clear of monetization schemes profiting off of an archaic notion that there is only 1 way a vagina should look.
She states that, “These women all shared something: They were told these things by men. While I admit this is anecdotal data, my years of listening to secret shame about healthy vaginas and vulvas seems to suggest it is largely, if not entirely, male partners who exploit vaginal and vulvar insecurities as a weapon of emotional abuse and control.” Read more via link in bio.
