Hey everyone! Medical issues come up a lot on here, and there seem to be relatively few physicians commenting (probably that whole being busy thing). This is a good opportunity for a doctor to air her views on medicine and women's health. And, if all goes well, help provide some information about the doctor's side of the screwed up thing that is American medicine.

Disclosure: I am not the doctor, but my wife is. And she has agreed to answer as many questions as she can as quickly as she can (basically I'll relay them to her, and we wait for her to get enough time to answer).

Please note a few caveats: she has liability, and as such, will probably answer personal medical questions with the typical, "Please see your physician, I cannot diagnose you over the interwebs, also that looks infected." This is better suited to field-specific questions, or questions about women in medicine. She may decline questions, but I will try my best to at least explain why.

I will do my best to get answers as quickly as possible!

Dr. Chang is now taking questions.
