A Word From Veeraish Chauhan, MD

I have always been big on patient education, which is why I have been striving to create trustworthy sources of medical information using social media as that "path to knowledge." Ignorance isn't bliss when it comes to your health. When patients understand their disease, it not only makes it less scary but also helps them understand the importance of following prescriptions and lifestyle changes to the T. It is about taking control and ownership of your health.

"It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul"

-Invictus (1875), William Ernest Henley


All content authored by me is exactly what it appears to be: a specialist nephrology physician's "spare-time" musings. Please take it at face value. It is not medical advice or a quasi/curbside consultation of any kind. Yes, you should still talk to your physician about your health issues. I am just making an effort to reach out to the layperson in order to explain a field of medicine that often has the smartest medical students and physicians in knots!
