Our Favorite Articles

Posted by Charleen McManus, Membership on May 2, 2019

We read a lot of articles about the state of healthcare in the U.S. today. Occasionally, we find articles that not only reflect our philosophy, but also back it up with scientific data. 

The following articles explore a variety of topics that are part of the PartnerMD experience: the importance of primary care to health and longevity, prioritizing the relationship between a patient and their doctor, integrating physical and emotional health, and a true partnership between patient and physician. 

Tell us that you think in the comments and be sure to recommend any articles we missed. We will be keeping this page updated with new articles as we find them.

These options address wellness from food and movement, through de-stressing and mindfulness.
