The best recent posts you may have missed

Every other month or so, I post a list of my top 5 favorite posts since the preceding "best of" list on this blog, for those of you who have only recently started reading Common Sense Family Doctor or don't read it regularly. Here are my favorites from June and July:

1) Should you be screened for lung cancer? Maybe not, and here's why (7/29/13)

2) $10 billion per year to train the wrong physicians (6/18/13)

3) Abandoning risk factor assessment for HIV and HCV (7/1/13)

4) Screening-illiterate physicians may do more harm than good (7/13/13)

5) Low-value care for acute chest pain in the ED (6/4/13)

If you have a personal favorite that isn't on this list, please let me know. Thanks for reading!
