While this blog is many things, there are many things that it is not. This disclaimer outlines those things.


While BoringEM makes every effort to publish only correct information, we are still learning. We will double check our facts, but please realize that medicine is constantly changing and that one physician may interpret the available evidence differently from another. We are simply presenting our views on the medical work-up and/or management of medical complaints based on the evidence that we have reviewed and referenced as well as our own experiences. We welcome comments, suggestions and corrections.


BoringEM is HIPA compliant and will never reveal the medical information of patients. While you may provide your email address to subscribe to posts or to post information on the blog, we will never share your email address or contact information with third parties.
