Last fall, Dr. Brewer
launched a bi-monthly column in the Wall Street Journal Online
called "From the Doctor's Office."The column provides a remarkable personal view of the challenges and rewards that make up a typical day in the life of a busy family physician. His
first column, "A Doctor, a Sick Boy, a Scared Mother and No Insurance" illustrated the terrifying uncertainty of an asthmatic boy with no insurance who must rely on whatever free samples Dr. Brewer
can find to keep his
attacks under control.
Other columns have chronicled the increasing obstacles that insurance systems place on physicians and patients.He's
talked about pharmaceutical drugs and the effects that cost containment measures actually have in real life and how his
relationships with patients and his
instincts as a family doc have avoided potential errors.
When you think about all the issues we family physicians talk about with each other, Dr. Ben Brewer
has found a way to turn those issues into stories that anyone can relate to," said Dr. Brull.
"Just like most of us, Dr. Brewer
has a story for every situation.
