David Simel, MD, Chief of Medicine in the Durham VA, not only edits the Rational Clinical Examination Series in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), he sometimes authors a topic as he did in the recent issues of November and December 2015. Kudos to Dr. Simel for this ongoing contribution to the practice of evidenced based medicine.
