An American Doctor In China: What’s Different?— MyHealth Beijing’s #1 post seemed to strike a chord with readers, as I offered more personal ramblings on my life here as a doctor. I still haven’t written the followup, “what’s the same”?…

Expatitis: Are You Infected? — This was part one of a series of posts where I try to describe certain common threads of maladies that I see in many expats — something I coined as expatitis. I was hoping that by putting a name to this constellation of symptoms, that expats could see their own warning signs and take some preemptive steps to staying healthy.
My Top Relaxing Drives in Beijing — This was probably my most surprisingly popular post, more of a casual reflection on my driving experiences here in Beijing. I’m very happy that many people took my advice!
