    From the days of "Reefer Madness" until the timing of Proposition 19 with the "Legalization of Marijuana Initiative" on the ballot last November, the controversies swirling around not only the recreational use, but also the medical use of marijuana, particularly in frail, elderly geriatric patients with clinically significant weight loss (and cachexia), has been fraught with controversy. Even though the ballot initiative from 2010 went down in defeat on November 2, 2010, rumblings of some of the authors bringing another, more "targeted" CA initiative in 2012 are regaining momentum.

    A disturbing trend has emerged involving criminal charges being levied against family caregivers treating end-of-life (EOL) elders with dementia.

Inner ear disorders that cause dizziness are often associated with abnormal eye movements?in fact, it’s possible to diagnose an acute inner ear infection in five seconds, just by looking at a person’s eyes. In Dizziness, Drs. Gregory T. Whitman and Robert W. Baloh explore the different conditions that can cause dizziness, describe the types of dizziness they see most frequently, and explain what people with dizziness can do to feel better.

  • 9/12/2017 · Psychiatry
    Mr. B was a 75-year-old man who had made a will in 1995 naming his two sons as equal beneficiaries of his estate after his death. In 2004, he married Ms. M. On August 11, 2008, he was diagnosed with brain cancer, for the treatment of which he was hospitalized. On September 3, 2008, he signed a new will that Ms. M had procured for him, naming her the sole beneficiary of his estate after his death, to be subsequently given to his sons after the event of her death. Mr. B passed away on September 29, 2008. His sons subsequently sued Ms. M, alleging that Mr. B did not have testamentary capacity when he signed his new will. His attorney consulted me to review his medical records to assess Mr. B's mental state, testamentary capacity, and vulnerability to undue influence.

    Facts of the Case: Ms. P was a 91-year-old, widowed, Caucasian woman with a history of Parkinson's disease who was diagnosed with metastatic colon cancer after she was found down in her bedroom, where she had fallen and broken her arm. It was decided by her physicians that it was best to not pursue chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery. A colostomy bag was placed, and Ms. P was placed on home-based hospice care, with an emphasis on comfort care measures.
