MedPundit Outed

I’m not going to give it away, but I will link to it. The best medical blogger going is MedPundit, who posts under the pseudonym Dr. Smythe. As she states on her own blog, she’s a practicing Family Physician, so having her name directly attached to her blog could be problematic; it’a problem I’ve dealt with by not dealing with it; I used to post under my real name, but no longer.

Anyway, the second reason I don’t give interviews (the first is that nobody ever asks me) is that I’m jealous of my privacy, and I’ll bet Dr. Smythe is, too.


  1. I was really quite shocked when I read the article yesterday to see her real name used.
    I wonder how she feels about it.

  2. Yep, I saw that too. It was one of those “At last I know your real identity, Batman!” moments.

    But I doubt her patients will see it.
