ABSTRACT
Our goal as the new editors of the e-Consults column is to discuss the frequent. To this end, rather than explore bizarre and unusual clinical scenarios, we will endeavor to explore the many possible therapeutic options for common clinical problems. In addition, some of our future columns will discuss the everyday conundrums involved with billing--coding techniques and clinical decision making that is influenced more by the patient's attorney than by the patient's medical condition. Our consultants will vary, but every effort will be made to enlist comments from experienced private practitioners as well as academicians. Our consultants for this segment have all been in practice at least 10 years. They each bring a unique educational and practice experience to this discussion.
