Most patients in New Jersey clinics understandably expect their doctors to be alert and focused. However, there are times when health care professionals may be overburdened with work. In fact, research suggests physician burnout has reached epidemic levels in the United States, and this could present certain risks for patients. "Burnout" is a term that means more than just being tired. It also refers to a loss of enthusiasm, emotional exhaustion, a lack of personal and job satisfaction and increased detachment and cynicism.

People who live in New Jersey may be one of the almost 1.4 million individuals in the United States with Lewy body dementia, or LBD. This is a complex and progressive disorder of the brain in which Lewy bodies accumulate in the parts of the brain that oversee movement, behavior and cognition. Its symptoms are very similar to well-known diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, resulting in the condition being severely underdiagnosed. There are many healthcare professionals, including physicians, who have no familiarity with LBD.
