Walk with a family doctor as she solves this head scratcher in this week’s featured article, “Medical Mystery: A True-Life What-Done-It,” and see how doctors make the decisions they make—and how listening to your body may save your life.

Feel healthy. Live well. Smile. With our free, upbeat health newsletter.
