Medical gaslighting: How dismissing patient concerns harms patients with chronic illnesses
Join us as we discuss with family physician Lisa Baron the pervasive issue of medical gaslighting, particularly in women seeking care for chronic illnesses. We’ll delve into the consequences of dismissing symptoms and the importance of validating patient concerns. We’ll also explore the role of social media in connecting patients with support and treatment options, as well as steps doctors can take to improve their bedside manner and rebuild trust with patients who have been gaslit in the past.
Lisa Baron is a family physician.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Gaslighting and dismissal: the consequences of invalidating patients’ concerns.”

Ambient intelligence augments human capabilities to make our lives easier. The applications are many, especially in health care. Ambient clinical intelligence is offsetting the most pressing challenges in health care today, such as burnout, physician shortages, physician and patient dissatisfaction, and underperforming financial outcomes, by applying the technology to clinical documentation.
The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, utilizes artificial intelligence and natural language processing to automatically document care. It securely listens to and captures the natural, clinician-patient encounter conversation unobtrusively, and turns that conversation into a clinical note for the clinician’s review and signature directly in the electronic health record. You just talk naturally, and DAX does the rest.
DAX is being used by thousands of physicians across 30 different specialties nationwide. It has already won the Silver Stevie award in the health care technology category and was ranked #1 for improving clinician experience in KLAS’s top 20 emerging solutions.
