1. Jones, Val, Dr. “Better Health: Smart Health Commentary Featured.” Health RSS2. Better Health, 30 Mar. 2015. Web. 19 Nov. 2015.

Background: The article starts off by the author’s personal experience as a doctor on how  one of his patient refused to admit that she did drugs when the results from the tests he did on her was revealing otherwise. Another example mentioned was how most patients with  diabetes do not honestly tell doctors their excercise and eating habits. Dr. Jones then shifts the tone of the article when he tells readers that he believes there may be a judgemental attitude doctors give off to their patients making it harder for patients to open up.  In addition, he felt bad he didn’t make his patient feel safe enough to open up. Overall the article focuses on how doctors give off a judgemental attitude and that it is not fully the patient’s fault.

How I intend to use it: I could use this article to provide reasons why patients may unconsciously lie to their healthcare providers. The article was also good as a rebuttal showing that it is not the patient’s fault completely. 

2.“More than one in four patients lie to the doctors.”More than One in Four Patients Lie to the Doctor. The Advisory Board Company, 19 Feb. 2013. Web. 19 Nov. 2015.

Background: This article has sources to surveys and percentages of the amount of people who lied to doctors, what they lied about, and more. The article also provides common reasons why patients lie and what they lie about.

How I intend to you it: To mention the survey and talk about the common lies that this article states because it offers different reasons than the other articles like how people lie because they worry about their medical records.

Background: This article is more towards doctors on how to detect lies from patients.

How I intend to use it: I could be used as a rebuttal and talk about how about doctors could take action and make sure patients tell the truth or make them feel more comfortable because the statistics shows 1 out of every 4 lie; therefore doctors much adapt and perform accordingly.

5. When doctors and patients lie to eachother

Background: This online book that I found tells us reasons why patients lie and why doctors lie.

How I intend to use it: Though I still need to find the actual research that this book mentions I could use this source for a rebuttal and for more details on the relationship between doctors and patients.

6. Palmieri, John J. “Lies in the Doctor-Patient Relationship.” Primary Care Companion to The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry. Physicians Postgraduate Press, Inc., n.d. Web. 20 Nov. 2015.Article defines lying and talks about types of lies that are apparent in clinics by doctors AND patients.

Background: This article defines lying and talks about mistakes both doctors and patients make.  Like how doctors over simplify something, minimize problems, mislead patients, and even lie because they avoid delivering bad news. Also, how patients lie about “symptoms to obtain disability or access to controlled medication or to avoid incarceration or other undesired legal consequences of their actions.”

How I intend to use it: Can be used for the rebuttal. Also, it is very detailed on the lies patients tell doctors.

Background: The article talks about different experiences from doctors and how one claims that patients sometimes are lying to themselves to make them feel  better. The article also mentions how doctors try to detect signs of lying such as looking away, pausing, and so on.

How I intend to use it: If I want to add more experiences and examples of doctors into my writing, I could use this article. It has doctors of different fields like dentist to pediatrician. 

9. National Consumer Health Privacy Survey

“National Consumer Health Privacy Survey 2005.” – California Healthcare Foundation, Nov. 2005. Web. 24 Nov. 2015.

Background: This article brings up more details on why patients lie for a different reason–privacy. Some patients are willing to risk their health so that they can keep details in their life hidden. Also, some people will lie if they think it will get them better benefits.

How I intend to use it: To add more reasons on why patients lie.


Background: The way family raise the child can affect how successful a child can be. For example, rich families tend to spend more time with their kids, giving the kids better communications skills for school and the work field.

How I intend to use this: To show how the actions of parents heavily weigh the child’s ability to communicate in school and in the work field.


Background: How a parent treat his/her child, affects the child’s communication skills and their behavior.

How I intend to use this: How parents affect how children behave and talk.

    When you submitted your Portfolio, wcf, it didn’t contain an Annotated Bibliography. To avoid having to fail your entire submission, I changed the category on this post to include it. That created a new problem: a portfolio that contained 7 instead of 6 items. You were supposed to leave out one of your short argument rewrites, so I ditched the Definition Rewrite. It was the oldest. You were supposed to make the choice, but you didn’t.
