Tommorow, October 20, 2008, on the Dr. Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 (Doctor Radio)
Stay tuned! Tomorrow's how promises to be a great one. We have two really interesting guests, who will be happy to answer your questions, and of course, I will answer questions on any medical topic at all: just give me a call and I'll give you an answer...no copay required! All times are Eastern, and the show is repeated throughout the week.
If you have ever worried about concussions and your children (or husband, if you are my wife) you will not want to miss my first guest, Dr. William Barr, the Chief of Neuropsychiatry at the NYU comprehensive Epilepsy Center here at the NYU Langone Medical Center. Dr. Barr will answer all of your questions about the risk of concussion with competitive sports, the risk of reinjury, and the risk long term brain damage. We will also discuss an interesting experiment that will involve some NFL football players, hopefully in the far future...
Call me and Dr. Barr at 1-877-NYU-DOCS for any questions you may have on head injuries involving you or your children (8 to 8:30 AM EDT)
I am honored to have Dr. Nancy Snyderman booked onto our show from 8:30 to 9 AM EDT. Dr. Snyderman is a medical correspondant for ABC News and the author of several books, including Medical Myths That Can Kill You: And the 101 Truths That Will Save, Extend, and Improve Your Life. We will be talking about some of the truths (and myths) that may lead to some serious problems down the road.
Call me and Dr. Snyderman at 1-877-NYU-DOCS for any questions on any routine medical fact you think you know and find out if it is truth or myth! (8:30 to 9 AM EDT).
In our second hour I will be taking your questions on any medical topic at all (the best ones are when truth and myth are still an open question!). In addition to answering your calls and emails, we will talk a little bit about some of the interesting things I have seen in the office, including pneumonia (its always interesting if its you!), a weird rash in a woman who just gave birth, and a fracture that someone got on vacation and managed to avoid getting treated until getting back!
ASK DR. IRA (9AM to 10 AM EDT:: 877-nyu-docs)
