Tomorrow, January 19th, 2009 on the Dr. Ira Breite Show: Doctor Radio, Sirius 114 and XM 119

We have a great show lined up for tomorrow! In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Day, and of the upcoming inauguration of Barack Obama as our 44th President, we have dedicated part of the show to Presidential health. I will be talking with Dr. John Sotos, a Cardiologist who is an expert on Presidential Health. (9 to 9:30 AM EST)

We will also be talking with NYU-Langone Medical Center physician Gbenga Ogedegbe, who is an expert on hypertension and is running a program to help increase minority participation in blood pressure monitoring and treatment. He has been on with us before, and was a great help to many of our listeners as he is able to explain the sometimes complicated treatments that are often used to treat this common problem. You can call him with your questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS! (8:30 to 9 AM EST)

Its winter, and despite holidays and inagurations, if you are an internist, you are seeing lots and lots of sinusitis. And if you're anybody stuck in the freezing cold, you either have it, know someone who has it, or are about to get it! I'll talk to an expert, Dr. Todd Schaffer, about what you can do about sinusitis, including surgical treatments. If you have any questions at all about your sinuses, especially if you are so miserable that the idea of surgery seems fine, given us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS

Of course, we will have open phones and stories from my office on Ask Dr. Ira! I would like to thank all of you who have been sending me questions and show ideas to irabreite AT I will be trying to get to them on the air or get them on as a whole segment. Keep those ideas and questions coming.

IF YOU HAVE ANY MEDICAL QUESTION AT ALL call me at 1-877-NYU-DOCS. Lets think about your issues together!
