Hello, and greetings from New York, The H1N1 Flu Capitol of the US. And we are still not worried! You won't be worried either, after listening to Sirius/XM's hourly flu updates here on Doctor Radio at the top of the hour! Stay tuned. There are also updates on other stations (I was on the Catholic Channel Last week).
But, there is a lot more than flu going on around healthwise, and Doctor Radio and the Doctor Ira Breite Show are not forgetting that! We have a great line up.
There has been so much interest in heart arrythmias during our cardiology segments that that we decided to bring on a specialist in this specific problem. My former co-resident, Doug Holmes, MD, an electrophysiologist at NYU, will discuss various arrythmia issues, including atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardias, and even heart problems in children.
If you have any questions about your beating heart (or the heart of a loved one, including children!) call us at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.
OK, besides H1N1 Flu, the media is full of stories about the recession. One of the ones that caught our eye is that, in an effort to save costs, more men are having vasectomies! While its not for us to tell people what to do in this sensitive area, it is important to know your birth control options, including vasectomy.
If you have any questions about vasectomy, male birth control, or reversing a prior vasectomy, now would be a great time to call us at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Of course all of this talk about birth control leads to....headaches (ha ha, and sorry to everyone but I couldn't resist!). Deciphering and treating headaches ranges from the incredibly easy to the confoundingly difficult. Join me and my guest, Neurologist and Headache expert Dr. Keith Siller, as he answer all of YOUR questions about headaches, what to do about them and what tests you may need.
Got a headache? need an answer? call us at 1-877-NYU-DOCS
Of course, we will have a full segment of Ask Doctor Ira where you can ask me any question on any medical topic you want...CALL me at 1-877-NYU-DOCS
If you have any ideas for a show, or any questions, feel free me to email me at irabreite AT yahoo DOT com. Remember, this advice is not a substitute for seeing a doctor.
