Monday, August 31st on the Doctor Ira Breite Show: Doctor Radio: Sirius 114 and XM 119.
September is around the corner. With the exception of Labor Day, its really back to work and back to school. We have an excellent show to get you back in the rhythm of things.
Speaking of rhythm, we are going to start out the show by interviewing Dr. Anthony Aizer, a Cardiologist and expert of heart rhythms here at the NYU Langone Medical Center. Many people come to my office complaining of palpitations or a skipped heart beats. Hear from the experts what to look for, and when you should seek the advice of a specialist!
If you have any questions about your heart give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
I don't know about you, but my summer workout routine has left me in some pain. Joining me to talk about pain, including a new study that shows that neck surgery for cervical spine disorders helps alleviate headaches is Dr. David Kloth of Connecticut Pain Care, the Dr. Ira Breite Show's resident pain expert!
If you have had neck or back pain and would like some ideas for relief, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
The H1N1 Flu is coming back? Well, after seeing many cases in June and early July, I hadn't seen a case all summer: until last week! The kids are back, school is starting, and, well, what's going to happen. If the flu hits, should you pull them out of school? And what about work for you? Is that vaccine going to be ready? Is it going to be safe? So many questions! And to help me answer them are Dr. Philip Tierno, the director of Clinical Microbiology and Diagnostic Immunology here at the NYU Langone Medical Center and Dr. Norman Edelman, the Chief Medical Officer of the American Lung Association. The Lung Association also has a website called Faces of Influenza which has a lot of information.
And then its time for Ask Dr. Ira, where you can ask me any question you want on any medical topic at all! Give me a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
