Monday, November 23rd on the Doctor Ira Breite Show, Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio!
Happy Thanksgiving. Like many of you, I will be heading (very) far from my home for the holidays, which got me thinking about some of the things that can affect you when you travel.
The eyes! I started thinking out how important it was to see all of those other cars moving really slowly on the Interstate with you as you attempted to get where you were going. Then I started thinking about how Thanksgiving was when we all saw family, which pretty much means that every single thing wrong with any of you gets pointed out by that great aunt who just, well, does that. So Dr. Emily Ceisler, a pediatric ophthalmologist here in NYC will be here to talk about Strabismus (lazy eye) and other assorted pediatric muscle eye disorders. We will also be talking about common pediatric eye problems such as trauma (which always seems to happen on the holidays!)
If you've ever wondered about patches, glasses or surgery for kids with lazy eyes, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.
Although the weather has been quite warm here in NYC, its starting to snow in the Northwest and Thanksgiving often announces the beginning of winter. And carrying all of those suitcases can't do wonders for your body. Anesthesiologist and Pain Management Specialist Dr. David Kloth of Connecticut Pain Care in Danbury will be joining us to speak about how to keep that snow shovel from causing you a problem and what to do if its already too late!
If you are having chronic back pain problems and can't control it easily give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Our second hour begins with Keri Gans, registered dietitian and spokesperson for the ADA, coming in to talk about comfort foods and what you can do to be comfortable and healthy this Thanksgiving.
Call us with your questions or answers about Healthy Thanksgiving eating at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
We will end the show, as usual, with ask Dr. Ira, where I can answer all of your questions about any medical problems: as an internist its my job to know a little about everything an point you in the right direction. Also, H1N1 update!
