Monday, November 9th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Doctor Radio: Sirius 114 and XM 119

We have a great show in store for everyone tomorrow.

Insomnia is one of the most common problems that we encounter in the office. Complaint's about snoring (either your own or your significant others) is right up there as well. There are a ton of medications out there for sleeping, ranging from over the counter products to highly controlled substances....what do they do, and what should you? Join Dr. Joyce Walsleben, a Board Certified Medicine Specialist and a member of Sleep Medicine Associates of NYC and the co-author of the book, "A Woman's Guide to Sleep," as she tells us about this very common problem.

Can't Sleep? Have Questions? Call us at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

Its the beginning of disease season in the office. After the quiet of the summer, and the check ups of September and October, November brings with it the beginning of "sick" season in the office. One of the more common complaints is an eye infection. The question is, what do you do about pink eye? Join me and ophthalmologist Dr. Robert Cykiert as we talk about pink eye in both children and adults!

If you have ever wondered about your scratchy, red eyes, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

Part of being a good physician is trying to learn as much as possible about what's going on out there, even if it is not always "traditional" medicine. Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PhD, the author of "Anti-Cancer: A New Way of Life," a book he wrote based on his own experiences with a malignant brain tumor at the age of 31. After the cancer recurred, he used his medical training to explore how to best prevent cancer.

If you have ever wondered about alternative treatments for you or a loved one, this would be a great time to call us at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

Of course, we will end the show with "Ask Doctor Ira," where you can ask me any medical question on any topic at all. Plus, supplies willing, I will be getting my H1N1 immunization on the air as a testament to its importance!!!

Call me with any medical question at all at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!!!!
