Happy Summer! My kids are off to camp, and I am ready for warm weather, good barbecue, and unfortunately, a bit of heartburn.
Which brings us to our show today. Dr. Ryan Madanick, a gastroenterologist specializing in diseases of the esophagus at the University of North Carolina will be joining us. In addition to heartburn, he is also an expert in "stool transplants," or Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) -- also known as fecal bacteriotherapy as we like to call it not to gross out our mom's as to what we GI's actually do for a living.
Call us with your heartburn questions (and stool transplant questions) at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Then, its time for Gastroenterology Update, where I will review some of the latest headlines in GI and answer your stomach, colon and liver questions...
You can see some of the headlines by following me on Twitter! Having said that, coffee drinkers will rejoice with this segment!

Summer is grilling time, but if your a middle aged guy, its hard to grill and stay fit at the same time. Join me and Holistic Dietitian Rachel Lerner as we learn how to get your grill on while staying healthy!
Grilling questions! Diet Questions! Can you have the first tasty while not looking like you should be prime fatty beef yourself? Call us at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any questions on any medical topic at all...anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me...at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

I am back from vacation and ready for tomorrow's show! The show is about coming back and leaving.
First, the coming back. Dr. Kimberly Deore, the former host of Doctor Radio's Tuesday Morning Show, moved to Germany last year. But she is back (at least for the day). She will join me for a full hour as we talk about parenting and doctoring, general medical issues, whether you can be a good mom (or dad) and a doctor, and more.
Call us with any questions you have at 1-877-NYU-DOCS. Or tweet me @doctorira or doctor radio at @nyudocs.
Its the end of the school year! Graduations for some, and for some of us, CAMP! Yes, its that time of year when my children go away for seven weeks, leaving me and my wife as temporary empty nesters. Join me and psychologist and marriage expert Dr. Charles Schmitz as we talk about keeping your marriage strong throughout the years!
Call us with your relationship questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any questions on any medical topic at all and I will be glad to answer. Give us a call with your questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
