Monday, July 18th on The Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius XM 81: Doctor Radio

I hope everyone is doing well. We have a great show planned for this Monday, as the summer continues to heat up!

Allergies! Now that we have survived hayfever season, its food and insect allergy season! And it doesn't have to be spicy peanut shrimp basted in glutenous batter and covered by honey and bee stingers: even a small amount of an allergen can lead to a severe reaction. Join me and Gwen Smith, the editor of Allergic Living Magazine, as we talk about safe ways for those with food and insect allergies to enjoy summer living!

Call us with your allergy questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

Then, its time for gastroenterology update. I'm not sure why (maybe its all that outdoor living), but the summer always brings with it a fare share of reflux and ulcer disease. We will be discussing (amongst other things):
