Monday, December 17th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio!
Happy Holidays! Its been busy in the office and its busy at home. The holidays are a great time to have a great time, but, as they used to say on "Hill Street Blues," be careful out there.
It wouldn't be the holidays without gastroesophageal reflux. Join me and Dr. Seth Gross, the Director of Endoscopy here at NYU, as we talk about new endoscopic technology for the treatment of one of the more serious complications of GERD: Barrett's esophagus.
Heartburn? Barrett's? Worried? Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
But it can't be all about sickness on Doctor Radio! Join me and the folks from Mixellany as we talk about the history of alcohol. Yes, learn the science of the martini, the chemistry of caprihana and the physics of the Long Island Iced Tea (it proves gravity correct!).
Dietician Rachel Begun will be joining us after that. The holidays provide vast opportunities for eating...and, unfortunately, sickness. Although we think of the summer as the time for food born illness, it can happen anytime.
Holiday food prep questions? Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
We will end the show, as usual, with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any question on any medical topic at all...whatever you forgot to ask your doctor, ask me! Give me a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.
