Dr. Daniel Cameron will be joining us to talk about Lyme Disease and a new report that says that Lyme may be about 10 times as prevalent as previously thought. And its not just we North-easterners that are affected...find out about how tick born disease affects the whole country.
Nails. No, not Lenny Dykstra and not the metal kind: the ones at the end of your digits (in my next career I would like to have a home repair show, however). What can cause them to become diseased? Join me and fellow Doctor Radio Show host and dermatologist Dr. Doris Day as we talk about the nail. So simple, and yet so much stuff can go wrong?
Nail questions...give me a buzz at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
We will have a whole hour of Digestive Disease Update and Ask Doctor Ira following this. Our phones, just like my regular office, have been crazy throughout the summer and we want everyone to get a chance to ask me any questions on any medical topic at all...give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS. Or tweet me 140 characters of medical goodness to @doctorira.

Why do kids always complain about going back to school? Let me rephrase that...why do kids always seem to get belly aches when its time to go back to school? Join me and Pediatric Gastroenterologist Dr. Joseph Levy as we help you figure out whether that stomach ache is just the back to school blah's or whether its something more serious. Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

Here I am, at the beach. Very nice, but full of bugs, bees and other creepy, crawly things. Join me and Dr. David Golden, a faculty member at Johns Hopkins University and the head of the insect hypersensitivity section of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology as we talk about the (???) rise in insect bites and stings and severe reactions to them.
Worried about bug bites and bee stings? Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.
After this, we will have Gastroenterology Update, where I will tell you some of the latest and greatest news in the world of digestive disease and answer your quesitons at 1-877-NYU-DOCS! You can tweet me as well!
Whenever I travel abroad I tend to go supermarkets (greatest discovery: triple decker Oreos in Argentina well before they were available here). While it may not be museums, it is interesting. One thing I've noticed is that most countries have very official looking "Gluten Free" labeling. The United States doesn't. Or didn't. Join me and Joslin Diabetes Center Dietician Laurie Higgins as we review new FDA guidelines on gluten free labeling.
We will end the show, as always, with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me anything about any medical topic at all...anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me! Give me a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

We spend a lot of time during the show talking about bacteria and the gut. Heck, I spend a lot of time in the office talking about the gut-bacteria connection. But, despite this new interest in bacteria, one of the most interesting thing about our intestines is this: they have their own nervous system. Join me as we welcome back Dr. Gary Mawe of the University of Vermont as we talk about this.
Find out about how the nervous system of your intestine may affect everything from bowel movements to gallbladder function. Give us a call with your questions to 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
After that we will expand the conversation with Gastroenterology Update. Not just the nervous system...the whole GI tract. Call or tweet me your questions on all things digestive to 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Summer. Sports. Pain. Back Pain. I've been seeing people with lower back pain all summer and the epidemic sees no signs of abating. Although most people get better with some rest and an anti-inflammatory, for some it can be a big deal. Join me and Dr. David Kloth of Connecticut Pain Care as we talk about what you can do for this problem.
We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any medical question on any topic at all: anything you forgot to ask your doctor, ask me! Give me a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS or send me a tweet!
