TOMMOROW on The Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius Doctor Radio, 114!

Its been a lousy week for the financial markets, and a hard week for those of us who live in the City of New York.  You can feel the stress in the air.  It has been a good time for therapists here, as many people are using the last of their dollars to try to get their heads back in order.  So I am really happy that tomorrow I will be interviewing Carol Bernstein, MD, psychiatrist and the associate Dean for Education at the NYU School of Medicine.  We will be talking about stress and money, and what you can do about it.

We will be taking calls on this issue, so get yours ready. (8 to 8:30 AM)

I also plan to have Dr. Ralph Sacco, the Chairman of Neurology at the University of Miami Medical Center on the air with Dr. Glenn Jacobowitz, a the Vice Chief of vascular surgery here at the  NYU-Langone Medical Center.   All this stress is making some people feel like they are going to have a stroke!  We'll be talking about strokes, stroke prevention, and a new awareness campaign for strokes: Give me Five For Stroke.  

If you have any questions at all about strokes, stroke prevention, or mini-strokes (TIAs) give us a call at 1 877 NYU DOCS.    (8:30 to 9 AM)

If you want to send us an email, you can go to the Doctor Radio website directly.

Then we will have an hour of open phones, interesting medical chat, and tales of the internist's (thats me) office.  Some interesting stuff I've been seeing include Celiac Sprue (bizarre and interesting), new guidelines for colon polyp prevention (maybe???) and kidney failure from a commonly used over the counter drug.  Depending on time, we'll get to those, and of course, any questions you have on any medical topic whatsoever! (9 AM to 10 AM)

I hope you'll tune in!
