I'm back! We have a great show planned for you Monday, with lots of Gastroenterology in kids and adolescents , some internal medicine and a whole lot of Ask Dr. Ira for you.


Celiac Disease is a growing problem in the United States.

As an adult gastroenterologist, I spend a lot of time taking care of people with inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Many of the patients that I take care of were originally diagnosed as children or adolescents. Joining me to talk about the diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease in kids is Doctor Robert Baldassano, the Director of the Center of Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Parkinson's disease...its scary. So news that regularly used pain killers may prevent this disease is a big deal! Join me and NYU Neurology Professor Dr. Alessandro DiRocco, the head of our Parkinson's disease center, to talk about this exciting new study. We will also answer your questions on the prevention and treatment of all sorts of movement disorders!
