Monday, June 18th, 2012 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio!

I am back from vacation and raring to go.  We have a great show planned.

Starting with vacation disease, of course.  Join me, microbiologist and Director of Clinical Microbiology and Immunology and NYU Medical Center Dr. Phillip Tierno as we talk to the author of "Teenage Waistland: A Former Fat Kid Weighs in on Living Large, Losing Weight, and how Parents Can (And Can't) Help" Abby Ellin about her recent trip and what joined her on the way home!

Traveling this are not going to want to miss what Dr. Tierno and Ms. Ellin have to say.
Questions about travel bugs...give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

After that its time for Gastroenterology update.  I received some great questions on email at while i was on vacation...we'll go over those, as well as taking your digestive disease questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.  Of course, you can always follow me on twitter at @doctorira and find and follow me that way too!

If you've ever had a sick parent or child,  you know how difficult it can be to navigate the healthcare system.  If you're the patient, it can be even more difficult to figure out the correct thing to do.  Martine Ehrenclou, MA, the author of "Critical Conditions," has written a new book, "The Take-Charge Patient," addressing her issues dealing with the health care system and telling you how to find the right doctor, the right treatment,  and get what you need done done!

We'll end the show, as always, with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any questions on any medical topic at all:it doesn't matter what it is...anything you forgot to ask your doctor, ask me at 1-877-NYU DOCS!
