Monday, August 25th, 2014, on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio!

Although you would think August is the time of year when everyone goes away, apparently the place they're going is to my show.  We have an excellent lineup of guests.

Douglas Drossman, MD will be joining us to talk about Doctor-Patient Communication and Skills training.  Ever wonder if your doctor is really listening to you? Find out what they can do to do better.  And call us with your 'doctor didn't listen to me' tales at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

Digestive Disease Update follow this.  Learn about some of the latest and greatest news in the world of gastroenterology and have your questions on all things digestive answered at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

We talk a lot about poop on the Doctor Ira Show: its what I do.  But in gastroenterology, the talk has gone from "why do I have problems with my poop" to "what can I actually do with the poop to make people healthier?"  Join me and Dr. David Rubin of the University of Chicago as we talk about the latest in fecal microbial transplant.

We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any question on any medical topic at all and I will be happy to answer it.  Give me a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

Monday, August 11 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor R

Is it to early to start thinking about allergies.  No.  At 8 AM, Dr. Erin McGintee will be joining us (from the Hamptons, no less) to talk about meat allergies, pollen allergies, and heck, allergies all around.  Its a question and answer kind of show and we will start with Dr. McGintee.

After this, we will have extensive office time!  Ask Doctor Ira and Gastroenterology Update for the rest of the show.  Anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me.  We will also go over some of the latest and greatest news in the world of Digestive Disease and medicine.  Some topics:

1) New genetic markers for pancreatic cancer
2) a little bit on excessive belching (yes, we really study that)
3) the role of carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulfide in colonic function (it turns out you need a little of both)

Need your coffee in the morning?  I won't lie: I need mine.  Its the caffeine.  Did you know that there is a whole journal devoted to caffeine research.  Join me and Patricia Broderick, PhD, the editor of the Journal of Caffeine Research, as we put up a cup of joe and talk about the latest research in the world of caffeine.

After that, we will have gastroenterology update, where I will tell you the latest and greatest in the world of digestive disease. Find out about the latest research and have your questions answered at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

Is having a cup of chocolate milk really that good for you after a workout.  What happened to a glass of water and some celery?  Join me and Keri Gans, RD as we talk about the science and reality of nutrition before, during and after a workout.
