Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show today discussing Walmart's recent anouncement that they plan to have health cliniics in at least 500 stores soon.  Ultimately planning to have health clinics in all of it's 5000 plus stores.  Doc contends that trends such as this will eventually lead to the end of primary care and family practice doctors.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news story concerning Dr. Robert Jarvik inventor of the first artificial heart.  In the past few years Jarvik has become a spokeman for Pfizer's top selling anti-cholesterol drug Lipitor.  In many ads he is depicted bicycle riding, jogging and rowing a canoe.  Congressional investigators are now saying they believe a body double was used for Jarvik to make him look more athletic.  He also cannot legally prescribe drugs and he is not licensed to pratice medicine.
