Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show discussing the death of former astronaut Neal Armstrong. Who died on the operating table from complications during a heart bypass procedure. Doc outlines other famous people who have died during "routine procedures". Citing statistics of medical mistakes that occur every year that take patients lives.

 

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news story regarding a patient refused treatment by her primary care physician. Dr. Helen Carter has started turning away patients who weigh more than 200 pounds. Citing the health of her office workers as the reason. Also contending that there is an obesity clinic at a local university that is better equiped to deal with obese patients. The AMA says this practice is not illegal nor is it unethical.
