Grey’s Anatomy Pilot

As Nutrition Month comes to a close, we talk about how well we did with our diets in March. We also talk about exercise and the the benefits of joining Andy Lassner’s Slow Walk Movement.

Then, Dr. Cohen reviews the pilot episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Yes, we know the show has been on for 17 years, but we are comparing medical pilots and searching for the most accurate and engaging TV show about doctors. In a previous episode we reviewed The Resident so Grey’s Anatomy is our second show to be analyzed by an actual surgeon.

Andy Lassner joins the show!

TV producer Andy Lassner joins the show! Andy and Dr. Cohen discuss growing up together in New York and how that shaped them. Then, Andy tells us how he became a daytime talk show producer and how he overcame his struggle with addiction and is now 22 years sober.

Plus, he tells us how the segment ‘Average Andy’ on The Ellen Show came to be and why his Slow Walk Movement is still going strong.

The Business Side of Being a Doctor

Dr. Abe Malkin has achieved a lot at a young age, which includes getting an MD and MBA, working at Goldman Sachs, starting his own concierge medicine practice, creating a drip hydration business and becoming board certified in Addiction Medicine. So naturally, we ask Dr. Malkin to explain his strategy to leading a successful life.

Plus, Dr. Malkin reveals one of his most interesting concierge calls, details his next business venture and tells us what TV show we should be watching.

Nutrition Month

March is National Nutrition Month — a month to take charge of your health and consider dieting to maintain an ideal weight, which reduces risks of chronic illness such as heart disease and diabetes.

We discuss diets — the fad diets of the past like The Zone Diet and the recent celebrity diets we would consider trying for the month.

Cannabis Based Medicine with Dr. Sherry Yafai

Every January is National CBD Month and why we thought it would be appropriate to revamp a special interview episode from last year with an expert in cannabis based medicine — Dr. Sherry Yafai.

Dr. Yafai is the founder of The Releaf Institute which was created to educate individuals on how to use cannabis products to accomplish their personal goals for medical treatment. She explains the difference in THC and CBD (24 minute mark) and answers our many questions about the medical use of cannabis.
