The Mentor of Mentors

Calling all medical students or anyone just looking for a good story on mentorship, this episode is for you. Dr. Cohen’s mentor, Dr. Leo Gordon, joins the show!

Dr. Gordon explains how doctors were trained differently when he first started and how some of his experiences were relatable to the book House of God.

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.

And the New Year Begins…

In our latest episode, we talk about Dr. Dre being admitted to the hospital for a brain aneurysm, how the U.S. went from 96 thousand people that used telehealth in 2019 to 18 million who used it in 2020, why the book Ready Player One is relevant, the surgeon stereotype the TV show Scrubs gets right and more!

People of the Year

Dr. Cohen gives us some updates about what he’s seeing at the hospital. Then, we review People magazine’s four ‘People of the Year’ — George Clooney, Regina King, Dr. Anthony Fauci & Selena Gomez.

We also decide on another person (the most noncontroversial character we could think of) who should be on the list for providing a lot of happiness this year.

Ask the Urologist

For the first time, we have a urologist on the show — Dr. Justin Houman! We ask Dr. Houman our most pressing questions about urology and men’s health. Questions include… When to see a urologist? What’s the success rate of vasectomies? What can be done about frequent urination? And even more topics, like testicular and prostate cancer, penile prosthesis surgery and erectile dysfunction.

Klapper Vision

Dr. Robert Klapper, host of ESPN’s Weekend Warrior radio show and a renown orthopedic surgeon, joins us on the podcast! Dr. Klapper tells us how a kid from Far Rockaway got into an Ivy League school and how an art history class completely changed his life. He also explains why he became a Lakers fan and why people want him to explain sports injuries using his acclaimed Klapper Vision.
