Dr. A Show 32: Kevin MD & Dr. Val

BlogTalkRadio Listen Live

Thursday, April 24th, 2008 at 9pm Eastern Time

Join us tonight for The Doctor Anonymous Show . Isn't it great how things come together? Two days ago, I had zero scheduled guests. But, how things change almost overnight... (See video post above)

I'm very happy to announce that Kevin MD will be back on the show to talk about his 4/23/08 USA Today Op-Ed piece entitled "Wasted Medical Dollars" talking about the reality of the practice of defensive medicine. As of this posting, there are already about 30 total comments on Kevin's site and on the USA Today site. Interesting discussion.

Normally, that would be enough for one show. But, wait, there's more! Dr. Val will also be joining the show at some point to discuss a bunch of things. First, Revolution Health is celebrating their one year anniversary and she was part of the festivities on that. Second, last week, she interviewed the former US surgeon general and that interview will be going up on her site soon. Finally, she hosted Grand Rounds this week. Sheesh! I'm tired just reading this. So, hopefully, she'll be updating us on how here week has been going.

Here are some other things that we may talk about:
*Hilarious post from Aggravated DocSurg called "We Don't Speak the Same Lingo"
*Clinical Cases and Images blog asks "Has Blogging Peaked?"
*Awake in Rochester wonders "What Do You Do When Someone Blogs About You?"
*My post about Preventing Prostate Cancer. Ugh.

You can even take part in the chat room. It is truly "The show within the show." You can even call in and say hello. A great opportunity to interact with medbloggers you've only read about. See you later!

For first time Blog Talk Radio listeners:
*Although it is not required to listen to the show, I encourage you to register on the BlogTalkRadio site prior to the show. I think it will make the process easier.

*To get to my show site, click here. As show time gets closer, keep hitting "refresh" on your browser until you see the "Click to Listen" button. Then, of course, press the "Click to Listen" button.

*You can also participate in the live chat room before, during, and after the show. Look for the "Chat Available" button in the upper right hand corner of the page. If you are registered with the BTR site, your registered name and picture will appear in the chat room.

*You can also call into the show. The number is on my show site. I'll be taking calls beginning at around the bottom of the hour. Hope these tips are helpful!
