    Chat with Dr Robert Yoho - Retired Cosmetic Surgeon & Author

    Chat with Dr Robert Yoho - Retired Cosmetic Surgeon & Author

    A fascinating chat with the retired plastic surgeon and former emergency physician Dr Robert Yoho. Robert gives his take on the medical world, focusing on the global pandemic that swept the nation and left us all in a fog of dismay. An open talk on the pharmaceuticals that made billions from medical research, topics in this show include the theory of conspiracies and where the public reside within the chaos that plagued the world. Dr Robert Yoho is disturbed by the events and feels his place is to inform the public as he continues to be the ‘whistle blower’ in the world of medics.  The pandemic may be over for most of us, but facts dictate that control continues behind the scenes. Robert has a wealth of knowledge and will shock you as he mentions Greenpeace being a sociopathic organisation. It was fascinating to hear him speak of the corruption behind the medical world leading to topics on the psychology of desiring plastic surgery, hormonal drugs for transgender changes and finally, big boobs get your attention but are definitely not always the answers to the root cause.
