8 episodes

Dr. Priyanka Wali is a licensed and practicing physician who specializes in Internal Medicine and is also a stand up comedian. Sean Hayes is NOT a Doctor and he’s never played one on tv, but he sure is interested in medical stories, medical advice and whatever might be ailing him at any given hour. Each episode, Sean and Dr. Wali bring on a guest with an incredible medical story and discuss the outcome. They’ll also play games, quiz each other on medical history, and learn a thing or two... all in an effort to marry comedy and medicine. We think it’s safe to say that Sean’s not America’s first hypochondriac, but he IS America’s first HypochondriACTOR!

Funny & Informative!

I’m laughing and learning at the same
Time! Sean and Dr. Wali are perfectly paired. On the most recent episode, I was blown away to learn my phobia of a cluster of small holes is actually a thing and that I share this with Dr. Wali! I was literally stunned to find out that I’m not the only person with Trypophobia.

Thanks for doing this show and for putting together such interesting topics!
