Our doctor hosts, Jean Luc Neptune, MD and Mark Lewis, MD, share their medical knowledge in a fun, lighthearted chat while also getting to the root of the “question of the day.” They will discuss a range of topics covering everything from complex health issues to the absurdity of drug commercials. The doctors will also share healthcare hacks, insider insurance tips, and mean tweets from their personal social media accounts. JL and Mark are the doctor friends that you always wished you had and now, you do!

Great listen and very informative
I have really enjoyed listening to Drs. Mark and “JL” on the “Is It Serious?” podcast. I find it very interesting to go behind the scenes with them as they reveal what’s really going on in every day healthcare. Their tips and hacks are also vey useful, including the one about calling the doctors office to look for late cancellations - that’s brilliant. In any case, great job guys and I look forward to more.
Dynamic hosts & great topical listen!
Love listening to both Drs Mark and JL provide their thought-provoking takes on thorny and topical medical news and issues.
They’ve got a great back-and-forth demeanor, and I always end each episode feeling more knowledgeable — and entertained — than I did before. Going through the back catalogue now to see what I missed.
Keep up the great work!
This light hearted podcast is filled with many laughs and tons of information. The episodes are filled with information that I never knew. It is a must listen to podcast. I look forward to Thursday’s.
