    What to Know About Preventing the Second Deadliest Cancer

    What to Know About Preventing the Second Deadliest Cancer

    Farid Razavi, MD, joins us this week on the Tell Me More Podcast. He’s a gastroenterologist and passionate advocate for spreading awareness about colon cancer.
    The bottom line of Dr. Razavi’s message is clear: colon cancer is entirely preventable, and it's crucial that we work together to spread the word about screening.
    A colonoscopy is the primary screening procedure for colon cancer. We encourage all listeners to discuss screening with their primary care physician. Routine colon cancer screening should start at age 45 for people without a family history. If no polyps are found during your colonoscopy, the next screening is typically scheduled for 10 years later.
    For those with a family history of colon cancer, the first colonoscopy should be scheduled at age 40 or 10 years earlier than the age at which the first-degree family member (parent, sibling) was diagnosed, whichever comes first.
    Regular screenings are recommended between the ages of 45 and 75.
    To learn more, watch this video of Dr, Meyer as she completes the prep, undergoes her first colonoscopy procedure, and receives the results: https://youtu.be/vZoZ3nzt51M
    April 4 is the Colon Cancer Awareness Day Screening event as mentioned in the closing minutes of today’s podcast. You can learn more about Dr. Razavi and the screening event here:

    What Not to Say When Talking to Patients About Their Weight

    What Not to Say When Talking to Patients About Their Weight

    How we talk to patients about their weight is unquestionably a very sensitive subject and needs to be handled with precision. Words matter significantly in patient communication, and outcomes often depend on proper communication.
    This week, we're talking with award-winning author Michelle May, MD, CSP. In addition to her popular "Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat" book series, she co-authored the 2022 article, "The Consequences of a Weight-Centric Approach to Healthcare: A Case for a Paradigm Shift in How Clinicians Address Body Weight," in Nutrition in Clinical Practice, a highly respected peer-reviewed medical journal.
    How to have better weight-centric conversations in healthcare is the theme of today’s chat. Dr. May highlights many of the flaws in our current approach, emphasizing the harm caused by weight bias and the need for a shift towards a weight-inclusive perspective.

    Patients Deserve Better Than an 'A.I. Doctor in a Box' at the Mall (No, Seriously!)

    Patients Deserve Better Than an 'A.I. Doctor in a Box' at the Mall (No, Seriously!)

    According to Forbes, an artificial intelligence-based bot is set to appear in local shopping malls in the form of a "doctor in a box," to which we emphatically say, "no thank you!"
    This week on our Tell Me More Podcast, we delve into the concerning emergence of the "Doctor in a Box," an AI-driven healthcare concept discussed by podcast producer, Casey Callanan and Dr. Christine Meyer.
    This podcast interview was a direct reaction to an alarming article that Dr. Meyer recently read on Forbes.com with the headline, "An AI Doctor In A Box Coming To A Mall Near You." You can read the Forbes article here:
    https://www.forbes.com/sites/katiejennings/2023/11/15/an-ai-doctor-in-a-box-coming-to-a-mall-near-you/?sh=19547d9d4284
    Expressing deep reservations, Dr. Meyer questions the value and efficacy of automated medical care, emphasizing the irreplaceable human connection in healthcare. She criticizes the devaluation of primary care, urging investment in human-centered healthcare over impersonal AI solutions.
    The discussion also touches on the role of patients in advocating for quality care, emphasizing the need for open communication and patient-centric practices.
    Dr. Meyer reveals her practice's commitment to accessible healthcare, working extended hours to meet patient needs. The conversation ends with a call to reconsider the direction of healthcare, valuing the importance of personal relationships in medicine.
