Emmy award winning Dr. Bruce Hensel; called by many the pre-eminent medical Health and Science Journalist in the country is mad as hell and he will NOT let you take it any more. Bringing three decades of media know-how to his new radio show, this nationally acclaimed Host is giving America peace of mind with a much-needed wake-up call... and a swift kick in the pants.
Dr. Bruce chose this path many years ago because of a deeply felt personal experience: a brother lost because of a senseless misdiagnosis from a pediatrician, and parents left bewildered and helpless. Now he’s helping others avoid similar tragedies.
At a time when we’re living longer and there are more medical tests and treatments than ever before, health care should be easier to get, less expensive and easier to understand. The exact opposite is true. Conflicting health headlines and Doctors who are hard to reach or don’t keep up with changes in medicine compound the problem. Although a growing number of people try to use the system and sift through the glut of information they often end up being victimized by poor communication, a lack of understanding or by overworked medical professionals and insurance companies.
100,000 people die from medical mistakes each year; nearly 50 million people don’t have health insurance. 10.7 million adults are unable to work because of health problems.
Dr. Bruce’s ability to empathize and explain and his extensive Medical experience (as a full Professor of Medicine board certified in two specialties) are peppered with his unique brand of tough-love Medical advice to motivate listeners to take charge of their health; avoid charlatans, quacks and mistakes; to get the best medical care and use the system to their best advantage while spending the least money.
From personal stories to Medical controversies and rip-offs; from Scientific fact and mystery to home remedies and alternative medicine; from health insurance dilemmas to life-threatening illnesses, solutions and cutting edge treatments...
He will save lives. He will make a difference.
He will cut through the muck; demystify medicine and empower people with the information they need to make the right choices and live long, healthy, vibrant lives.
