The House Call Doctor, hosted by Dr. Rob Lamberts, joins the highly successful "Quick and Dirty Tips" iTunes podcasts on July 14, with free content also available for download at www.quickanddirtytips.com.
How can I lower my cholesterol? Is Tylenol really safe? Why do my bruises itch? No topic is off limits for the House Call Doctor—the newest addition to Macmillan’s Quick and Dirty Tips self-improvement franchise. Dr. Rob Lamberts practices full-time in his primary care private practice in the southeastern US. He is board certified in internal medicine and pediatrics, and has doctored for the past 15 years. Lamberts’ recent involvement in the advocacy of electronic medical records has received national recognition and his popular medical blog, Musings of a Distractible Mind, was named one of Tara Parker-Pope’s “favorite medical blogs” in her New York Times Well blog.
With his trademark sense of humor and straightforward advice, Dr. Lamberts answers a wide variety of questions in this QDT podcast, mixing his extensive experience in the medical field with accessible advice that is both accurate and easy to understand. Filled with friendly and in-depth answers on listeners’ most pressing health issues, House Call Doctor offers progressive and innovative ways to look at medicine and the healthcare industry as a whole.
The House Call Doctor’s first series of podcasts will cover a wide range of health concerns and medical inquiries, including:
- What do I really need to know about cholesterol?
- How do I talk to my doctor about medical information I’ve found on the Internet?
- Where do bruises come from, and how can I get rid of them?
- What are the dangers of using popular pain relievers, such as Tylenol?
- What should I look out for to prevent the over use of antibiotics?
Dr. Lamberts’ expert tips will give listeners the tools they need to understand their bodies better and improve their health and quality of life. His goal with the House Call Doctor is to “make medical things easier to understand and hopefully to offer a little entertainment in the process.” As Dr. Lamberts says, “People want to understand their health, but unfortunately many of the explanations out there are either confusing or boring.”
