About the Podcast
From the layman’s perspective, there is often an air of mysticism surrounding the medical profession. Between fictional super doctors regularly solving exotic medical mysteries on TV and the amplification of unproven pseudo-science through social media, patients often have the perception that their doctors should be able to cure anything—and if they can’t, it’s because they’re trying to suppress the panaceas offered by holistic medicine. Join Steven Taback, MD, as he administers your weekly dose of medical realism. On Medicine, We’re Still Practicing, the good doctor gives you a peek behind the blue curtain to have frank discussions that separate health and wellness reality from fantasy. No topic is off limits, from the insurance industry and universal healthcare to the latest medical advances and all of the quackery and snake oil salesmen you should avoid. However, in accordance with good bedside manner, Taback and his guests from the medical community keep the conversation light and informative.
