Dr. Michael is fantastic!

I love these podcasts. 3 minutes of hard-hitting insight and analysis into contemporary medical issues. Unlike another reviewer, I don't think that the doctor is full of himself; in fact, it is precisely his attitude of trying to make the listener think (rather than just provide the answers himself) that makes this podcast so worthwhile. Keep up the excellent work.

Shallow intellect

I've listened to a few of these now and find the lack of sophistication in them annoying. The ideas are perfectly unobjectionable, but they're presented as though Wilkes thinks he's making brilliant, insightful, even brave, points when it's actually all pretty immature and obvious in its complexity. Which is great if the TV show "House" is your idea of serious medicine. I just don't think simplistic entertainment industry doctors like Wilkes who are more about vanity than knowledge serve the public well.

Great Site

KCRWs Second Opinion Podcast is a brief weekly podcast delivered by Dr. Michael Wilkes. The podcast I reviewed discussed the importance of paying attention to tests before patients are discharged from a hospital setting. The physician cites scientific research to support his commentary. The host delivers concise information that consumers and healthcare professionals will find useful.

Another podcast I reviewed was on the issue of nurses going on strike. I am in the nursing profession so I found this podcast especially relevant. The doctor asks some tough questions surrounding this topic. He brings his professional and personal thoughts to the forefront on this difficult topic. He doesnt strive to give answers, but rather to stimulate questions that each individual involved in this debate must examine for themselves.
