Doctors are always so professional... but do they cry? Oh, yes they do; especially in very dire situations.Do doctors cry? Oh, yes they do, especially when they lose a patient they couldn't save, or have a patient who just will not change their destructive behavior. Those feelings and more are documented in the book, What Doctors Feel, by physician Dr. Danielle Ofri, MD. Dr. Ofri counters the idea that physicians are assumed to be objective, rational beings, who are easily able to detach as they guide patients and families through some of life's most challenging moments. But doctors' emotional responses to the life-and-death dramas of everyday practice, she contends, have a profound impact on medical care. And while much has been written about the minds and methods of the medical professionals who save our lives, precious little has been said about their emotions. In What Doctors Feel, Dr. Ofri has taken on the task of dissecting the hidden emotional responses of doctors and how these directly influence patients.

The HPV vaccine could save your son or daughter's life. So why are many teens not getting it?HPV, or human papillomavirus, is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases today. In fact, in the U.S., there are more than 20 million people affected with HPV. Back in 2006, the first vaccination against HPV was approved by the FDA. This vaccine helps prevent contracting HPV, which can eventually lead to cancers of the cervix, vulva, vagina, penis, anus, and oropharynx. While the vaccine initially targeted teenage girls and young women, the CDC now recommends that teenage boys get vaccinated as well. So why are more and more people, especially young teenage girls, NOT getting vaccinated? One reason may be the stigma around a vaccine which prevents an STD. Parents don't like to think of their teenage boys and girls having sex. Another reason may be the growing distrust of vaccines in general. However, research has shown the the HPV vaccine is completely safe from long-term side effects. In this segment, special guest Dr. Jenice Forde-Baker, MD, shares helpful information about the HPV virus and vaccine. If you have kids, even as young as nine years old, this interview is not to be missed.
