Life (Part 2)

Dancing With Doctors

Season 2, Episode 4 of 20

The relationship between doctor and patient is an intricate dance that we all need to learn sooner or later. Mayo Clinic physician Michael Brennan, psychologist and cancer survivor Dan Shapiro (author of Mom's Marijuana) and physician Esther M. Sternberg analyze how baby boomers can ensure quality medical treatment for their parents, their kids and themselves. Then, Evan Handler ("Sex and the City") explains how righteous fury and his own brand of enlightened selfishness got him through a deadly illness and set the stage for middle-aged contentment. Emmy Award-winning comedy writer/producer Bill Persky describes his second career as a "maintenance man" ... i. e., a professional patient taking care of his own health.
