Detroit, MI (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
After airing in Detroit and California to wide acclaim, Ask Dr Nandi, a new health TV talk show, completes 64 episodes with 100 shows to be finished by the end of 2012.
Ask Dr. Nandi is a physician talk show shot in the host's home town of Detroit, Michigan. The show aims to reach patients with REAL medical problems and provide REAL medical solutions. Unlike other medical shows, it offers more than a sound bite and is not sensationalized as it discusses only one medical topic per episode. “We talk about a problem in detail for people so they understand it and know how to resolve it,” says Partha Nandi MD. “This show offers real solutions. We like to say, ‘we’ll go there’ and we will! We’re not afraid to tell the truth.”
Nandi works alongside his wife, Kali Nandi, who is the producer of the show. As a husband and wife team, they hope to revitalize Detroit by eventually filming Ask Dr. Nandi downtown, attaching a studio to a free clinic for those in need. An example would be to film an episode on low vision with an ophthalmologist who would then help give eye exams for the rest of the day. “We want to leave a footprint on this Earth, and really help those in need,” says Nandi.
The show has diverse topics from SIDS to Bullying to the effects of Multiple Concussions. The episodes feature the Detroit-based physician, Dr. Partha Nandi, who states “I want patients to know the truth about their care,” says Nandi. “If you feel you’re not being heard, please get another opinion. Be an advocate for your own care; this includes fighting for appropriate care from your insurance plan.”
Dr. Partha Nandi practices in metro Detroit. Born in Calcutta, India, he immigrated to the United States as a child and completed high school by age 16. He attended Ohio State University on a full scholarship, graduating summa cum laude with a degree in chemistry and classical Greek civilization. Nandi was both the Rhoades scholar representative and Homecoming King at Ohio State.
“I became a physician because I want to be there when someone’s world stops – I want to help people when they are most vulnerable and help them recover fully,” says Dr. Nandi. “I always tell the truth about a medical condition and work hard to ensure my patients fully understand their problem. My goal with this TV show is to eliminate intimidation and fear from health care and put the power in the hands of the patients.”
Dr. Nandi obtained his medical degree from Wayne State University, where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society and graduated in the top of his class. His internal medicine training took place at Wayne, where he was intern of the year; he completed his gastroenterology fellowship at the University of Michigan.
Dr. Nandi speaks nationally about health and medicine, educating physicians and patients, and serving as a patient advocate, promoting empathy in care and comprehensive, integrated treatment. He is married and the father of two children. His approach is widely known as “honest medicine,” offering straight talk with patients so they have all the information they need to make informed decisions about their health.
