“Dr. Archelle Georgiou helps our viewers sift through the good, the bad, and the indifferent medical information by going beyond the headlines. Digging past the obvious to get to the most important information, and then articulating the information in a way that can be understood by non-medical professionals. Maybe more importantly she educates our viewers why they need to be, and how they can be, their own healthcare advocates. Anyone willing to listen to what Dr. Georgiou can teach us will not be disappointed.”
