Two Local Doctors Discuss Obamacare10/08/12 Robert Lorei
Last Call Monday | Listen to this entire show:
Good afternoon, Welcome to the Last Call. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up on the first part of todayâ€™s program weâ€™ll talk about the Affordable Care Act with two local doctors and weâ€™ll take your phone calls. Our guests are both with Doctorâ€™s For America -- a national movement of physicians and medical students working together to improve the health of the nation and to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, high quality health care."
Our guests are: Dr. Mona V. Mangat is an allergist and immunologist in St. Petersburg at Bay Area Allergy & Asthma. She wrote this exclusively for the Tampa Bay Times.
Dr. Sujatha(Suzie) Prabhakaran is Vice President of Medical Affairs and Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida based in Sarasota, Fl. Additionally, she practices as gynecologic surgeon at the Bay Pines VA Medical Center and is an Affiliate Asst. Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of South Florida
Op-ed piece for the Tampa Bay Times last weekâ€”you talked about a 50 year old womanâ€”who has been a guest here on WMNF before and who happens to be my producer on my WEDU TV program Florida This Week. Ginaâ€”had been without health insurance for five years. The insurance company she signed with treated he as if being a woman was a pre-existing conditionâ€”therefore they didnâ€™t have to cover her health problemsâ€¦.
