Has anyone on the Doctors show ever appologized for their terrible show on Aug. 22, Friday re: Ferguson, MO? That show was so out of line I could not believe what I was hearing and seeing. I'm about to give up completely on the show if that's what they think is right. It was so out of line and not appropriate for a medical show. I was unable to watch either Monday or Tuesday and...

I have been watching The Doctors since Day 1.  I faithfully record it everyday and watch it while fixing dinner, exercising, or enjoying my Sunday morning coffee.  This morning I sat down to watch Friday's show and I was so upset after watching the Ferguson segment that I turned it off.  The show did not have all of their facts which was very upsetting. I have repeating many things I have heard on the show...medical...

Re: the new version of the Doctor's site to come this new season

First off ... the Disqus site doesn't work to sign up/in to. Second, this totally SUCKS.  I have worked VERY hard on this site to create all the blogs that I have, comments I've made, and my profile page.  I am out of here/gone though when this new way starts, which really really saddens me because I love watching the show, coming to this site and posting/creating blogs.  I have worked SO HARD here for...

Shame on you. . . Doctors!

I watch the Doctors and count on the information to be factual and helpful.  Today was disappointing!  Not only was the topic of Ferguson, MO inappropriate and poorly done, it was anything but factual or helpful.  In fact, the closing remarks with hands in the air "Hands Up Don't Shoot" was so wrong!  You do not have sufficient information to enter this subject.  Even a discussion about tear-gas would stretch your qualifications to enter the...

Shame on you, Dr. Ross

It's appropriate to have a strong opinion on the situation in Ferguson, MO - nearly everyone does. However, it is completely inappropriate for you to use your position as a contributor to The Doctors as license to force your personal views on an audience who tuned in for MEDICAL information. Dr. Stork repeatedly tried to remind you of your place, which was to discuss the medical repercussions of the crowd control devices law enforcement used...

Why non medical editorial?

Why are the doctors getting into non medical news events?  A kid that happened to be black went in to do a strong arm robbery, and was confronted by a police man.... Who incedently shot him during a confrontation .. You guys on the doctors think that the cop had no right to defend himself??? If this cop was just going around shooting black kids/men then why didn't he shoot this guys friend or other black people...

Victim sues rescuers

I am upset that the doctors have helped feed the stereotype that lawyers are parasites and personal injury cases are frivolous, by airing a video about one man who is allegedly suing his rescuers for not saving him as quickly as he would have liked. Insurance companies have spent millions of dollars in the last 25 years propagandizing the public to be suspicious of injury cases. Imagine that! The companies that many of us must...

I only caught the last few minutes of the show today and saw ZzzQuil as help for sleeping. FWIW, ZzzQuil is just Benadryl (diphenhydramine) but in a higher dose (50 mg).  2 regular benadryl will do the same thing.  If you look at the back of the containers you'll see what I mean.  Only difference is that one is a liquid, and the other are pills.   Melissa.
