Rarely any useful medical info given - don't waste an hour on this!
I'm only wasting the time to post this review so you don't waste your time watching the show.
During the entire hour, there might be one or two somewhat interesting and helpful stories but most segments are for shock value, concerning extremely rare diseases or horrible things that have happened to a guest for us to gawk at like an accident on the side of the highway. Almost every episode includes some poor soul with severely decayed teeth, but if you don't watch the show religiously for months on end, you'll never get to see the amazing transformation when the dental services were offered for free. Or some other poor sap with maggots in his ear. You get the gist.
It's very "tabloidish" and voyeuristic. They include many things that have nothing to do with medicine such as celebrity news, and tips on fashion and applying makeup. A great deal of time is spent on issues that are barely medical ones, such as cosmetic procedures. The show has a lot of fillers such as long promos before every commercial break to let us know what's coming up. Often, the clip shown is not even seen in the story! If you were to record it and edit out all the fluff, there would be less than 20 minutes of actual show left.
The hosts shout a lot, constantly talk over each other, and interrupt each other, which is extremely annoying. They act like total goofs, not like doctors. Dr. Ordin is the most redundant host, and it's hard to take him seriously with that fake tan.
There is a reason why this ridiculous show has received mostly very negative reviews in here. Instead of repeating the same complaints, just read the other reviews!
