A New and Honest Detroit Doctor Show on WADL
Down-to-Earth Dr. Partha Nandi gets real, honest and open with TV guests, viewers about health, life and longevity
DETROIT, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- If there's one message viewers and guests alike will take away from the cutting-edge, conversational new health TV talk show, Ask Dr. Nandi, it's that "you have to be an advocate for your own care."
That's the premise behind Ask Dr. Nandi, a new talk show airing on Wednesdays on WADL. The first episodes focusing on topics like yoga, Celiac disease and childhood obesity and featuring the Detroit-based physician, Dr. Partha Nandi, aired in California to wide acclaim. Now, the show comes to his hometown.
"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."
Every episode of Ask Dr. Nandi focuses on a single health problem. "We talk about a problem in detail for people so they understand it and know how to resolve it," says Nandi. "This show offers real solutions. We like to say, 'we'll go there' and we will! We are not afraid to tell the truth."
Guests include Julie Silver of Acupuncture Healthcare Associates of Michigan; fitness guru Nikki Fayne; dermatologist Dr. Wendy Sadoff; cardiologist Dr. Joel Kahn; and patient Cheryl Grossman, among other guests.
The show airs on WADL, Detroit's Channel 38, on Wednesdays at 11 a.m. Episodes will air in succession throughout the summer.
"I was asked to come on the show to share my story of physical transformation," says Nikki Fayne, who was obese as a child and is now a gorgeous, fit, healthy woman who teaches fitness classes and helps others get fit. "I loved being on the set and filming the show. Dr. Nandi has a gentle approach that is authentic. He is a brilliant man yet so very open in mind and heart. It is unusual for such a genius to also be totally bad ass!"
"It was a pleasure to work with Dr. Nandi, talking about acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine," says Julie Silver. "His combined expertise and interest on a variety of subjects as well as his compassion and interest in the human spirit make him the perfect talk show host! It is very exciting to have his show in the Detroit area and, as important, to feature the wonderful local skills and talent in our area."
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 Rhodes scholar representative and Homecoming King.
"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.
"I want to leave a bigger footprint on this Earth, and really help people," says Nandi, who would one day like to open an urban medical clinic offering care to anyone who walks through the door.
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. Dr. Nandi is married to Kali Nandi (an R.N.) and the father of two children; they live in Sterling Heights. 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.
