What is your doctor REALLY telling you? Science, pseudoscience and medicine.

Dr Anthony Maloof is a Sydney based specialist surgeon. Following completion of training in Ophthalmology, Dr Maloof branched into Subspecialty fields of Cornea transplantation, Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive surgery. He has appointments at the Prince of Wales Hospital and Sydney Eye hospitals and works in private practice in Sydney.
Anthony is a fierce proponent of science based medicine, a strong advocate of science, and an equally strong critic of the poor communication that exists between science and the humanities.
What influences your doctor in their decision making? What influences the advice and recommendations that they give you? How rational is their decision making? How do pharmaceutical companies propagate information about their products to your benefit or detriment? These questions and more will be addressed.
The religious pray for miracles but Dr Maloof performs them, like the corneal transplant below.
