What Would YOU Ask Your Doctor Friend?

You may be thinking, “what the health is going on here?!”. We've made some changes, and we are SO excited to tell you all about them! Behold our rebrand as, “Your Doctor Friends”. 

Why the rebrand? We want to make it clear that we can sub-in as your doctor friends that you would text a burning question to if you only had our numbers…

It’s so great to have friends in different fields of expertise that we can depend on for instant trusted advice. A doctor friend is no different!. It’s hard to know where to turn for valid, unbiased, evidence-based medical information. That’s where we come in! And when we don't know, WE ASK OUR FRIENDS (and make them record a pod episode with us :)

We want you to submit your medical questions so we can address them here on this podcast to give you informed advice you would get if you were talking to your doctor friend.

So don’t be shy, all questions are welcome. Even if they are about pee pee/poo poo things, which is what a lot of our family and friends submitted for us to cover on today’s episode, among other hilarious, yet common, questions.

Tune in to today’s episode for tips on how not to tan your taint and a plethora of pee/poo questions and answers. Also, don’t forget to submit your questions by heading to our Facebook page provided below!

Dr. Julie (Julia if we’re being formal, Julia Rose if she’s in trouble) Bruene is a sports medicine physician at Midwest Orthopaedics at RUSH, a renowned, nationally-ranked orthopedic practice in Chicago. She serves as a team physician for the Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bulls, and DePaul University. Aside from her obvious interests in sports and medicine, she is a true crime obsessive and is a total sucker for rescued cats. She lives in Chicago with her husband and partner-in-crime, Adam, and with several of the aforementioned rescued cats. We don’t need to get into specifics about the exact number here. She likes when people are kind to one another and when animals dress up like other animals. Rock over London, rock on Chicago.
