Dr. Magda Coming Back Fall 2023!!

Can’t wait to talk with you all again!! 

I am a physician (a medical doctor) and a Geriatrician (specialist in aging WELL) and a Palliative/Supportive Care doctor. Yep, I keep things interesting. I also like to talk about real things.  

Some of the conversations that need to happen aren’t happening,  so I decided to create a podcast to change that. I love talking about “medical” stuff, for sure, but I also like to talk about the really hard stuff, dying, getting sick, getting older, losing people, losing yourself… stuff that’s difficult to deal with during a 15 minute doctor’s visit. I want health care to be more than just the clinical stuff. I want it to be about your lived experience. I want it to mean something more.

I want to know what you care about, what you hope, what you dream, what you are afraid of. And general questions about medicine are ok too. 

Be real with me.
