"When my own father came down with cardiovascular problems, Dr. Fratellone was the physician I called." --Ann Louise Gittleman, PhD., author of New York Times bestsellers Fat Flush Plan and Before the Change. Integrated Cardiologist Patrick Fratellone, M.D., has noticed an alarming trend of treating health problems with ever-new-and-evolving drugs--often without regard to potentially dangerous side effects.

You're on the Air with Dr. Fratellone is based on questions frequently asked by listeners of the New York City radio show House Calls with Dr. Fratellone.
