“In the Ladies’ Room with Dr. Donnica” is the only public ladies' room you can enter any time without ever waiting on line! Hosted by women’s health expert and media commentator Donnica Moore MD, the podcast will feature real conversations, with real women, about really intimate issues. They may be embarrassing, sad or funny, but they will always be
interesting & informative. You know, like the best conversations you've ever had in ladies' rooms with your best friends. . .or total strangers. . .and a physician!

With a wide variety of guests with “been there, done that” expertise, Dr. Donnica discusses the health and wellness topics women often talk with her about in the ladies’ room. . . after speaking engagements, media
briefings, at events, or just because they happen to be chatting anonymously while waiting on line or over the sink. Generally, these topics tend to be things that are embarrassing; issues Dr. Donnica calls “the Toilet Talk topics” (anything related to bowel or bladder issues, gas, bodily functions, periods, discharges, etc.); questions related to sex and intimacy; subjects women are uncomfortable discussing in public or in “mixed company”; challenges women are struggling with; or anything top of mind or in the news. In each topic, we add our Top Tips about that topic as well as a call to action.

Are you sick of false information circulating in the news and social media about important health care topics from COVID 19 to vaccines to what we should eat to what undies we should wear? Well, so am I and so is today’s guest Dr. Nina Shapiro, a graduate of Harvard Medical School. She is the Director of Pediatric Ear, Nose, and Throat at the Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA and Professor of Head and Neck Surgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. With more than two decades of experience in clinical and academic medicine, she’s a trusted expert whom her patients and the media rely on to set the record straight about health fads and misconceptions. Her book “HYPE: A Doctor’s Guide to Medical Myths, Exaggerated Claims, and Bad Advice - How to Tell What’s Real and What’s Not” addresses these myths.


Today in the ladies’ room, Dr. Donnica and Dr. Shaprio go through some of the big hype that we hear about medical issues and figure out what is true and what isn’t. There are so many products and trends about our health, but it’s important to remember to get the medical information as opposed to the hype about medical treatments. She also talks about the importance of risk. Every day there is a certain amount of risk we face, but how do we factor in risk when it comes to medical procedures? And they talk about the celebrities who try to sell dangerous, overpriced products to women.
