Ask the Doctor

Got a health question? Maybe you’ve been too embarrassed to ask or the doc hasn’t been around when you needed an ear. Well, the doctors are in – and here’s your chance to ask whatever’s on your mind.

Do anti-aging creams really work? Is alcohol actually bad for your health? How can you tell if what seems like a regular headache could have more serious consequences? What toll does the economy have on your heart and what’s the best way to lower stress?

These are all important questions, and we know you have many more.

Our friends at ColumbiaDoctors Eastside, based right here in New York City, will answer as many questions as possible on a variety of topics, from headaches, to back pain to skin problems.
ColumbiaDoctors Eastside is a group of more than 200 doctors, dentists and nurse practitioners in 128 specialties. The doctors are on the faculty at Columbia University's College of Physicians & Surgeons, College of Dental Medicine or School of Nursing and have appointments at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

We may not be able to get to every question, but we'll answer as many as we can. Check back in the coming weeks for responses. If you have a serious concern, however, you should contact your doctor or go to an emergency room immediately.
