Highlighting the esoteric link between hair loss and exercise, Dr. Wesley was warmly invited as an hair-loss expert on Sirius Satellite Radio’s Doctor Radio.

Doctor Radio is a groundbreaking concept: a 24/7 radio channel featuring dozens of expert clinicians and researchers hosting live call-in shows from its studio at the Medical Center. It’s real doctors helping real people. Doctor Radio will provide expert information, news, and fascinating stories from the world of health and medicine delivered firsthand by the New York University medical professionals on the front lines of advancing medicine, discussed conversationally and interactively with SIRIUS listeners.
Doctor Radio will delve into topics that matter to millions of Americans, including general health and wellness; child psychiatry; sexual health; plastic surgery; cancer; pediatrics; heart health; men’s and women’s health; sports injuries; dermatology; autism and ADHD; and emergency medicine. SIRIUS’ Doctor Radio hosts from NYU Langone Medical Center include renowned psychiatrists, heart surgeons, emergency care specialists, cardiologists, a police surgeon, as well as physicians who specialize in issues specific to men, women and children.
SIRIUS and NYU have built a state-of-the-art broadcasting studio in the lobby of the Manhattan-based NYU Langone Medical Center to be the broadcast home of Doctor Radio, bringing listeners right into the middle of the medical world. Doctors are minutes from the O.R., the E.R., and seeing patients, and can often be seen performing their radio shows in scrubs.
Going even further into the world of medicine, in the coming weeks, as part of a special series called “Sounds of the Hospital,” Doctor Radio will take listeners inside the operating room during open heart surgery. The series will also feature a night in Bellevue Hospital’s emergency department, one of the busiest in New York City, as well as allow people to listen in and learn from a family in crisis at the NYU Child Study Center.
“Doctor Radio offers listeners a rare level of contact and communication with New York University School of Medicine physicians and scientists,” said Robert I. Grossman, M.D., Saul J. Farber Dean and CEO of NYU Langone Medical Center. “We are so pleased to partner with SIRIUS on Doctor Radio. We will greatly expand the reach and impact of our academic medical center, and the medical information people have access to, as SIRIUS helps us connect daily to millions of diverse listeners across the country.”
“Doctor Radio is a revolutionary concept: leading-edge medicine paired with leading-edge media,” said Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS’ President, Sports and Entertainment. “Top physicians are just a phone call away, able to deliver immediate and insightful medical information and knowledge relevant to our listeners, their families and friends who may never otherwise get this unique access to the highest echelon of doctors.”
