Description

Dr. Priyanka Wali is a licensed and practicing physician who specializes in Internal Medicine and is also a stand up comedian. Sean Hayes is NOT a Doctor and he’s never played one on tv, but he sure is interested in medical stories, medical advice and whatever might be ailing him at any given hour. Each episode, Sean and Dr. Wali bring on a guest with an incredible medical story and discuss the outcome. They’ll also play games, quiz each other on medical history, and learn a thing or two... all in an effort to marry comedy and medicine. We think it’s safe to say that Sean’s not America’s first hypochondriac, but he IS America’s first HypochondriACTOR!

I hadn't listened to any podcasts in a few months and just now chose Sean and Priyanka first, woot-woot! Well, scrolling, I saw these 2 gentlemen. Wowwee... I thoroughly enjoyed this and had immediately subscribed to their podcast. I didn't know they were such good friends and I'm not at all surprised. They are two of my longtime favourite, sexiest actors (hubba) who actually have a lot of talent. Steven, a role that took some massive cojones to even attempt because, come on... following The Jack, you knocked The Shining out of the park! From Chasing Life and Once and Again to Mom, Indebted and Chicago Med (you make that show for me because it's so-so), etc, etc. My Gawd, you are always working! Yahoo pour moi. 😇 I watch most of what I find with Eric, even though I didn't watch Will and Grace until about 5 years ago. I have to say, I loved, loved you singing and playing piano in the end scenes of Perception. Oh my goodness. This Winnipegger adores some of her countrymen. Well done. I g

Sean, I remember you talking about having ocular migraines, because I have them, too. for me, they presented as what appeared to be very large amoebas in my periphery, encroaching upon my vision. They would invade my vision until it got down to a small circle. very disturbing. I rarely got a headache, and almost think that the headache I would get would be from stress, rather than a typical migraine. It was never that painful. I cut out nitrates and they went away. I used to eat processed lunch meat. Once I cut that out, I don't think I have had the migraine since. I hope you find the source of yours. They can be very distressing. Love your show and love the two of you.

I know this is crazy Sean and Priyanka but I am listening to this episode a little late on June 21st and I just got done listening to the song Poison from Bell biv DeVoe while I was ordering my coffee and then you continued with your story here talking about the song Poison and the little rift and not getting it out of your head and I just think that is very cool and a little karmically funny. 😆 Sean a bit of fan forever and Priyanka you are amazing as well and I look forward to seeing some of your stand up!! much love from Minnesota. ❤️

I have overlooked the references to politics and bashing former presidents but this episodes with yet another privileged, liberal Hollywood twit was too much. This could have been a great podcast for those who appreciate medical issues. For people who swear they are non judgemental you're just another couple of bullies who push your own political agenda.

She's great until she brings up politics. Please no more politics or I'm out.

Sean, can you elaborate on what you said you take for sleeping please? I am an insomniac also and have been wondering about cbd/thc products but I don't want to just go out and blow a bunch of money. I just need a starting point and figure out who to talk to or what company to talk to first. Love the podcast and Sean, I am a lifelong fan of yours and Priyanka it is so good to "meet" you through this podcast. I think you are fantastic!

Hi folks! I just discovered your podcast last week and just heard this one with Mr. Kimmel. Block Therapy is a wonderful practice that, with discipline of only a few minutes a day, dramatic changes have happened for thousands of people worldwide, for numerous physical and emotional complications. Those with Neuropathy (and also for Anxiety, Sean) have found relief. It's simply a practice of lying on specific blocks and then doing small and slow movements to "melt" fascia adhesions. It has helped my Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain. It has reversed Scoliosis, lessened Sciatica, healed sprains quickly, eliminated cellulite, lessened wrinkles, etc, etc. I know it sounds too good to be true but it is for real! I don't recall what the problem someone had but with the practice, the need for surgery has been eliminated! The founder is based in Winnipeg, you know, the centre of the world hahahaha, I had been forced to do so many things following 2 car accidents, including the incredibl

I have really enjoyed your podcast. My mother is dying of Alzheimer's and I wasn't aware of the diabetic connection, so thank you for giving me another tool to fight against the same fate. In that respect, I was wondering whether Stevia sweetened drinks should also be avoided?
