Medical Choices, Medical Chances
Program Description

Taped in front of a live audience in Boston's Fanueil Hall Marketplace, this program focuses on doctor-patient relationships and the move toward alternative medicine. The crowd responded enthusiastically to a lively face-off involving representatives of government, the medical community and the media. Guest panelists included PBS personality, Dr. Bernie Siegel; Dr. Stephen Barrett, whose mission is to "sniff out quackery"; and ABC's medical editor Dr. Timothy Johnson. Moderated by Arthur Miller.
