  1. I would love to bring curb side consult to Flint, MI. More specifically, downtown flint during an art walk! It’s a form of practicing your art on a really diverse population!

  2. Dude you need to hit Alabama with some of this knowledge. Maybe even hold an event to educate some of the doctors too. That would help more

  3. Doctor Mike is handsome, that's why most girls just look at him at being like "yummy' and then Dr Mike "Hi" Random Girl
    "WooHoo, Sweet Christmas"

  4. Do one in Bend Oregon… Or outside of Madras Oregon's hospital… A lot of people I know here aren't completely confident in the abilities of the doctors there…

  5. Embarrassed to ask a question to the doctor privately so it's been done on YouTube for millions to see.
    Logic: Am I a joke to you?

  6. Hey Doctor Mike! @2:17 The only alternative sweetener that the gut bacteria in our colon can feed upon is Stevia. Aspartame consists of phenylalanine with an added methyl group and aspartic acid which are all natural amino acids and as a result is digested just like dietary protein, so it doesn't reach the microbiome of the large intestine. What you guys should be cautious about is if you have a condition called phenylketonuria (PKU) then you should avoid consuming food high in phenylalanine because your body can't metabolize it correctly and it builds up reaching toxic levels in your system. Keep it up and keep studying! Greetings from a Greek med student.

  7. Just to modify two of the his early remarks about blood and soup…blood doesn't really adopt a blue hue at all when de-oxygenated, but instead becomes a darker, deeper red. The reason the veins appear blue is due to the light spectrum. In the visible light spectrum, blue is of the shorter wavelengths, and as such, penetrates the layers of the skin most effectively, while the others are absorbed and scattered more. More blue makes it back to the eye, and gives superficial veins the blue appearance.

    As for chicken noodles soup, it helps to alleviate the symptoms, and may indirectly support the body by correcting electrolyte imbalances during sickness. In people who would otherwise not eat enough during their illness, it will help provide their body with constituents that support their recovery. But no evidence exists to show that this changes the course of illness, shortening the duration, or improving immune response beyond what it will do naturally, in the absence of deficiencies. But that could be hard to explain on the spot to a group of people passing by, so no flack intended here.

  8. I suggest you do this in a high school or a college in a low income area… the older generation are too stuck in their ways to be improved upon by a 5 minute consult but the younger generation has the ability to be impacted upon as to a good doctor caring what happens to them.

  9. If your ever in Toronto, Ontario Canada 🇨🇦 you should do a curb side consult here 🙂 preferably in the beaches area 😉

  10. I get enough sleep, around 7 hours and I still yawn during daytime. Why? And how do I stop myself during important times like interviews and presentations.

  11. "Is blood really blue?" Not unless you're an octopus or a Vulcan. Then your hemoglobin is called hemocyanine and is based on copper instead of iron 😉

  12. Instead of telling people to "eat less calories" you should tell people to "eat healthier" or something along those lines. When people hear "eat less calories" they hear "you need to eat less". That then can lead people towards an eating disorder. Trust me, made that mistake myself while growing up. People don't just naturally think of eating foods that contain less (empty) calories, such as a balanced meal, instead they take it as "okay, so i eat once or twice a day instead of three times" and still go for fast food or something equally bad for them. For a lot of people it's not the amount they eat but what they're eating. I've never had an over active metabolism yet i can eat 4-6 times a day of (not over portioned) healthy food and be at a healthy weight. If you don't eat correctly then doing all the other stuff to lose weight won't help nearly as well. It all starts with eating food which is good for you, over stuff that basically just passes through you and/or has little to no nutrition. Also, balancing meat, dairy, and starch intake with that of fruits and veggies. The average American eats way too much meat, dairy, and starch. A good way I was taught your personal perfect serving portion for meat on a daily basis, is to compare it to your palm. The size and thickness of your palm is basically your perfect daily serving portion for meat and anything over that is excess. Dairy and starch also should be in moderation. In no way are carbs bad for you, however starchy foods often make up the majority of peoples' meals (along with meat and dairy) and that is not balanced. Veggies should make up about a third to half of your meal, some of which can be replaced with fruits instead.
    Eating less, unless someone has an over eating disorder, is almost never the answer. Sumos eat an extremely healthy meal once a day in order to bulk up. Why? Because the body goes into "survival mode" when hungry and starts stock piling for the next food shortage, thus bulking the person up with whatever it can. The only reason why the method works despite them only eating once a day and an extremely healthy meal at that is due to them eating less, which then causes them to actually gain more weight. (Note that this is completely different from anorexia so please no comments relating this example to that condition.)

  13. Please come to California!!! Specifically the Bay Area!!!! We have UCSF AND Stanford here along with great people and great food!! I would love to ask you questions. I actually have one right now. I have multiple health issues which in the past years have made me take many breaks from school. I'm 25 almost 26 and want to become a surgeon (specifically Pediatrics). Is it still worth going to med school even though I still need to transfer to a university to complete my undergrad?? Also is there any other way that could get me there a little faster like going through a program at a medical vocational school like Unitek? Or become a nurse first? My parents seem to think that would be faster and beneficial to me but I don't think so. I feel like I would get stuck there and not pursue my dream. Many of my doctors feel that becoming a doctor would very much suit me because I'm very good and diagnosing medical problems and because I have seen the patient point of view. Luckily my health issues are stable now. I don't want to give up my dream Dr.Mike it's something I truly live for and want to help people and kids.

  14. Please for the love of all that is holy come and do this in Seattle! The questions you'll get will blow your mind. 😂

  15. Those techniques for studying are really great advice and I don’t understand why I forgot them this semester when I usually am the one giving them

  16. You should come to the Oxford of East – beautiful city of Pune and do a curbside consult. You'd be surprised by what you see 😉

  17. I suggest u to come India if possible because people try craziest things on their health due to lack of awareness 🤷
