Doctors on Call Set to Begin New Season

Doctors on CallA popular local program returns for a new season on Smoky Hills Public Television in 2018. Doctors on Call, back for its 13th season, will premiere January 9 at 7 PM.

Doctors on Call is a program that provides medical information on a variety of different topics. Medical professionals from throughout the state travel to Bunker Hill to provide information and answer questions from the viewing audience. Questions can be called in during the show or emailed prior to the broadcast. The doctors selected each week have expertise in the topic chosen for that program.

Some of this season's topics include women's health, chiropractic care, immunotherapy, pain management, cardiology, physical therapy and dry needling. Due to its popularity in past seasons, this season will again include episodes dedicated to pet health. A schedule of the programs and past episodes are available at smokyhillstv.org.

Last season's Doctors on Call was awarded by the Kansas Association of Broadcasters, helping Smoky Hills Public Television win Non-Metro Station of the Year for the second straight year.

To submit questions electronically on a specific topic, viewers can send an email to [email protected] Questions submitted through email must be received by Noon on the day of the show. During the program, viewers can call 1-800-337-4788.
