    Ira Byock, MD is wonderful. Having had him on your show, you should have paid attention to what he had to say about end of life, palliative care and hospice!!!

  2. says

    I agree with Phyllis. Ira Byock has much more practical experience with the issues people face in the final stages of terminal illness than anyone else on that panel, but he’s not a “celebrity” like Williams or Ablow. The show’s primary mission is to *entertainment* – and to promote Oz and his many corporate ties.

    One thing they should revise is the description at the top saying the show was a discussion about whether or not assisted suicide should be an option for the terminally ill. Both Montel Williams and Oz made it clear they didn’t think it should be limited to people who were dying at all – with Oz it was about unrelieved suffering (which he wouldn’t define) and for Williams it was whenever he thought it was time. A little more honesty in advertising the show would be nice, but it might be too much to ask.
