Dr Oz: Ebola Doctor Rick Sacra
Now that the Ebola Virus has appeared in New York City in patient Dr. Craig Spencer, fears of a potential outbreak have flared yet again. Dr Oz invited another physician who survived the deadly virus, Dr. Rick Sacra, to talk about his experience with the disease.
Dr. Sacra and his wife were on the show in their first interview since his diagnosis. Rick and Debbie lived in Liberia for 15 years. He was in the U.S. when he heard the news that his colleague, Dr. Kent Brantly, contracted the Ebola Virus. Sacra felt compelled to pitch in, so he returned to Liberia, but soon he developed a fever and Ebola symptoms.
