Dr Oz: Dr Jim Withers
Dr Oz introduced a doctor that you mind find in unexpected places when he is not in the office. Dr Jim Withers makes it his mission to provide healthcare to an underserved population that needs it most: the homeless.
Cameras followed Dr Withers as he made house calls to people who live on the streets. This is something he has done for 20 years on the streets of Pittsburgh, armed with a backpack of supplies and medications. One patient said that he prefers being seen in a non-traditional environment, because hospitals are often dismissive of homeless patients, especially those who have a history of drug abuse.
