MAG has produced the ‘Top Docs’ show since 2014. It addresses important physician, practice management, public health, and patient safety/care issues (e.g., diabetes prevention, opioid misuse, prosthetics). The show’s goal is to help physicians, practice staff, patients and other key stakeholders (e.g., legislators) make better decisions. The program’s hosts include MAG CEO Donald J. Palmisano Jr. and C.W. Hall. The show has reached people in all 50 states and more than 80 countries. It is supported with a grant from Alliant Health Solutions in memory of Tom Williams, its former CEO. Subject to review, MAG offers sponsored editions of the ‘Top Docs’ show. The views of the guests who appear on the ‘Top Docs’ show are theirs and aren’t necessarily consistent with MAG’s policies or positions. Contact Tom Kornegay at tkornegay@mag.org with questions about the MAG ‘Top Docs’ show.
