Is a Blood Clot ready to kill you? Find out on the next live Call the Doctor on WVIA
(2013-05-07)
(wvia) - Our panel takes your questions about Blood Clots on the next live Call the Doctor on Tuesday, May 14 at 7 p.m. on WVIA TV.

Blood flows within our blood vessels and forms blood clots when it fails to circulate adequately. Some blood clots are good and some are so bad that they can be deadly. Heart attacks and strokes result from the sudden formation of a blood clot that travels to heart or brain.

Joining Moderator George Thomas to discuss blood clots are Adil Ahmed Khan, MD, Neurologist at Geisinger-Community Medical Center, and (G-CMC) Stroke Program Medical Director at Geisinger Health System and Dr. Donna Eget from Medicus Urgent Care, Board Certified ER Physician.

Viewers may call in questions during the live show at 1-800-326-9842 or submit their questions online at http://www.wvia.org/live-show-comments.

After its live presentation this program will be made available online at http://on-demand.wvia.org/program/call-doctor/.
