#PodSession with General/Trauma Surgeon Dr. Buck Parker

Dr. Buck Parker, MD is a General and Trauma Surgeon, Reality TV Star and Social Media Maven. This episode is a laid back one on one conversation. We include 15 minutes of bonus content at the end of the episode talking about our similar journey of going from unmatched to matched into residency.

Today’s episode is a new edition to our #PodSession series where we chat with our favorite guests. Dr. Buck Parker, MD is a General and Trauma Surgeon as well as a frequent cast member on celebrity reality TV Shows. We talk a little bit about his most recent experience on the television show The Proposal, and how he got involved in reality television. We also dive into his experience starting out as a young doctor, going into private practice, and we include some learning on Gallbladders!

Dr. Buck, leant me some good advice a few months ago after I found out that I did not match through the national resident match. It was a tough experience finding out you did not match, when all your friends were celebrating and posting their well deserved success. Fortunately, there was a happy ending to my story and and to Dr. Buck’s as well, and it just shows that this did not define either one of us. The last 15 minutes of this episode were dedicated to anyone who might feel scared about not matching into residency or anyone else for that matter who may be facing any kind of adversity.

Medelita'sperformance fabric is the best in the industry. Many scrub companies don't like to advertise this, but their scrubs require washing in cold water and low tumble dry or else they start to lose their performance features and sag/lose shape. Washing in cold water is really not great if you're working with patients and bodily fluids all day since hot water is a lot more sanitary and effective at killing those germs. 

Medelita scrubs can be washed at any temperature - Many people who work in hospitals need their scrubs to be washed in industrial laundry settings, and Medelita scrubs can withstand literally hundreds of scalding hot washes without losing any of the fabric integrity. Medelita is the ONLY stretch scrub fabric that can be washed at any temperature, and the performance features are all integrated into the fabric so they won't wash out over time. Medelita founder Lara Francisco makes sure that every single batch of scrub fabric - is washed 50 times at the hottest possible settings to make sure it's the right quality. They’re also the only company to offer a warranty on all our scrubs and lab coats!
