Beyond The Stethoscope

Oct 19, 2021

Favorite quotes of the episode: 

“If you are worried about getting mRNA injected into your body, remember, that’s what viruses do, they replicate their genetic material billions of times in your cells.

You are going to meet the RNA one way or another, the question is, do you want to meet 1% of the virus in a vaccine or do you want to meet 100% of it? The question is do you want to meet the whole tiger or just its tail.”

“If you are healthy and have gotten your booster by Thanksgiving or Christmas time, I think you are in a pretty good position to travel.”

“The risk for catching the virus really is the air exchange whether you are in a building or in a plane.”

“In the vaccine world, it’s almost unheard of to get a side-effect with a second or third dose in adults.”

Episode Overview

In this episode, I talk with Dr. Jonathan Baktari to answer some of your most pressing questions about COVID 19.

Dr. Jonathan Baktari, MD is the CEO at both e7 Health and US Drug Test Centers and the host of Baktari MD. e7 health is a preventative health and wellness company that has been called the “the Uber of preventive medicine” and was named the Best Technology Company in the Healthcare Space in 2019. US Drug Test Centers is a nationwide network of over 20,000 testing centers in the US and is revolutionizing drug and alcohol testing across the nation.

Both of these groundbreaking technology companies were born out of a combination of Dr. Baktari’s expertise as a doctor, medical director and educator and his over 20 years of clinical, administrative and entrepreneurial experience. A former, triple board-certified physician with specialties in internal medicine, pulmonary and critical care medicine, being a healthcare CEO is only the latest chapter in Dr. Baktari’s life mission to help others by making integrative preventative medicine available to everyone.

Dr. Baktari has always believed that helping others was the ultimate achievement in life. Now, as a business leader, sought-after speaker and podcast host, he’s excited to share his expertise in preventative health, tech entrepreneurship and other topics that can’t be found anywhere else.
