What's Up, Doc? is a weekly segment sponsored by MercyHealth.

This week's episode is "Ins and Outs of Radiation Treatment."

Oncologist Dr. Gregory Richards is this week's guest.

Dr. Richards was another great guest for our weekly segment. Cancer is a scary subject and Dr. Richards showed the kind of bedside manner with us that surely makes him a great asset to his patients.

The world of radiology has grown significantly over the past 20 years. Dr. Richards talks to us about how his job has changed along the way.

There are a lot of questions that cancer patients don't even know to ask when they first get diagnosed and Dr. Richards walks us through what patients, and families of patients, should ask when they are initially diagnosed.

This will be our last What's Up, Doc? segment of the year. Two people that I would like to personally thank would be Trish Reed with MercyHealth and Heather Olsen with Townsquare Media. Trish is the one who coordinates with all our doctors and gets us all the information for the interviews. She's been great to communicate with and has a knack for finding doctors at MercyHealth that are not only very knowledgeable in their respective fields but also sound great on the radio. She and Heather Olsen have made this partnership successful and mutually beneficial.

We're looking forward to talking to more doctors next year. In the meantime, thanks for listening and have a wonderful holiday.
