The Australian Broadcasting Corporation announces that the 12-part factual series Ask The Doctor, will premiere on Tuesday 16 May at 8pm on ABC and ABC iview.

Produced by WTFN, Ask The Doctor is an innovative, fun and exploratory factual series that addresses the state of the world’s health, the latest in medical treatments and the future of healthcare as we know it.

Our trio of accomplished Australian doctors, Dr. Shalin Naik, Dr. Renee Lim, and Dr. Sandro Demaio, travel the country to tackle our big health questions, bust medical myths and uncover the wonders of the human body. Here to answer health questions from how to treat the common cold to how much alcohol to drink, our medical experts deliver reliable, up-to-date medical advice to help people live healthy lives.

Each of the 12 x 30 minute episodes features a different theme ranging from diet, to pain, to sexual health to allergies. From the bedroom to the science laboratory, the dinner table to the operating table, we take a peek behind the medical curtain and explore both the most common and the most uncommon health concerns. We learn what the leading experts in their fields are discovering and witness firsthand the advances they’re making in medical technology and treatments.

Join the doctors as they answer the health questions of the public and deliver the latest in medical advice in a relatable, entertaining, and factual way.

Ask The Doctor is a WTFN production, developed and produced in association with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and produced with the assistance of Film Victoria. Executive Producer: Ariel White, Series Producer: Ged Wood. ABC Commissioning Editor: Julie Hanna, ABC Head of Factual: Steve Bibb.
