"Finally this evening, the power of
a smile in medicine. In the latter part of the last century, a Canadian
doctor Sir William Osler was one of the very first to recognize the
importance of the bedside manner, including the healing power of humor.
We suspect he would approve of Dr. Stu Silverstein . . . Silverstein
is in demand by medical groups and hospitals throughout the US. In speeches
and seminars, he teaches fellow physicians how to create jokes and suggests
when to use them."
PETER JENNINGS ABC
"Silverstein is a pediatrician in San Francisco
and an award winning professional comedian. He combines the two skills
in seminars for doctors called STANDUP MEDICINE and he leaves more than
a few surgeons in stitches . .The hospital may be the last place you'd
ever think of going to for laughs, but from now on, don't be surprised
if your doctor says, take two punchlines and call me in the morning"
