Biography

Peter Salgo, M.D.--an experienced medical correspondent, professor and practicing physician--is one of this country's most respected health care futurists. In addition to having spoken before hundreds of professional and lay audiences, he has published articles on such timely issues as drug pricing schedules in the United States as compared to those of other Western nations; Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; the current progress of fetal surgery; Retin A--its risks and benefits; plastic and cosmetic surgery; and AIDS--its effects upon its victims and the health care system in general.

Dr. Salgo has examined the proposed health care plans of both major parties and has compared them for audiences around the nation.

Dr. Salgo's book, The Heart of the Matter, examined the groundbreaking new developments in heart attack prevention. It offered a clear plan for all Americans to avoid premature death.

Millions have viewed Dr. Salgo on television and have listened to him on the radio, currently as the host of Second Opinion, the PBS broadcast that is seen in more than 220 markets nationwide. His broadcast lectures have been aired on the CBS Television Network and its affiliated stations, the CBS Radio Network and its affiliated stations, as well as the CNBC Television Network and its affiliated stations.

Additionally, he has served as a medical consultant for dramatic series on all three major television networks. He has been a frequent guest on NPR's The People's Pharmacy.
