Dr. Drew answers critics on diagnosing people on TV
Dr. Drew had been criticized recently for diagnosing people he has watched on TV.
In tonight's show, he'll address that very issue.
“People ask me, and I'm confused by it," Dr. Drew said. "How come you can make political commentary, you can make weather commentary, but if you know something about human behavior and medicine, you can't make medical commentary?”
Dr. Drew furthered his point by saying: “I could be sitting here with you, or reading about it – I can tell [you] what that is. Now I don't know the details about it, I don't know psychologically or the social functioning is of it, but I can look at a medical problem and say, 'I know what that is.' It's pretty easy.”
Watch the the show's premiere tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
