Hi, everybody! I’m Dr. Riyaz.

I’m a dermatologist and skin cancer surgeon. 

When I’m in clinic my patients and I have countless interesting conversations. But when the office doors close the conversation isn’t over!

I started a podcast to continue those conversations with you – and to discuss the issues and ideas that come up with experts.

Here you can listen to conversations with the gurus in health, wellness and technology as we try to answer some of life’s biggest questions. 

Check our Twitter for upcoming topics or send us a DM with your burning questions! 

I hope you stick around.
