The Faces of Dr. Oz’s 15-Minute Physicals

Dr. Oz enjoys a conversation with a patient in Philadelphia.

This past spring, Dr. Oz and his team went to work to set up a series of 15-Minute Physicals. At these events, Dr. Oz and the hosting hospitals were able to work with patients on a large scale. While 15 minutes may not seem like much face-to-face time, you’d be surprised by how much information you can learn about your body. And sometimes, those 15 minutes saved lives.

Here are some of the faces of the people who made the 15-Minute Physicals a success – those who helped and those who received the much-needed treatments and health counseling they deserved.
